The freedom of being wireless ensures the Logitech iPod Headphones are a good buy for those constantly on the move.

Many of us have been waiting patiently for Apple to release an iPod with wireless Bluetooth capability, as this would open the door to using a large range of multimedia accessories. In the Wireless iPod Headphones, Logitech have given us a preview of what this technology is capable of - and we like what we see.
The Wireless Headphones connect to the iPod via a Bluetooth Wireless transmitter, which plugs into the headphone jack. Unfortunately, the headphones will not work with new model iPods like the nano and the fifth-generation with video because these models have not included the control jack seen on earlier units. Measuring 64mm by 32mm by 19mm, the transmitter does make your iPod a fair bit larger you most likely find it difficult to use other iPod accessories in conjunction with the headphones.
As with all standard Bluetooth connections, the Wireless Headphones will work within a range of 10 metres or less. At various stages throughout testing, we did experience some dropouts, but for most part the connectivity was perfect. The convenience of no wires is clearly an advantage and it is unlikely anyone would use the Headphones in a range of more than 10 metres, as this device is clearly aimed at those on the move. If you are looking for iPod Headphones that can be used wirelessly for home entertainment purposes, we'd advise to look elsewhere as the Logitech Wireless Headphones aren't recommended for this usage.
The Headphones themselves are a behind-the-head style that incorporate controls on the right hand earphone. Dedicated buttons are included for Volume Up/Down, Next/Previous track and a large centred Play/Pause button. Users are able to distinguish between these keys without having to take off the headphones, as Logitech have included indents on the volume keys.
The sound quality of the Headphones was fairly good, although we did notice that the volume wasn't as loud as the standard iPod earbuds. For most users, this shouldn't be too much of a problem but for those who like it loud, we recommend you test before you buy in order to ensure the volume levels are adequate. Treble and particularly bass tones were impressive, and we liked the fact that the headphones cut down on outside noise levels considerably.
The Wireless Headphones run on a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery and an AC Adapter with split plugs (to charge both the headphones and the transmitter together) is included in the sales package. During testing, the battery lasted about 8 hours, (considerably less than the battery life of an iPod) and took about two hours to fully recharge. The LED on the Headphones flashes red when the battery is low but it doesn't give you much warning before the batteries completely die.

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.
As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.
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.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
