The latest update to Google Earth contains some new terrain imagery around eight different parts of Australia.

Developed by the Google geo-engineering team, Australia was the only country to receive new terrain images this update.

According to Google, people planning outdoor activities and trips across the country now have access to a whole new level of information, contributing to Australia’s ‘virtual tourism’.

“Terrain view in Google Earth helps to show people around the world just how spectacular Australia's natural landscape is," a Google spokesperson said.

The new addition to Google Earth highlights some terrain surrounding Wollongong, Perth, Hobart, Geelong, Canberra, Cairns, Adelaide and the Whitsunday Islands.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

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.
