Australia Day Comp Winners

After an incredible response, our Australia Day competition has now been drawn. We had a huge number of entries ranging from ridiculous to incredible, funny and elaborate as well as simple three word responses like "chuckin' a sickie".

Anyware Smokeless Ashtray

It's not everyday that we get to review a product that is cute and can kill you. The Anyware Smokeless Ashtray is an adorable yellow VW Beetle with a flip top head containing a fan which sucks smoke from a cigarette and dissipates it so it doesn't es...

Creative ProdiKeys PC-MIDI

Way back in the heyday, when the Commodore 64 (C64) was the latest fad, an accessory was released that when placed over the C64 keyboard turned it into a piano. This was mind blowing at the time and we were envious of anyone who had the luck to own ...

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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.

Aysha Strobbe

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

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!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

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.
