Digital FireworX explodes onto OS X scene

Digital FireworX for Mac OS X has been released by SkyRockets Multimedia. It's a computer generated fireworks simulation that uses real digitized fireworks sounds for enhanced realism.

Digital FireworX are fully rendered 3D particle animations created to simulate fireworks. Each firework piece is self-contained in its own file, so you can think of it as a plug-in.

"With Digital FireworX you can fire off fountains, gerbs, cones, firecrackers, mortars and rockets, loaded directly from the virtual 'FireworX Stand'," said Michael Briscoe of Digital FireworX. "You can also import your own background art, or photo and MP3 music files. You can drag and drop FireworX to the staging area and sync them to time, or music, to create your own FireworX shows."

The fireworks simulator is expandable, so new FireworX modules are on the way. Digital FireworX has been completely rewritten from the ground up to take advantage of Mac OS X, Brisco said.

Digital FireworX is Shareware. You may download and try it out for free. Registration is US$15 and will get you a link to download the entire Digital FireworX package that includes 36 FireworX modules in all and access to new modules as they become available.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
