Final Fantasy XIV beta application site goes live

Prologue video for A Realm Reborn also released

Players keen to get an early taste of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV reboot, subtitled A Realm Reborn, can do so by signing up for the beta.

Following the conclusion of alpha tests in December, The Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn beta test application site has gone live, with beta testing expected to take place in mid-February.

Any Australian gamers wanting to try the game before its release can sign up at the European portal.

A Realm Reborn is a retooling of Final Fantasy XIV following the lacklustre response the publisher received to the original release of the game in 2010, which led to a switch in development teams.

The new game aims to address the criticisms of the earlier release by making use of a new engine, better server structures, reworked gameplay, and streamlined interface.

As well as applying for the beta test, players can see how the game is shaping up with a newly released prologue video.

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.

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.
