Cons

Bottom Line

Motorola's Razrwire is definitely a step in the right direction, and for some people may be the ideal solution to ugly, awkward Bluetooth headsets.

Would you buy this?

We like the technology, but we'd be the first to admit that wireless Bluetooth headsets do not represent the height of sartorial elegance, particularly the ones that sport flashing blue lights. Happily, mobile phone giant Motorola has teamed up with Oakley sunglasses in an attempt to solve the eternal problem of looking daft while wearing a Bluetooth mobile receiver in public. Whether they've succeeded or not is, of course, a matter of taste, but the RazrWire is surely a step in the right direction.

Of course, it's not just about style. Attached to the arm of some rather sporty-looking Oakley sunglasses, the headset incorporates Bluetooth 1.2 technology (backward compatible with 1.1) that functions at a distance of up to 10 meters from a Bluetooth-enabled cellphone and provides as much as six hours of talk time or 100 hours standby.

According to Motorola, the RazrWire is aimed particularly at people on the go such as cyclists, skateboarders, golfers and rock climbers, though we feel if there's any time that it's inappropriate to be answering your phone, it's when you're hanging over the edge of a cliff.

The RazrWire is not Motorola's first foray into the world of fashion - the company has previously unveiled a snowboarding jacket and headgear produced with sporting goods manufacturer Burton.

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.

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.
