iPrimus broadband goes troppo

iPrimus broadband subscribers who missed the 2003 Intel Tropfest short film festival will now be able to view a selection of the 723 entries received for this year’s competition through the ISP’s new dedicated online library.

Intel Tropfest founder and creative director John Polson said the selection of films for the new library highlights the diversity of Australian story telling and showcases the work of Australia’s emerging filmmakers.

“Intel Tropfest exists to encourage short film production and our partnerships with Primus Telecom enables us to generate new audiences for the short film format,” he said.

Primus Telecom, a major sponsor of the Tropfest event, will make the selection of films exclusive to its iPrimus’ broadband customers only.

As well as an assortment of entries received for the 2003 festival, broadband users will also gain access to one of the 16 finalist films via the iPrimus electronic newsletter.

Primus Telecom general manager Geoff Neate said the offering was in line with giving broadband subscribers access to exciting, quality content.

Although access to the films is free, downloading any of the films, which are about 6MB in size, will come out of the subscriber’s monthly download limit.

The Tropfest festival is held in parks across Australia in February every year.

More information is available on iPrimus’ Tropfest Web site: www.tropfest.iprimus.com.au

And to coincide with the new Tropfest/iPrimus broadband partnership, Primus Telecom is offering one year’s broadband Internet access to Tropfest fans who e-mail them with their choice of which 2003 film they would most like to get access to online and why. The most creative answer will win a 12 month Frustration Free iPrimus Broadband connection valued at $900. Check out the Tropfest Web site at: www.tropfest.com for more details.

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.)

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.

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.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
