CommBiz downtime hits morning peak hour trading

The Commonwealth Bank’s online business banking Web site went down for over two hours today.

The Commonwealth Bank’s online business banking Web site went down at 9am this morning following a fault with one of the service's access points.

According to the Commonwealth Bank’s media advisor, Nichole Ismay, the CommBiz business banking site access point was not operating for a short period of time this morning. While the service access point was down until 11.30am, customers were able to access their accounts using the CommBank site.

“Customers were at all times still able to access the full CommBiz service through CommBank”, she said. “The site was back online at approximately 11.30am this morning.”

The CommBiz banking site is specifically designed for the company’s business customers and provides access to account transactions as well as the CommBiz Markets area which encompasses its Ecommcorporate and Business Foreign Exchange services.

Macquarie Bank also experienced downtime on its banking site this morning. According to a spokesperson the service disruption was caused by a connectivity issue to its back-end server.

She estimated the downtime was only 10 minutes and stated that it was only experienced on one level of the site and that most of the other areas of the site were unaffected.

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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
