Saints Row 2: New screens

Saints Row 2 continues the gun-toting, car-crashing, mean-street-walking character of the original game, but now in a city with even more cars and guns to enjoy.

Yamaha CD-S2000

In a similar vein to the Yamaha A-S2000 integrated amplifier, the CD-S2000 is a CD and Super Audio CD (SACD) player that offers up-to-date technology in a retro casing. It’s a huge step up in audio quality from the CD players used in home-theatre sys...

Yamaha A-S2000

Yamaha's A-S2000 dedicated amplifier is a jack of all trades, with balanced and unbalanced inputs, A/B speaker outputs as well as a dedicated headphone circuit. It manages to deliver a ridiculously large amount of power and no evident distortion. Bui...

SBK: Superbike World Championship

Designed for the Xbox 360 by Conspiracy Entertainment, SBK: Superbike World Championship is a motorsports race along challenging tracks. The game features super-realistic close-up shots of racing hardware and riders for a more immersive experience. I...

JohnBlue JB4 Mk2

We loved JohnBlue’s miniature JB3 monitors, so we were looking forward to experiencing the JB4 Mk2s. Thankfully the same ethos was followed -- high quality construction with simple components, and no complicated crossovers or dampening -- and the end...

Spore released early in Australia

Will Wright’s sandbox epic Spore was officially released yesterday, with Australia being the first country able to download or purchase the game over the counter.

AAD M Series

AAD's M Series home theatre system is relatively small by home entertainment standards, but it's still able to deliver crisp and measured sound for movies and occasional music listening.

Sony DSC-H50

Sony’s DSC-H50 is a camera with a wealth of useful features, accessories and quirks. The price you pay for this, however, is a somewhat bulky body and a convoluted user interface.

Fujifilm Finepix Z20fd

Fujifilm’s stylish Finepix Z20fd offers an exceedingly simple control method designed for amateur camera users. The images it captures will please happy-snappers, but those more interested in image quality might be a little disheartened.

Sharp CD-MPX880H

In a market filled with near-identical mini hi-fi units, there are always a few models that stand out from the crowd. The CD-MPX880H is one of these, but not necessarily for the right reasons. It can hold multiple CDs and cassettes but if you’re look...

Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia

Made for Nintendo’s handheld DS gaming system, Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia is a unique action-adventure game that uses the touch-screen capabilities of the DS to control an item called the Capture Styler in-game.

Apple iTunes Movies

The Australian iTunes Store has recently been updated to include a variety of movie downloads, a service previously only available in the US, the UK and Canada.

New images of Halo Wars

More imagery has surfaced of Halo Wars — the latest game in a line of blockbusters started by the massively popular Halo on the original Xbox. The real-time strategy game will feature human and Covenant forces and is set 20 years before the ori...

New glimpse of Diablo 3

It’s been a long time coming, but the wait is… not over yet. Set to be released some time in 2009, Diablo 3 is the sequel to the massively popular Diablo and Diablo 2 games on the PC platform. Stunning graphics set the game apart from its ancestors; ...

Axiom Audio Audiobytes

Axiom Audio’s Audiobytes speaker system, which is aimed at PC users, is a noticeable step-up from even premium mainstream models like Logitech’s Z-Cinema.

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.

Andrew Grant

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

Aysha Strobbe

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

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!

Mark Escubio

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.
