Vodafone's Visual Voicemail service

Vodafone Australia has become the first mobile network in Australia to offer the visual voicemail feature for customers with an iPhone 3G.

The Visual Voicemail application allows iPhone 3G users to see who has left a voicemail message and the time they left it, eliminating the need to listen to messages in the order that they were left. Vodafone users can save up to 20 Visual Voicemail messages on their iPhone.

The feature was previously not available in Australia, despite being a core feature of the original iPhone when it was first launched in the US in 2007.

"Vodafone is thrilled to be launching this Australian-first application to Vodafone iPhone 3G customers," said Edward Goff of Vodafone Australia. "Our iPhone 3G customers will no longer have to trawl through all their voicemails to get to the ones they want to hear."

All current Vodafone iPhone 3G customers will have access to the Visual Voicemail application by Friday 29 May. Vodafone will progressively notify iPhone customers via text messages alerting them to the new service.

Activating the Visual Voicemail feature is done by syncing your iPhone, checking for updates in iTunes and then turning the phone off and on. Tapping the voicemail button in the contacts menu should then open the Visual Voicemail screen. Messages are displayed in a simple list format and are sorted by date and time. Touching a message will play it back, and users can even skip messages completely.

More information can be found at Vodafone's Web site.

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.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
