Time to get a few more Australians on the show….so we got in touch with Des and said..”Des..how about it??”…and he gave us the thumbs up.

We talk about Media Centers and are they a central device or a peripheral device, how he got into computers and marketing from doing economics at university, his time at NCR in Japan, Australia and the US, his work with web based travel systems and Galileo, his thoughts on blogs, how they deal with channel partners at ACER, the NOFOLLOW tag, the ACER model of business and how it differs from the Dell model, what are ACER’s goals in Australia, his thoughts on TabletPC’s, podcasting and finally we briefly touch on scuba diving…yep…we cover a lot… 🙂

  1. Love the show, guys! You were speaking of gutting an old radio console for modern components. I’ve done this a couple of times, and found it to be quite easy – usually there’s plenty of room, since older components were so huge. Last year I cleaned out an old wardrobe, a family heirloom. It worked well because half of it was storage for DVDs, the other half was adjustable shelves. Pop a couple of holes in the back for wires, and no worries. You can even put in a device to forward the infrared signals to the components inside.

    I can’t send you a photo of the setup, unfortunately. When we got our new monster TV we didn’t need this anymore, so now it’s a storage cabinet. Great grandpa would be so proud!
