SanDisk SDHC cards climb to 4GB

Earlier this year Panasonic and Toshiba announced 4GB SDHC cards (SDHC -- Secure Digital High Capacity -- being the next generation of SD flash memory), both of which will be available in the coming months.

Sandisk not only announced that they're (just barely) beating Toshiba and Panasonic to the punch with a 4GB SDHC card, they're bundling their MicroMate SD/SDHC USB 2.0 card reader with it, too. (Users will need the reader until more of their devices can handle the seemingly-identical-but-incompatible new format.)

The 4GB SanDisk SDHC bundle is expected to be available in Australia in Q4/2006 with pricing to be announced closer to the launch date.

SDHC is the new designation for SD cards larger than 2GB that adhere to the SD Card Association's SD 2.00 specification. According to SanDisk, because SDHC cards are recognized by new SDHC host devices differently than standard SD cards, it is not backwards compatible with legacy SD format host devices. However, standard SD cards are forward compatible with new SDHC host devices.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

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.

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.
