Leaked screenshots have confirmed the Samsung Galaxy S IV will feature Smart Scroll and Smart Pause eye tracking technology.

As suggested yesterday, the Samsung Galaxy S IV will come with Smart Scroll and Smart Pause software. The features have been shown by SamMobile and were leaked yesterday as Eye Scroll and Eye Pause.

The typical Samsung TouchWiz settings menu shows Smart Scroll and Smart Pause alongside Smart Stay and Smart Rotation already found on the Galaxy S III.

Smart Scroll says: "The screen will start to scroll automatically if the device detects that you are looking at the screen," while "The device pauses video when it detects your head moving away from the screen," describes Smart Pause.

Other screenshots show that the speed of Smart Scroll can be adjusted and users can select whether it includes head movement for acceleration or not. Smart Scroll will work with, at the least, Internet, Chrome, the body of email messages and the body of Gmail messages.

The dimensions of the screenshots, if they are genuine, also confirm the Galaxy S IV will use a Full HD resolution of 1080x1920.

We can't say whether the screenshots are the real deal or clever mock ups. What we can say is that these features seem to be the logical step forward from Samsung's existing Smart Stay so we wouldn't be surprised if they do arrive with the Galaxy S IV.

Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy S IV on Thursday 14 March in New York.

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.
