Lights, camera, action: the Facebook movie

Director David Fincher is reportedly in advanced talks with Columbia Pictures to direct the The Social Network

You know you've made it big-time when a movie is made about you. Remember last year when we heard news of the story behind Facebook coming soon to cineplex near you? Today we are hearing that the movie, called The Social Network, is approaching production schedule, set for sometime at the end of this year.

Director David Fincher is reportedly in advanced talks with Columbia Pictures to direct the The Social Network, according to a story from Variety. The script is written by Aaron Sorkin and is based on an adaptation of the upcoming book Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal, written by Ben Mezrich.

Fincher has already directed many successful movies such as Seven, Fight Club, Zodiac and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Scott Rudin, Michael De Luca, Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti are reportedly all set to produce The Social Network.

Ben Mezrich's book on Facebook will be on shelves on July 14, but already has a review on Amazon from Kevin Spacey. His review (keep in mind he is producing the movie based on this book) however puts an interesting angle on how the movie might turn out to be: "a captivating story of betrayal, vast amounts of cash, and two friends who revolutionized the way humans connect to one another-only to have an enormous falling out and never speak again."

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.

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.
