Fresh from taking over the world of portable media players, the Apple iPod Video has now ventured into an unlikely space - online matchmaking.

With the huge growth in both broadband speeds and user adoption, the internet is no longer restricted to merely text, sounds and pictures. Video content is becoming increasingly mainstream and online dating service poddater has introduced video profiles into the often misleading world of internet dating.

No longer will people just be limited to grainy photos or misleading glamour shots, but prospective partners can now be viewed in full colour video. Users sign up to the site (which is free) and then upload a video of themselves, which can be produced using a camera, webcam or mobile phone. Pictures can also be uploaded, as well as the usual personal information found on dating sites.

Users can also browse the videos others have uploaded and download them to watch on their Apple iPod Videos using the iTunes software. This content isn't just restricted to iPods though, as any other portable media player that supports the mp4 format can be used to watch the videos.

Our trawl through the site show it isn't exactly booming - in fact nearly no one has uploaded a video of themselves yet. It's still early days though, an no doubt the success of the site will be watched closely by online dating providers down under.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
