Twitter rolls out Moments in Australia

New lightning bolt icon opens collection of Tweets pertaining to 4 different categories

Australians are the first in the Asia-Pacific region to experience Moments, Twitter’s new feature that collects trending Tweets specific to the categories of news, sports, entertainment and fun.

Users can tap on the new lightning bolt icon that opens the list which is updated as new Tweets or information becomes available.

Particular Moments that update frequently such as an awards show, breaking news or live sporting events, can be followed and updates will blend within a user’s timeline stream.

Twitter said in addition to its in-house team that curate specific Moments, it will enable partners to contribute.

Local contributing partners currently include the ABC, The Project, the NRL, the AFL, BuzzFeed and Channel V.

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.
