SlideShare revamps home page to make it more engaging

Users will be able to like, share and save presentations right from the home page

SlideShare, a site for posting, sharing, viewing, rating and commenting primarily on business presentations, has given a makeover to its homepage.

The changes, which include larger, more visually appealing thumbnails of presentations' title pages, are designed to increase people's usage and engagement on the site.

"We want to make it easy to discover, fun to share and beautiful to present on SlideShare," said John Loof, an associate product manager at SlideShare.

Other new home page features include the ability for users to like, save and share presentations by clicking on their title page thumbnail images. A small photo of the presentation's author will also be part of the thumbnail title page.

SlideShare's home page features content picked by its editorial staff, and now those hand-selected presentations will be organized by topics including business, entertainment, technology, education and careers.

SlideShare also announced on Thursday that its members have now uploaded more than 15 million presentations and other documents to the site, and that the interface is now available in Portuguese.

Loof said the team is working on further integrating SlideShare with LinkedIn, which acquired SlideShare in March of 2012. It's currently possible for SlideShare members to log into the site using their LinkedIn account credentials.

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.
