Microsoft Silverlight 3 launch event set

Company on July 10 to tout rich media technology as well as design tools platform

Microsoft is planning a launch event on July 10 for its Silverlight 3 technology and the accompanying Expression Studio 3 toolset, a company representative said Friday evening.

The company has not yet announced official ship dates for the two technologies, the representative said. But the launch event, planned for the San Francisco Bay Area, is intended as an opportunity to highlight the work customers and partners have been doing with Silverlight and Expression Studio, and to tout features of the two releases. Silverlight is Microsoft's plug-in technology for rich media applications.

Version 3 has been slated to offer offline capabilities such as search engine optimization and multi-touch support, as well as hardware-based graphics acceleration.

Expression Studio has featured Microsoft's Expression suite of application design tools  for building Windows and Web interfaces.

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.
