Online film to expose what's killing you

Aussie film-makers and nutritionists launch health and well-being doco online

A nutrition and natural healing film made and funded by independent Australian film-makers and nutritionists was launched over the weekend, and is being offered online via pay-per-view by video streaming company Vividas.

The film, titled Food Matters, is a documentary aiming to inform viewers on the best choices they can make for their personal and family's health and well-being.

"In this day and age with so many companies interested in profiting from your misfortune and ill health this film will help keep your money in your pocket and your health in your hands," claims the film's Web site.

"We invite you to join the world's leading authorities on nutrition and natural healing as they uncover the true cause of disease. Find out what really works, what doesn't and what's killing you. Becoming informed about the choices you have for your health and well-being can save your life."

The film can be viewed within any Internet browser, but currently does not work on Macs. A minimum Internet connection speed of 256-kbps is required to view the film online.

Vividas' streaming technology allows viewers to watch the film without having to install any additional programs or download any files to their computer.

"Intelligence embedded in the web page (from which the video is launched) detects what files are needed to playback video on each computer. The browser requests these files from the server, and the files are sent to the PC and run within the browser, without the user having to install the files or to intervene in the process," said a Vividas spokesperson.

"The files sent are very small, fast to transfer and usually nothing is installed or added to the user's system."

Once a viewer pays for the film they can view it once, with their progress tracked at the back end allowing them to stop and recommence at a later time.

Food Matters is also available on DVD.

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.
