Google launches online magazine, Think Quarterly

The first issue is all about data and finding useful nuggets among a mass of information

Google has launched its own quarterly online magazine, Think Quarterly, out of its operations in the U.K. and Ireland, saying that "in a world of accelerating change, we all need to take time to reflect."

The first issue of Think Quarterly is already freely available online and is dedicated to data, including data obesity, data impotence, data overload and open data.

"Think Quarterly is a unique communications tool that brings together some of the world's leading minds to discuss the big issues facing businesses today," the magazine says on its Twitter bio.

The magazine's Twitter feed says it launched on March 21, though there is no mention of the magazine on Google's blog, Twitter feed, Facebook page or newsroom.

In a note on the magazine's website, the managing director of Google's U.K. & Ireland Operations, Matt Brittin, said, "Think Quarterly is a breathing space in a busy world. It's a place to take time out and consider what's happening and why it matters."

The reason the company dedicated the first issue to data was to figure out "amongst a morass of information, how can you find the magic metrics that will help transform your business? We hope that you find inspiration, insights, and more, in Think Quarterly," he said.

The next issue of Think Quarterly will be available in May, followed by the third issue in July and the fourth 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.
