Metrowerks CodeWarrior 8

Metrowerks latest release of its acclaimed CodeWarrior Develop­­ment Tools provides enhance­ments to the C/C++/Java programming environment.

With the new code completion feature, you can write complex pieces of code quickly with fast access to various functions and symbols.

Customisable workspaces and docking windows let you create an environ­ment where you feel most comfortable. A very useful multimedia tutorial explains how to get the best use out of these tools.

A big selling point for CodeWarrior 8 is that users can develop for Windows and Mac platforms using the same development environment. There are also CodeWarrior 8 implementations for Linux, Palm OS, and Motorola platforms.

CodeWarrior’s ability to produce compact and efficient code is thanks to its industry-leading ANSI/ISO/C/C++ compiler. Other impressive features include the customisable text editor, inter­active debugger and sophisticated project manager (See here for a screenshot example).

Students new to programming can benefit from a simplified academic Code­Warrior product that is easier to use, and take advantage of a significantly cheaper price. Check out the Metrowerks site for more information on academic pricing.

CodeWarrior positives include the ability to develop simultaneously for Mac and Windows environments even with only the Windows version, and the handy code completion feature. Drawbacks include the fact that it’s really only suited for ex­peri­enced programmers.

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.

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.
