DVD Collector

For aficionados of movies on DVD, the ability to manage large collections easily is a must. Enter DVD Collector, a donation-ware program created by Australian developer CrunchyMedia, which aims to do just that with its intuitive and well designed interface.

An online database from www.michaeldvd.com.au allows you automatically to download information pertaining to each of your discs, and is a great time-saver. Manual entries can also be made if your DVD isn’t in the list (as many overseas titles are not), and you can then contribute that information to the online database.

A wealth of information is provided for the discs, including technical specifications and cast details. Cover images for DVDs are not stored on the online database (See here for a screenshot). There is support for images, though; all you have to do is specify in which folder they are contained and make sure you assign the correct one (front and back) for each disc. You can even track the number of times you watch each disc, and create good-looking HTML reports (with or without frames) via the import/export function.

All up, a nicely-featured, great little program for the seasoned or even novice DVD collector, which is easy to use and free for download.

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.

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

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.
