Vodafone sponsors Ashes

Vodafone and 3 customers to receive cricket content and behind the scenes footage during Ashes series

Vodafone will sponsor the upcoming Ashes series, making the announcement on 2 June under a bevy of red at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

Key members of the current Australian team turned out for the launch, including captain Ricky Ponting and vice-captain Michael Clarke, with the latter being named Vodafone’s new ambassador.

Vodafone Hutchison Australia CEO, Nigel Dews, said that the telco's customers will be able to receive cricket content and behind the scenes footage during the Ashes series, which begins in November.

“The sponsorship of the Vodafone Ashes Series represents a fantastic opportunity for more Australian cricket fans to get closer to the game than ever before. We're proud to continue our sponsorship of the team and the new series with our Vodafone brand, giving our seven million customers on Vodafone and 3 access to exclusive cricket content so they never have to miss a ball or a wicket,” he said.

Clarke said that he was happy to see that larger numbers would be able to access the all important end-of-year series, which Australia looks to reclaim after going down 2-1 to England in the series last year.

“The team are training phenomenally hard in the lead up to the Vodafone Ashes Series and we’re more than ready to take on England in November. This is such an exciting time for Australian cricket and we’re delighted more people across Australia will be sharing that excitement with the team,” Clarke said.

The first Test in the Vodafone Ashes series will take place at The Gabba on November 25.

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.)

Brother PT-P750W

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.

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.
