Interactive FIFA World Cup qualifiers come to Sydney

Sydney will play host to the world's largest football gaming tournament next month

Gamers and sports fans unite! Sydney’s Royal Easter show will launch one of 10 worldwide qualifying events for the 2010 Interactive FIFA World Cup.

Kicking-off (virtually, of course) on 1 April and running to 14 April, the FIFA, EA SPORTS, and PlayStation sponsored event will see football and gaming fanatics try their hand at representing Australia in the Grand Final. Sixty four finalists will be whittled down to one winner who will compete in Barcelona on 1 May.

A free trip to Spain is not all that is on offer for the Australian qualifier. If they work their way through Barcelona to become the interactive champion of the world, a cheque of US$20,000 will be sent their way, along with an invitation to attend the FIFA World Player Gala.

There a number of spots still available before the heats begin; so for those of you who think you can take a virtual 45-yard free kick better than Cristiano Ronaldo, register at www.FIFA.EASPORTS.com/footballexperience. If that sounds like too much work, there will be a few walk-up positions available on the day.

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.
