Tech investors hold their breath

However, offering investors some promise, the ASX opened on a positive note this morning with slight rises in many of the tech stocks that suffered yesterday and dragged the new ASX All Ordinaries down 25.7 points to 3137.8 at last night's close.

BMC Media, which fell more than 30 per cent to $2.77 yesterday, was up to $2.85, while web advertising counterpart eMitch was up 10 cents to $1.34 in early morning trade today.

Malcolm Turnbull's ecommerce investment vehicle FTR also rose this morning to $0.83, after reaching a high of around $1.15 last week. Yesterday the company announced it had signed a deal to supply its digital court recording system to 232 courts throughout the province of Alberta in Canada.

Search engine LookSmart was up this morning, to $2.98, as was Kerry Packer's ecorp, up $0.17 to $4.32. Yesterday Packer saw $1.22 billion wiped off ecorp, Publishing and Broadcasting and the FXF Trust.

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.

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.
