You little ripper: download site showcases Aussie software

Consumers wishing to buy Australian-made software and demonstrate that patriotic streak have a new online destination.

Melbourne-based software house Crystal Software this week launched, a site that highlights Australian-made software.

According to a release from Crystal Software, downloadpipe displays the Australian Made logo next to qualifying products. These products are listed first in search results, followed by software from Australian companies, then overseas vendors.

"We've always know that Australians write great software, and downloadpipe makes it easier than ever for Australian consumers to search for and find Australian Made products," said Simon Carter, MD of Crystal Software.

According to Carter the site automatically detects updated software on an hourly basis. About 24 000 products are currently listed.

Examples of software listed include BlackMagic, an application that converts black & white photos to colour; and Natural Ambience - Sound Therapy Software 1.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
