The Australian Broadcasting Corporation switched on its digital radio services yesterday in Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Sydney.

Simulcasts of existing ABC Radio stations, such as the youth-oriented Triple J and news-focused ABC NewsRadio, are now taking place on both digital and analog spectrums.

Three new music stations are also available — ABC DiG Music, ABC Jazz and ABC Country — bringing the total number of stations up to 13.

The start-up of the new stations was celebrated with an event featuring performances from Australian artists Sarah Blasko, Paul Grabowsky and Jasmine Rae.

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.

MSI GS75

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.

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.
