Wine Planet

www.wineplanet.com.au

For me, nothing can beat the delight of sampling an exquisite wine (although more often than not, the succulent blend escapes me when I have to purchase a bottle of plonk myself). And invariably I return to tried and true favourites. If you are keen to start stocking up your cellar, or would like to have a couple of bottles of white on hand for summer dining, then turn your mouse to the ever expanding Wine Planet.

Anyone who has tired of making snap decisions on the way to dinner will appreciate this site's extensive range of wines (over 7000 local and imported) and all are available for perusal at your convenience - as opposed to rummaging at the local liquor outlet.

Despite its name the site is expanding in early 2000 to include nearly 500 spirits and liqueurs, and gourmet food products, such as fresh roasted coffee and olive oils. Books and magazines covering food, spirits, wine and related topics, as well as a gift centre offering hampers, gift certificates and gift suggestions, are additions to the site.

And there is also plenty of info to hand so the ingredients are put to good use. Maggie Beer (her most recent book is the bestselling Tuscan Cookbook) will be contributing to the Wine Planet Kitchen with a monthly column, recipes, and food commentary. The site is also set to launch WineTV, a weekly streaming video and wine tasting by editor Max Allen. Monthly programs highlight various winemakers and regions.

Users can also personalise the site with the My Planet service, storing their online order history, tracking existing orders, and profiling their own tastes. - Amanda Conroy

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.
