Creative previews Nomad MP3 player

Creative Technology today previewed its first MP3 player -- the Nomad -- to the Australian IT press in Sydney.

Due to be released in June, the Nomad will ship with 32MB of on-board memory with an optional 32MB flash memory card. Differing from other MP3 players on the market, the Nomad will include an FM radio tuner plus a built-in microphone that will allow users to record up to four hours of voice recordings, said a company spokesman at the launch.

The Nomad is closer to the size of a small radio tuner than a walkman, and features a sleek lightweight magnesium case. A docking station for the Nomad is provided for uploading and downloading files, while also recharging the player's AAA batteries. Also bundled with the Nomad is the Creative Digital Audio Center, a software program that allows users to "rip" (copy) songs from CDs into MP3 format.

A range of accessories including a car adaptor kit will be available for the Nomad also, said a spokesman.

The 32MB Nomad will be priced at $499 whilst the 64MB version will cost $599.

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.
