Australian ISP iiNet has teamed up with Starbucks to offer its customers free Wi-Fi access at a selection of the coffee chain's stores.

iiNet says that its customers will be able to log on to the chain's hotspots by using their iiNet username and password details; each user will get a 100MB data allowance every month.

The deal has been made with 20 Starbucks stores along the east coast of Australia, including eight stores in New South Wales, seven in Queensland and five in Victoria. The list of participating stores can be found here. Users in other states can use iiNet's Wi-Fi locator tool to find a free non-Starbucks hotspot in their area.

It's not the first time iiNet has struck a deal offering free Wi-Fi to its users. In August 2007 the company announced that its users would be able to log in to Tomizone Wi-Fi hotspots anywhere in the world for free, also with a 100MB data allowance per month. Information on how to connect and where to find Tomizone hotspots can be found here.

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.
