Part one of 'A Lonely Place for Dying' proves to be a massive hit with downloaders.

The Cold-war spy thriller A Lonely Place for Dying has now recorded over one million official downloads on BitTorrent via the VODO distribution network. TorrentFreak reports that the movie, which was made with a $200,000 budget, has even surpassed Source Code and X-Men: First Class in popularity over the last two-week period.

The popular download is only part one of what will be a five-part serialised release. The makers hope that donations from downloaders will help them fund a theatrical release. VODO has previously helped promote and distribute the independent Australian film The Tunnel, a horror/thriller that was set in Sydney and shot with an estimated budget of $135,000.

Popular BitTorrent client uTorrent has also helped play a role in the distribution of these independent films as it offers users the chance to download featured films as part of the program's installation. uTorrent also allows you to install the VODO app, which provides an easy way to then download all of the service's independent BitTorrent releases.

You can find a full list of releases on VODO's Web site.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

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.
