Use the Meat Cuts app to identify various cuts of red meat, and get tips on how to cook them.

If you have trouble recognising your rump from your tenderloin, you probably need the Meat Cuts app, which gives you a visual breakdown of the different parts of beef, lamb, veal, and goat. Yes, goat. (Our Mobile Editor, Tony Ibrahim loves goat.)

The app has been launched by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) and is available from the App Store for Apple, or from Google Play for Android -- no meaty love for Windows Phone, it seems. The main goal of the app is to allow you to more easily identify the various cuts of red meat that are available, and how to cook them in the most ideal way.

Unless you’re a dedicated carnivore, you might be surprised at the large number of meat cuts that are available, with the app showcasing 41 beef cuts, 25 lamb cuts, 21 veal cuts, and 20 goat cuts. You get a visual on the app so you can see exactly where the cut originates.

Seeing meat cuts visually drawn on animals might even have the opposite effect of putting you off eating that cute little lamb or goat. But for the most part, it looks like a delicious little app that will come in handy while deciding what to buy while staring at the meat fridges in the supermarket.

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.

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.
