Toshiba users go cordless

SkyNetGlobal has just completed Australia's largest 802.11b wireless network, which connects to 27 airport lounges and 13 airports throughout the country and selected major hotels in CBDs.

Under the alliance, Toshiba's corporate customer base, which includes more than 1000 companies, will be able to e-mail and connect to the Internet and office LANs in any area covered by the SkyNetGlobal network without the fuss of wires and phone-plugs.

The alliance was announced at Toshiba's annual mobile computing conference last week in Melbourne. "This is very much where our business is focused this year," says Bruce Lakin, Toshiba Australia's general manager.

Wireless capabilities will be integrated into all Toshiba's upcoming products, making the alliance an important leveraging tool.

The partnership will involve a number of joint marketing initiatives, the first of which will involve the linking of SkyNetGlobal's Web site to Toshiba's homepage and an online facility to subscribe directly to the SkyNetGlobal broadband wireless service.

SkyNetGlobal is the first company in the world to rollout an international subscription-based universal broadband wireless network based on the IEEE 802.11b international standard. Its major shareholders include Cabletron Systems, Qantas Airways, Ernst&Young and Leo Burnett.

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.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
