Telstra's e-mail support gave me the $#!@%

Moving house is never easy, and it can be downright frustrating if you have to get Telstra involved. You'll need to get Telstra involved if you want to install a phone line that will allow you to go with any third-party ISP of your choice.

Okay, maybe Telstra won't build the NBN after all

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
