Tacos-for-life for a PlayStation 3

The Taco Bell fastfood chain is offering a "lifetime" of tacos in exchange for a PlayStation 3

People have pushed and shoved for it, queued overnight in the rain for it and its been sold online at great profit. Now the Taco Bell fastfood chain is offering a "lifetime" of tacos in exchange for a PlayStation 3.

The company, which is a division of Yum! Brands, said it will give US$12,500 in "Taco Bell Bucks" to anyone who will donate a PlayStation 3. The console will then be given by Taco Ball and its Taco Bell Foundation to the Stanton, California, teen center of the Boys & Girls Club.

The Taco Bell Bucks can be redeemed at participating Taco Bell locations for food. Just how long it would take to work through the credit depends on your appetite but at less than a dollar for a "seasoned beef crunchy taco" it's enough to keep you snacking for a long time.

Anyone interested in taking up the company's offer should send their name, e-mail address and phone number to tacobellnews@tacobell.com. The Taco Bell Bucks will be given to the first person to respond, based on the time the e-mail is received, and send in their PlayStation 3. The deadline is 6 p.m. on Dec. 1. The company didn't specify which of the two versions of the PlayStation 3 console is preferred.

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.

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.
