Telstra BigPond snags rights to Spore Origins

Telstra customers get mobile version of EA's evolutionary puzzle game

Telstra BigPond has announced it has exclusive Australian mobile rights to the multiplayer version of Spore — the new universe-in-a-box game from Electronic Arts. Australian gamers will be able to use their Next G mobile phones to play the game, search for friends and challenge Spore players from around the world.

“We’re dedicated to bringing the very best in mobile entertainment to fans Australia-wide and we are proud to be a part of such an innovative and unique opportunity”, BigPond group managing director Justin Milne said.

The partnership was welcomed by the game’s publisher, EA Mobile. Mark Fordham, head of sales and marketing, said: “Partnering with Australia’s biggest mobile network means fans can get Spore on their mobile nearly anywhere in the country. We’re looking forward to seeing a strong Aussie presence in [the game].”

Spore Origins is played over 18 stages, with players fighting for survival as multi-cellular organisms. Players survive in the game by attacking and eating competitors while avoiding being eaten themselves. Each Spore Origins creature is custom built by the player and is subjected to evolution with opportunities to add or remove unique features and abilities.

Spore Origins can be purchased from the BigPond portal on Telstra mobiles for $7. BigPond is the exclusive Australian online retailer of Spore Origins Connected Version.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
