CORRECTION AND WARNING: Here's How Upgrader-Bulk Up Your PC's RAM

Published in Australian PC World, December 2001, page 132.

The December issue of Australian PC World stated in relation to an article on increasing the RAM of your computer ("Bulk up your PC's RAM"), under the subheading Ground Yourself, to "loosen the face-plate of an AC outlet and clip the wrist strap to it".

The editor advises that UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should any person other than a qualified and licensed electrical technician ever loosen the face-plate or otherwise tamper or interfere with an AC outlet or other electricity supply. AC outlets carry live current and unqualified or unlicensed persons could expose themselves to injury or death, by electrocution by AC outlets or other electricity sources. You should contact your electrician or computer technician should you have any doubts as to the use of the wrist strap referred to above or the installation of any component into your computer.

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

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.
