ASIO pays eDIME for Dawesome web experience

According to eDIME's managing director, Marcus St. John Dawe, the ASIO site, which is remotely hosted and managed by eDIME, contains historical and current information about the government agency's movements, as well as ASIO career opportunity information.

The ASIO deal is the latest in a string of government internet contracts for eDIME, whose list of credits already includes the websites of the Australian Taxation Office, the Australian Defence Force and the prime minister.

The $5 million, 20-employee, privately funded company was responsible for the site management of last year's referendum vote, and will do the same for next year's federal election, Dawe said.

Dawe acknowledged that the ASIO site could appear an attractive target to hackers, but stressed that the site is not connected in any way to ASIO's internal confidential files.

"Worldwide, governments are waking up to denial-of-service attacks," he said.

Nevertheless, eDIME will provide ongoing firewall security for the site as well as 24 x 7 support.

Dawe could not disclose the monetary value of the ASIO website deal, but described it as "mid-sized".

Dawe expects eDIME will remain busy for the foreseeable future with government website development since newly formed online guidelines -- pertaining to site visibility and metadata requirements -- mean that many government sites need upgrading.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
