SurfSaver Pro 2 and Web Space Professional

AskSam's $US30 SurfSaver Pro 2 and Giage's $US179 WebSpace Professional go beyond browser bookmark tools to help you save and organise information - in very different ways.

SurfSaver Pro 2 adds special search and page-save features to Internet Explorer that permit you to store material in a virtual file cabinet. You can share files with users on a network, and assign keywords, notes and other properties to pages - useful for subsequent searches. Links on saved pages remain live; when you click one, SurfSaver checks for a local copy. A free desktop-only version of the program displays ads while saving content.

WebSpace Profes-sional incorporates Internet Explorer technology into multi-panel WebSpaces (virtual file cabinets that differ from SurfSaver's). You can collect information from such disparate sources as the Web (while you surf), e-mail, and your contact database. And you can view Outlook 2000 e-mail and contacts from within WebSpace.

While SurfSaver and WebSpace handle many complex Web formats, both stumble on JavaScript. WebSpace does recognise more types of files, but it lacks an internal search engine - which is a feature of SurfSaver.

If you need instant archiving of basic Web pages, SurfSaver Pro 2 qualifies as an excellent solution. WebSpace Professional, on the other hand, is worth a look only if you can take advantage of its Outlook integration; otherwise, you'll find similar help for less money elsewhere.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

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.
