CSIRO commits to Tassie IT research

The Apple isle switches on to IT

The CSIRO now has a dedicated ICT research presence in Tasmania with the opening today of the Tasmanian Information and Communication Technologies Centre (TasICTC).

The $30 million centre will conduct research across a variety of areas including water resource information systems, tailored health information delivery and marine observations networks.

TasICTC is a venture between the federal and Tasmanian governments through the Intelligent Island Program, and CSIRO which agreed in 2006 to establish the centre. Employment of ICT researchers began after that agreement and the centre now houses 30 research staff, according to CSIRO spokesperson Joanne Finlay.

CSIRO’s Tasmanian ICT Centre is also working with the University of Tasmania through a joint doctoral scholarship program. Over the life of the centre, 10 post-grad students from the university will work with the centre’s researchers.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

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!
