Hassle the Hoff online

David Hasslehoff launches social networking site

A new social networking site has gained 6,000 members since its launch last month. But before you get ready to kill your Facebook and MySpace profiles in favour of the next big thing in social networking, it's worth noting who's behind the venture.

It's none other than 80s Speedo-wearing TV star David 'The Hoff' Hasslehoff. Yup, the US actor most famous for his roles in 80s TV shows Knight Rider and Baywatch has launched Hoff Space.

According to The Hoff, the Official Hasselhoff social network was set up in a bid to stop people impersonating him on MySpace and Facebook.

"A lot of people were coming in posing as me or my children and I had to stop it, so I opened my own. It is going to be fun and I can regulate it," he told BBC Radio 1.

Hoff Space users can message each other, keep up to date on the Hoff's movements through his blog and even upload pics and videos of their idol including Dave's monumental performance of 'I've Been Looking for Freedom' after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Although if I were you, I wouldn't give up on Facebook just yet.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
