Telstra offers audio Facebook status updates with Blurtl

Blurtl Facebook service provides 30 second audio status updates

Telstra has launched a new Facebook service called Blurtl that lets you record 30 second audio clips to post as a status update, or as a message on a friend's wall.

You'll first need to give permission for Telstra's Blurtl app to access your Facebook page, and then you can call 0458 BLURTL (0458 258 785) from any Australian mobile phone to record your message. Once you have finished recording, the Blurtl audio message will appear as your Facebook status.

The Blurtl service itself is free to use on Facebook, though a phone call to 0458 BLURTL to record your message is charged at the standard call rate.

"Whether recording your baby's first words to share with all your Facebook friends, leaving a personalised, audio Happy Birthday wall post to your mate in London, or updating your status with a quirky voice message that you're engaged, Blurtl will add an extra dose of personality to Aussie Facebook pages," said Telstra Consumer Executive Director Rebekah O'Flaherty.

To use Blurtl, visit Telstra's Facebook page.

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.
