Australian iPhone 4 users to get free cases

Optus is also providing free cases to iPhone 4 customers

Apple has confirmed Australian iPhone 4 buyers will receive a free case until 30 September.

Following widely reported reception problems in the US when the iPhone 4 is held in a certain way, Apple announced earlier this month that all iPhone 4 buyers will receive a free case from Apple, or a rebate on a previously purchased case.

Apple has confirmed the same will occur in Australia. iPhone 4 customers are required to download a free iPhone 4 case app from the App Store (iPhone 4 case program), sign in with their iTunes account and place an order for the case, which will then be delivered.

The free cases on offer in Australia are Apple's Bumper Case, and a number of third-party cases including the Incase Snap, Belkin Shield Micra, Griffin Motif, Reveal and Perforated Silicone, Speck Fitted and PixelSkin HD.

Optus confirmed it would offer a free Apple bumper case for all iPhone 4 customers. "To ensure Optus customers have the best possible experience with their new iPhone 4, Optus will be providing free bumpers to all customers from launch on July 30," said an Optus spokesperson. "This will be a free, optional extra for all Optus iPhone 4 customers." the offer also applies to Virgin Mobile, a subsidiary of Optus in Australia.

Neither Telstra nor VHA is following Optus' lead, instead relying on Apple to handle the free case process.

MSI GS75

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.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

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!
