It has fallen to the Star Trek franchise to make something of the final outing for the Quake lll engine. What they’ve come up with -- Star Trek Elite Force II -- is decent enough, though perhaps not the swansong the veteran platform deserves.

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.
