With a tip of the cap to the Flip Mino HD and Creative Vado HD, Kodak's popular Z-series pocket camcorder is also going high-definition.

Announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the pocketable Kodak Zx1 digital video camera records 720p high-def video at two frame rates (30 fps and 60 fps) and includes ArcSoft Media Impressions software on the camera for editing clips and easy YouTube uploads. The pocket camcorder has a slot compatible with both SD and SDHC cards, allowing owners to add up to 32GB of storage capacity. Kodak says the Zx1 can hold 20 minutes of 30 fps footage per gigabyte of storage.

The Zx1 will cost US$150 and will be available in the spring in a range of colors (black, blue, red, pink, and yellow).

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.
