Seagate decides: Time for a new name

"The whole name change is about capitalising on the Crystal brand," said Fred King, Crystal Decisions' regional director.

This Crystal brand is evidenced by the company's popular reporting products Crystal Reports and Crystal Enterprise -- both of which have updated versions to coincide with the announcement on Monday.

However, there has been one glitch in the new roll over. The lucrative .com domain has eluded it. The company will trade under www.crystaldecisions.net. The .com is owned by a cybersquatter who is demanding an "enormous" amount to hand over the domain. It is believed Crystal Decisions is negotiating for a better price.

Seagate Software was a subsidiary of Seagate Technology. Seagate Technology was bought by Veritas Software and an investment group Silver Lake Partners in a complex $US20 billion deal in March last year.

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

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.
