Online news aggregation and all-round awesomely funny site, Fark.com, has reportedly notched up its sixth millionth submission — we're not really sure though, as we haven't read the farking article.

Fark.com was one of the first user-generated news sites to appear on the Web back around 1999, and it has been a hit, especially with office workers, ever since. Users submit news stories with their own (usually witty, mostly offensive) headline, and if the modmins approve it, it appears on the site's main pages. A subscription model is available, too, called TotalFark, in which sucke…. users pay $5 per month (around $4.60 Australian). TotalFark allows users to look at potentially thousands of other threads that don't make the front page.

The selection of stories to hit the main pages is always a source of contention, as users claim the modmins often select headlines with mis-spellings and tired old cliches, purely because they will attract the most responses from users. Staple topics on Fark.com include the weekly Caturday thread, anything written by (or channelling) Ric Romero and paint huffer extraordinaire, Patrick Tribett.

Well done, Farkers. We salute you!

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.

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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.
