Free news and finance -- at the touch of a button

The local arm of Internet navigational organisation Yahoo! has launched a new version of its To-Go service, expanding it to include search, news and finance information.

The To-Go service allows Web publishers to add a Yahoo! button to their pages and thereby provide customer access to the Yahoo! site and specialised search engines -- all for free.

The new tools allow Web designers to customise the area of interest on the site. News Search allows for a keyword to be entered into the search form and Yahoo! then provides the pre-programmed button which can be copied and pasted into any HTML page. Then when the button is selected on the Web page, a search is automatically started to locate the latest news surrounding the keyword.

The Finance Search operates in a similar way, with a Web designer entering an Australian Stock Exchange stock ticker. Stock prices, company profile and financial news articles can be retrieved by clicking on the button.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
