Get creative and get burning

Got a burning desire to back-up data or create your own CDs? Creative Pacific thinks it has just the thing for you - a new $649 internal CD burner from Creative Technology.

The CD-RW Blaster 2224 writes at 2x (that's up to 300Kbps), and reads CD-ROM data at 24x. That holds an advantage over other drives on the market, says Kamil Gurgen, marketing manager for Creative Pacific: "The current generation of CD burners have a very slow read speed making them unproductive for general purpose use, thus requiring the customer to have a second high speed CD-ROM just for data reading."

Multimedia CDs including photos, video and music, can be created with the Blaster 2224 utilising Easy CD Creator software, which is included with the drive. Additionally, DirectCD software, which is also bundled, allows for users to drag-and-drop files onto a CD as easily as with a floppy disk, the company says.

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.
