Moto Mods for the Moto Z won't be cheap, with costs ranging from US$69 to US$299

You'll at least get two free years of Google Photos storage if you opt for one of Moto's thin phones.

A pair of sharp eyes spotted the pricing for the first batch of Moto Mods. They’re the custom modular add-ons that will add an extra battery, set of speakers, or even a projector with a simple snap onto the Moto Z. According to 9to5Google the pricing, discovered inside of My Verizon Mobile app, breaks down as follows:

  • JBL SoundBoost – US$80
  • Insta-Share Projector – US$299
  • Kate Spade New York Style Shell – US$70
  • TUMI Style Shell – US$70
  • TUMI Power Pack – US$90
  • TUMI Wireless Charging Power Pack – US$100

They’re not cheap, which keeps in line with how Motorola went to great lengths to proclaim the newest phone and its set of modules as a feat of precise design and engineering.

However, there’s some good news for your wallet. According to Motorola, you’ll get two years of free, full-size Google Photos storage with your purchase. It’s a nice perk, as currently full-size backup without compressed images will eat into your Drive storage.

It’s not uncommon to see offers like this, as both the LG G5 and HTC 10 give you 100GB of Google Drive for two years.

Why this matters: The Moto Z line has a lot going for it, though the main downside is the first phone out of the gate is going to be an exclusive to Verizon. An unlocked Moto Z is coming eventually, though it’s unclear right now if you’ll get the same offer.

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.
