Watch Apple’s Oct 16 launch event live

A new iPad is expected to take on Google’s upcoming Nexus tablet in the coming days

Apple is expected to announce new versions of its Mac computers and notebooks come 16 October, but the device that has people waiting with bated breath is the follow up to the company’s iPad Air.

The revamped iPad will have stiff competition from Google, if a Forbes report pans out. Word has it Google will finally take the wraps off its Nexus 9 tablet and Nexus 6 smartphone tomorrow morning, at about the same Apple will unveil the iPad Air 2.

Google isn’t holding a launch event, with the tech giant predicted to turn to its blog for the announcement.

Apple is hosting an event at the Town Hall auditorium located on its campus in California. The best part: Apple is streaming the event live, which means you’ll be able to watch the announcement as it happens.

Watch the Apple event here.

Fans who cannot get up at 4am can keep tabs on the Good Gear Guide site, which will be covering the event extensively as it happens, along with recaps of the new products.

Who knows, there might be another “one more thing” moment.

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.
