Amazon.com will let copyright holders opt out of having their books read aloud on the company's Kindle 2 book reader, in an apparent concession to concerns raised about the device's text-to-speech feature.
Australian Internet users feel broadband value has not improved over the past twelve months, according to Whirlpool's 2007 Australian Broadband Survey, released this week.
The SanDisk Sansa Connect aims to both connect users and rid them of the need to hook up their player to a PC.
Based on previous experience from building my own arcade cabinet, recreation of a classic arcade system can be a tricky affair. A great deal of information is available on the Internet from other people's examples, but never in one centralised location. This is where this book comes into the picture.
Targeted at new and experienced eBay users alike, this book by Greg Holden is the ultimate guide book on everything and anything to do with eBay. Being a novice eBay user, I was interested to see if this book would help me understand the fundamentals of online bidding and how not to get duped by some of the artificial sales that everyone hears about. The fact that there is a diverse range of things available for purchase is why eBay still remains popular to this day.
Google is one of the most powerful and most widely-used search engines in the world. The actual word, Google, has even become a verb, meaning 'to search'. There are even examples of people describing how they searched for information on prospective partners by 'googling' them.
Mac OS X made its debut three years ago and is now on its third major revision, called Panther. It’s time for OS 9 holdouts to think seriously about junking the Classic operating system and making the switch.
Now in its second edition, High Score is the ultimate coffee table book for gamers and geeks alike.
From Scott Mueller — the author who so far has brought us 15 editions of Upgrading and Repairing PCs — inevitably comes a technical manual dedicated to the notebook computer. This book is much like an encyclopedia for notebook computers in that it also covers all that there is to know about the history of portable computers and the different types of notebooks that have been available since the 1980s.
The big thing about Macs was that — supposedly — you could sit a newbie down in front of one and three nanoseconds later they’d have the system down. But now there are two problems with that: Windows XP, which is a jolly nice operating system, and Mac OS X, which is even nicer but hides a scary UNIX core beneath that sexy brushed aluminium interface.
Digital video editing is one those infuriating technology propositions. Everyone wants to make home movies that look like they could be shown in your local multiplex, but often a multitude of problems crop up on the way to finishing your masterpiece. From equipping your PC to shooting good footage, editing it and then making DVDs, there’s a lot that can go wrong. Hence, titles like this one.
eBay is a whole lot more than an online flea market. Its software creates a platform that you can use to run a business (or, it must be said, use to unload useless stuff that’s clogging up your garage), but to really get ahead you’ve got to know the software inside out.
If you’ve seen those glamorous sites featuring Flash and want some of that magic for your own outpost on the Web, this book is worth considering.
Online! The Book tries to be so many things to so many different readers that it ends up feeling like a bit of a brain dump.
If you think your Web searches are a little lacklustre and you’re often frustrated by the results, How to Do Everything with Google has a bookload of tips to improve your skills.

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.
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!
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.
