Vodafone's Visual Voicemail service

Vodafone Australia has become the first mobile network in Australia to offer the visual voicemail feature for customers with an iPhone 3G.

The Visual Voicemail application allows iPhone 3G users to see who has left a voicemail message and the time they left it, eliminating the need to listen to messages in the order that they were left. Vodafone users can save up to 20 Visual Voicemail messages on their iPhone.

The feature was previously not available in Australia, despite being a core feature of the original iPhone when it was first launched in the US in 2007.

"Vodafone is thrilled to be launching this Australian-first application to Vodafone iPhone 3G customers," said Edward Goff of Vodafone Australia. "Our iPhone 3G customers will no longer have to trawl through all their voicemails to get to the ones they want to hear."

All current Vodafone iPhone 3G customers will have access to the Visual Voicemail application by Friday 29 May. Vodafone will progressively notify iPhone customers via text messages alerting them to the new service.

Activating the Visual Voicemail feature is done by syncing your iPhone, checking for updates in iTunes and then turning the phone off and on. Tapping the voicemail button in the contacts menu should then open the Visual Voicemail screen. Messages are displayed in a simple list format and are sorted by date and time. Touching a message will play it back, and users can even skip messages completely.

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
