ShareWatch

Before you can see any figures, you have to nominate which stocks you want to watch. The dialogue box used for this purpose is simple enough, but assumes that you already know the listed name of the company in which you are interested. You can also select a number of market indices, such as All Ordinaries or Small Industrials.

By default, the spreadsheet-like main window shows the information you would see in a newspaper market report, though you can change the order in which items are displayed.

Price updates can be triggered manually, or you can choose a time period for automatic updates. However, the Stock Exchange won't release real-time information to the public so the best we can get is prices that have been delayed by 20 minutes.

The information can be treated in different ways. You can set up alerts that will warn you if specific conditions occur, such as a stock exceeding a set price.

You can click on any stock in the list and drag it onto the Windows desktop, where it will sit as a neat little box letting you know the current price. Or if you're a real market junkie, you can choose the scrolling tickertape display for the top of your screen.

The market only opens during business hours, and many people have full-time Internet connections at work, so it makes sense that each ShareWatch licence covers two machines.

Just be sure your boss doesn't catch you playing the stock market.

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.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
