Apple Introduces iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Red Special Edition

Apple has introduced the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Red Special Edition to help provide testing, counselling and treatment for tens of millions of people living with HIV/AIDS.

Both phones sport a beautiful glass enclosure in red with a matching aluminium band and sleek black front.

Apple also introduced a new Red iPhone X Leather Folio. Crafted from specially tanned and finished European leather for a luxurious look and feel, the new folio joins other Red devices and accessories available. A portion of all proceeds from all Red purchases go directly to Global Fun HIV/AIDS grants that provide testing, counselling, treatment and prevention programs with a specific focus on eliminating transmission of the virus from mothers to their babies.

Since partnering with (RED) in 2006, Apple has donated more than USD$160 million to the Global Fun, serving as the organisations largest corporate donor.

“This special edition Red iPhone features a stunning red and black colour combination and also offers customers the opportunity to make an impact in fighting the spread of HIV and AIDS,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s Vice President of Product Marketing.

“This announcement is further evidence of Apple’s leadership in and commitment to the AIDS fight since the beginning of (RED) in 2006,” said Deborah Dugan, (RED)’s CEO.

“The more than $160 million Apple has donated in the last 11 years today equates to more than 800 million days of lifesaving ARV medication that prevents the transmission of HIV from mothers to their babies. We’re honoured that Apple has dedicated its resources to our purpose, and can’t wait to see customers bring our mission to life through the purchase of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Red Special Edition.”

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition will be available in 64GB and 256GB models starting at $1079 from apple.com/au. The new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone X Leather Folio will be available for $145.

Dynabook Portégé® X30L-G notebook

I have had the pleasure of owning notebooks from Dynabook’s predecessor Toshiba for both work and leisure in the past. Toshiba’s attention to quality of build and design of the notebooks is second to none. The re-branding to Dynabook and the launch of the new range was completed in early 2019. I am pleased to confirm that not only did Dynabook further refine what Toshiba has left off; they have set a new benchmark for the ultra-light notebook category.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

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.

MSI PS63

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

Brother RJ-4230B

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.
