Inprise serves up a Linux feast

Inprise says the product is based on open industry standards, and "delivers the ideal foundation for users to expand their presence on the web and provides them with the technology needed to support enterprise-strength internet business applications".

The release is part of the company's ongoing efforts to make Linux versions of its products. The company claims that it allows developers to "leverage" the Java programming and the Linux operating system to "deploy powerful Internet business applications".

As part of Inprise/Borland's ongoing commitment to the Linux platform, the company recently announced:

* InterBase 6, the relational SQL database which is currently in beta, to be open-sourced for Linux and other platforms.

* JBuilder 3 Foundation, the award-winning FREE Java rapid application development (RAD) environment for Linux, Solaris and Windows.

* Kylix (Delphi/C++ Builder for Linux), the first native RAD environment for the Linux platform, which is scheduled to be available in the middle of the year.

* Borland's online Linux survey last July, which attracted over 24,000 respondents, and found a significant rise in the number of users developing on the Linux platform.

* A new Linux community, on the company's developer community website (http://community.borland.com).

The company said its Inprise Application Server was the first application server to fully integrate the benefits of EJB and CORBA. A free 60-day evaluation version of Inprise Application Server 4.0 is available for download at http://www.borland.com.au/linux.

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.

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.
