PC monitoring software

Let’s cut straight to the chase: eBlaster is a snooping tool, pure and simple. Once installed, it runs in super-stealth mode, can only be sum­moned with a customis­able key combination and password, and continuously monitors all keyboard and applicat...

3D design software

Eovia’s Designer 7.0 is an odd program. This isn’t due to its quirky interface (a feature shared by just about every 3D application on the market) but because, rather than indulging in traditional feature-bloat, it drops many of the program’s non-cri...

Lexmark’s so-so all-in-one

This easy-to-use $249 photo-orientated multifunction device has one-touch scanning and copying, as well as a driver that makes setting up, editing and printing photos easy, even for novices.

Hundreds of hours of music

If you’re going on a long trip — or if you need to have all your music with you all the time — you’ll want a digital music player with lots of storage.

DVD Copier

Despite DVD X Copy’s claim that you can use the program to create backup copies of your DVDs, it is still illegal under current Australian law to make a copy of a DVD movie — unless you own the copyright. So you will probably be breaking the law if y...

23 inch Flat-Panel Display

Despite its glorious 23in screen space, the L2320A is just 6.6cm thick and its 14.4kg frame makes it relatively comfortable to carry over short distances.

PC games: Homeworld 2

Homeworld 2 is less a sequel to 1999’s Homeworld than it is a refinement. It’s got a new plot that weaves through 15 single-player missions but other changes are more subtle, so when it comes to most aspects of game play, it looks and feels so much l...

PC games: The Lord of the Rings: War of the Ring

As the third instalment of Peter Jackson’s cinematic interpretation of Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings (LotR) hits cinema screens, a host of game tie-ins is being launched across a variety of gaming platforms.

PC games: Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII

The latest addition to EA’s addictive World War II shoot-’em-up introduces a slightly off-the-wall element to the ‘traditional’ wartime weapons of the era. And to be completely honest, I was worried some of the crazy sounding weapons and vehicles wou...

Books: The Digital Video Idea Book

One of the most popular tech topics this year has been digital video editing — and it seems many people have taken advantage of more powerful PCs to make something of their home movies. If this describes you, you’ll probably have noticed that it’s no...

Imaging devices with style: Scanjet 4670, Photosmart 7960

The 4670 A4 flatbed scanner is unique in that the scanning bed can be removed from its holder and used to scan objects simply by holding it over them. This makes it somewhat portable, although you are obviously limited by the com­bined USB and power ...

Faster Smarter Microsoft Office System 2003 Edition

If you read our feature on Microsoft Office System 2003 in the November 2003 edition of PC World ( page 87) you’ll know that some of the Office suite has changed little. So why buy a book if there are no major changes in big ticket items like World a...

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

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!

Mark Escubio

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.
