Bernard D&G TurboDemo 6.0 Professional

At first glance, it's easy to mistake TurboDemo for a slightly advanced version of screen-grabbing software; however, TurboDemo is much, much more than this.

Once you've set the size of your target screen and enabled hotkeys to pause or transfer screenshots, the program monitors all your on-screen movements and actions to create highly sophisticated demos without the need for any programming.

These actions can be played immediately as a seamless video or edited. If you are using the Professional release, you can customise your demo with quizzes - preventing users from moving to the next screen, for example, until they complete a section of a tutorial.

New to version 6.0 is the ability to launch the program across a network with no installation, and demos can now be recorded under Linux and Mac OS as well as Windows. The finished movie has always been platform-independent.

You can now also create high-quality Flash demos, and a new format, ASF (Advanced Streaming Format), is supported for Media Player 9.0 users. Nor are you restricted to output. As well as Flash and ASF, finished demos can be exported as Java or a standalone EXE file.

Verdict The program is ridiculously easy to use and will be helpful for anyone creating instructional software. This is a great program for a specific use. It's very expensive, though, and what's more, the US prices given are a special offer - they should still be in place by the time you read this, but recommended prices are 20-25 per cent higher.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
