LotusLive Meetings comes to the iPhone

An iPhone app lets people join a LotusLive Web cast and view shared meeting documents

Users of LotusLive Meetings can now participate in online meetings on-the-go with an iPhone app.

IPhone users can join a LotusLive webcast and share files over either 3G or Wi-Fi networks.

Users can listen to the audio for the meeting while viewing meeting content and see live shared desktop content like presentations and documents. They can also take part in group and individual chats and virtually raise their hands to alert the presenter.

It’s not quite like a true webcast, however. Users dial into the audio conference and then join the meeting online in order to view slides or other content.

The iPhone app is free and available now in the App Store but users must be authorized to access LotusLive Engage, a set of collaboration services, to use it. LotusLive Engage costs US$8 per user per month.

A similar offering is available for BlackBerry phones and IBM said it plans to soon include Android handsets and the iPad among supported devices.

This isn’t the first or only iPhone app that lets people join webcasts. Cisco supports iPhone users on its WebEx meetings which allows the phone users to start, schedule and join WebEx meetings and view shared content. Other companies like Fuze offer iPhone apps that let people start, host and attend Web meetings.

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.
