Manage all your social networks under one roof

Free service Seesmic Web makes it a snap to access your Facebook, Twitter, and other accounts on a single page

As you learned in last week's write-up of Meebo, the browser-based instant messaging service, I love apps that can live on the Web instead of having to clutter up my PC.

For example, suppose I want to manage all my social networks -- Facebook, Twitter, etc. -- from a single, time-saving portal. There's a program called Seesmic Desktop that lets me do just that -- but it's one more thing to install, one more program consuming precious system resources.

That's why I prefer Seesmic Web, an online version of the tool. Nothing to download, nothing to install, just one-click access to my social networks. It's free, easy, and fabulous.

Seesmic Web supports Facebook, FourSquare, Google Buzz, LinkedIn, PingFM, and Twitter. All you do is sign into one or more of these accounts and presto, you can read, respond to, and create status messages. Everything is organized into columns you can add, remove, and/or resize as needed. I especially like the way you can toggle between black and white backgrounds.

The service was recently updated to include a couple business-friendly features, including scheduled status updates, support for unlimited Facebook accounts, and integration with the Klout influencer-ranking service.

All told, Seesmic Web is pretty slick, and a worthwhile destination for anyone tired of bopping back and forth between Facebook, Twitter, and the like.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

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.
