Tech investors hold their breath

Malcolm Turnbull's ecommerce investment vehicle FTR also rose this morning to $0.83, after reaching a high of around $1.15 last week. Yesterday the company announced it had signed a deal to supply its digital court recording system to 232 courts throughout the province of Alberta in Canada.

Search engine LookSmart was up this morning, to $2.98, as was Kerry Packer's ecorp, up $0.17 to $4.32. Yesterday Packer saw $1.22 billion wiped off ecorp, Publishing and Broadcasting and the FXF Trust.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

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!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

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.
