How to find free Wi-Fi Internet access in Australia

Use Google Maps to find free Internet access in Sydney, Canberra, Byron Bay, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Adelaide, Melbourne and more

Although the price of mobile broadband in Australia is coming down rapidly, it's still not affordable for everyone. And what about if you have a prepaid wireless broadband account and haven't topped it up yet? An easy solution for those of you in Sydney is the Wi-Fi hot spot Google Map below that displays paid and free Wi-Fi hotspots. Know a hot spot that's been missed? Just add it to the map. The map is the product of the Wifi-in-australia.com project; kudos to them for creating such a useful resource. The site also offers free Wi-Fi maps for Canberra, Byron Bay, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Adelaide, Melbourne and more.

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.
