Coming down with Xbox Fever...

Rather than offer up more and more sexually explicit advertisements many companies are taking a more subtle route. The www.Ilovebees.com viral campaign for the release of Halo 2 on Xbox opened up the many possibilities of subtle marketing with a slow release of "leaked" and "unofficial" scoops, all really under complete control from Microsoft. Then came the viral campaign www.ourcolony.com which "leaked" the first ever images of the Xbox 360 to the cry of frenzied, theorizing gamers falling prey to the evil genius of Microsoft marketing. www.origenxbox360.com followed, offering to show the promised land, which turned out to be a competition and was quickly followed by yet another campaign at www.hex1168.com; also a competition.

Now just when you think you've had just about as much viral bombardment as you can handle a new Xbox 360 campaign hits the web, the only difference is, this one is just for Australians. www.063xobx.com.au is the first large scale viral to be targeted solely at Australians. Ever other campaign has been pretty much only for US or European markets with Australians left feeling like "Sloth" from The Goonies, the locked away family freak.

Care to play?

www.063xobx.com.au challenges users to play a game over 10 levels with no instructions as to how to get to the next level. Along the way there are 3 downloadable prizes and at the end there is a surprise that Xbox lovers will appreciate. The game will require some Xbox knowledge; some Halo knowledge and some Xbox360 knowledge to complete and is well designed and intelligently conceived. If you are a fan of Xbox and are looking forward to March 2nd, this is a site well worth checking out.

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.

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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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!

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.
