SwissBit 128MB Swissmemory USB Victorianox
- Great design, great idea, works well.
- The tools seem like a novelty
Fans of Swiss Army products will love this one and with good reason. Solid design and innovation make it well worth adding to your key ring.
Price$ 68.00 (AUD)
The Boy Scout within us all longed for a Swiss army knife when we were kids, but the children of today are far more tech-savvy and the simple knife has undergone a modern overhaul. That wide eyed little kid can now join techno-geek big kids with the new Swissmemory USB Victorinox from Swissbit.
This model comes equipped with a 128MB USB flash drive which works flawlessly and is easily extended from the unit. It is compatible with both Windows and Mac OS and appears as a removable drive, which means just plug it in and it's ready for use. 128MB is plenty of storage space for the transfer of smaller files between two computers but wouldn't be enough for music or movies. The package comes with Securelock software so you can protect your data from being erased and secure it from prying eyes.
The hinge on the Swissmemory is slightly loose but it sits in the USB slot without any problems and fits at a 90 degree angle parallel to the PC case. The unit obviously comes with the standard retractable knife but is also equipped with a pen, nail file, flat head screwdriver, scissors and a red LED light.
As with most of these styles of knives, the accessories aren't good for regular use and tend to seem like a bit of a novelty but they do their job well enough. The unit is very cute, finished with a transparent red outer casing and emblazoned with the Swiss Army Knife logo that we all know and love. The Swissmemory USB Victorinox would make a techno-cool and convenient addition to the key ring while also adding an edge of style. It is available in sizes up to 1GB.

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.
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.
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.
