Easily access your files remotely with myDitto

Dane-Elec offer a simple plug-and-play way to access home or office servers remotely.

Ever wanted a simple way to access your home or office servers remotely? If yes, then look no further than the new myDitto system from Dane-Elec. The consumer electronics manufacturer unveiled the novel myDitto cloud-storage solution yesterday, and the anticipated device has already been crowned the winner of one of this year's CES Innovations Awards.

The straightforward device allows it's users to access a myDitto server remotely just by inserting the included USB key into any Windows, Mac or Linux computer. Dane-Elec has claimed that even a novice computer user could be set-up and connected in less than five minutes. Once connected the user will be able to access any of their myDitto server files remotely, with no configuration required at all.

Dane-Elec also specified that the myDitto USB key is secure, not only due to the password and authentication in place, but also due to the myDitto software not being stored on users local computers, removing any potential security threats.

If the subscription-free myDitto system is as simple as Dane-Elec is claiming, then this would seem like an ideal way for the not so tech-savvy to be introduced to networking. For those already clued up, Dane-Elec seem to be offering a super simple plug-and-play way to access your files, fast.

The product, which is being demoed at this week's Consumer Electronics Show is due to hit stores this March for $249. Your dollars will get you the 1TB myDitto server, and in addition two myDitto USB keys.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
