AAP Puts the Whole Lot Online

Targeted at corporate and business customers, NewsCentre comprises three separate information products, NewsCast, NewsClip and eClips, all deliverable electronically via e-mail or intranet.

NewsCast is an online news service providing news and text feeds from AAP and other newspapers including the Australian Financial Review, The Australian, The Sydney Morning Herald, The West Australian, Herald Sun, Courier Mail and Canberra Times. Users can access specialised news throughout the day, receive complementary news alerts and search for archived information.

NewsClip provides users with online access to the full text of stories appearing in the major newspapers. Paul Reid, AAP's business manager for NewsCentre, said users are able to customise the service to provide news relating to their company, competitors and clients. Additionally, users are able to share the information easily via standard Internet browsers or e-mail.eClips is a complementary service to NewsClip, which allows users to actually view an image of the article as it appears in print. Reid said eClips is similar to a traditional clipping service but allows clippings to be delivered electronically in PDF format.

According to Reid, NewsClip and eClips represent AAP's first moves in the media monitoring market. In addition to news, users can also access other information including stocks and company details using an ASIC (Australian Securities and Investments Commission) database, Reid said.

According to AAP, all services are subscription based with the pricing models based on AAP's current packages. NewsCast and NewsClip are charged on a basic monthly fee while eClips charges are based on usage, officials said.

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!

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.
