CityTime

Now, though, local Palm software developer Darren Beck has put an end to the dilemma of arriving before we leave, or phoning at 3 a.m. instead of 3 p.m. CityTime is a feature-loaded Palm utility that has literally taken the world by storm, and is now built into the Palm-compatible Handspring Visor.

The new colour version is superb. On the Palm IIIc, the main screen features a full-colour world map, overshadowed by a real-time "dark-zone". Touch the map with your stylus, and the details of the nearest city pop up on the screen. As I write, dawn is breaking in Riyadh, while it's 12.46 p.m. in Sydney. Your choice of four other city times can be displayed across the bottom of the screen - right now it's 6.46 p.m. in Vancouver, and not a good time to call my friends in Cape Town, where it's 3.46 a.m.

Beneath the neat graphic display - which almost makes time zones make sense - CityTime has real depth. The Sunrise/Sunset screen, for example, offers Civil, Nautical and Astronomical options. Details can be generated for any city, on any date. Try it - 17 July in Sydney should see the sun rise at 6.59 a.m. and set at 5.02 p.m., with a total of 10 hours and three minutes of daylight. Brisbane, on the other hand, should enjoy an extra 34 minutes of sunshine - beautiful one day, perfect the next. Rounding out the package, a handy time calculator lets you enter a time and instantly find the equivalent in any of the 108 preconfigured cities. Naturally, you can add your own.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
