Star Trek Online

The open beta of Star Trek Online begins today and runs through January 26th, a week before the February 2nd launch date.

Though the game has been in closed beta since October 22nd, today marks the first opportunity for players who pre-ordered the game to download the client and take advantage of the beta codes included with their purchase. The game begins nearly three decades after the events portrayed in the Star Trek: Nemesis movie, and players may join either the Klingon Empire or the Federation to battle for glory in consensual ship-to-ship PVP dogfights, though there will also be opportunities for exploration and away missions on hostile planets.

Looking for a beta code but unwilling to shell out for the actual pre-order? Registered users of the official site will randomly receive beta codes via email, while the fan sites below are giving out batches of free keys from now until the end of January:

* Massively

* Ten Ton Hammer

* FilePlanet

* Zam

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.
