Aussie Bites Pop!

Ahh, a book about being 10, hating your teacher and complaining about girl germs! This is a story about a young boy, Jack, who wishes to discover why a weasel would go "pop" in the children's rhyme "Pop goes the weasel". After deciding that it probably doesn't relate to flatulence, Jack decides to search for his answer on the Net.

With his curiosity in tow he accidentally conjures up a cyber weasel, named Pop, from the depths of cyberspace. This is where the fun starts. Pop plans to enjoy himself and has a hankering for movies, PlayStation games and popcorn. And the amount of mischief the little weasel brings is enough to keep Jack on his toes. The colourful antics of the weasel and the mishaps of the intensely curious Jack, set against a backdrop of frustrated teachers, firmly plant this Internet adventure in a world to which kids can relate.

While the build-up and search for an answer was good, the ending was a little disappointing. And, unfortunately, the illustrations seem underdeveloped, whereas they could have complemented the story well. Certainly a book for computer buffs in the upper primary grades.

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.

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.
