A war of gamers around the globe is about to spark with Game & Game World Championship 2009 Europe Finals.

On 14 July, Korea Creative Content Agency announced first regional finals of 'Game & Game World Championship 2009' (GNGWC2009) will be held in Leipzig, Germany on the upcoming July 31.

In GNGWC2009 Europe Finals, European contestants who came out victorious from the online preliminaries will go head-to-head to earn the rights to represent Europe at the GNGWC2009 World Finals in South Korea. The winners of the Europe Finals will be qualified to participate in the World Finals and receive a round-trip ticket and paid hotel.

Three categories of the competition are Silk Road Online, Shot Online, and Atlantika. The winner and the runner-up for each game title will proceed to the World Finals, and a total of 24 gamers will be invited to South Korea.

First, second, and third places of each title will receive an award of $5,000, $3,000, and $1,000, respectively; a total prize of US$ 27,000 will be awarded to the top players of three categories.

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.

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.
