Ninemsn grabs a piece of Ozbuy.com

Ninemsn has announced it is to take equity in one of its ecommerce tenants, etailer ozbuy.com.

Discussing the equity agreement with ninemsn, Michael Glezerson, managing director and co-founder of ozbuy.com, claimed it is a strategic alliance with benefits other than real estate on its website.

The size of ninemsn's stake is undisclosed but it is described by Glezerson as "substantial".

According to Glezerson, there have been a number of companies looking for equity in the operation, but while there was no real need for additional funds, "it helps to have another substantial business partner".

Glezerson denied there was any pressure to hand over equity in the technology store to retain a presence on the site, although he added that the alliance with ninemsn will afford further promotional opportunities. And there was no suggestion of exclusivity about the arrangement.

"They have actively encouraged us to be on other sites," Glezerson said. He claimed that sales have been doubling every month since the site launched in October.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
