There was the brick, the flip, the lipstick, and the smartphone… what next? by Livvy

SmartphonesBack in the early 80’s the cool kids on Wall Street owned the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X (for those too young to know, it was a the first commercial mobile phone the size of a brick). In the 90’s cell phones rapidly shrunk to pocket size and you were pretty fly if you were sporting a flip phone. Then in early 2000, phones rapidly decreased in size with the Nokia 7280 being nicknamed the “lipstick” phone or the “toy for the rich”. In 2007, Apple took a revolutionary bite into the mobile market with the first iPhone. The iPhone was slick, elite, and versatile offering an experience that no other mobile phone could offer.

It’s Time To Go Mobile – Google Says So by Livvy

Is your website mobile optimisedYou review your online sales for the month and realise the month of April is down compared to normal. You wonder what has changed this month and check to see where the sales have come from. Yes, the numbers from word of mouth are as expected, advertising looks about normal as well… and then you notice there is a significant drop in those who say they found you through Google. You wonder, “Why is that?” – because you haven’t done anything radically differently this month.

A $25 Genuine Ferrari!? by Livvy

A 25 dollar FerrariI have a confession. I’ve wanted a Ferrari my whole adult life, I mean who wouldn’t? The marque, the styling, the passion, and overall performance… If you’re a petrolhead like I am, then a Ferrari is basically the same as a religious relic. Unless you’re Australian then it’s a Maloo or the Toohey’s museum. So imagine my surprise when I discovered one online for $25. I couldn’t help myself. When it arrived, I was rapt! However since enjoying all it has to offer I have formed some mixed opinions on the brand.

We're proud to help educate and inspire today's youth about future options in the ICT Industry. We recently upgraded our sponsorship of ICT-Connect to Premier status; one of only three top level sponsors. We believe this clearly demonstrates our commitment to the industry.
