Apple iPod Touch pricing slashed by up to 25 per cent in Australia

Introductory iPod Touch gets updated feature-set

Apple has slashed the prices of its premium iPod Touch by up to 25 per cent and updated the feature set of its introductory 16GB model.

Pricing of Apple’s 32GB and 64GB iPod Touches has been slashed. The 32GB iPod Touch has dropped from $329 to $299, while the 64GB has been reduced from $439 to $349.

The introductory 16GB iPod Touch gains new features in spite of retaining its $249 price. It now comes equipped with Apple’s 5 megapixel camera and in five colours. These updates put the introductory iPod Touch in line with Apple’s 32GB and 64GB variants.

The iPod Touch is slim at 6mm and has the same display as Apple’s iPhone 5S, that is, a 4in, 1136x640 Retina display. It is powered by Apple’s A5 CPU and the rear camera can record Full HD videos.

Apple’s iOS 7 comes pre-installed, but the iPod Touch can be upgraded to iOS 8 when it is released later in the year. Running Apple’s iOS makes the iPod Touch compatible with the plethora of applications available from Apple’s App Store.

The updated 16GB iPod Touch will come in pink, yellow, blue, silver and ‘space’ grey within the “coming days”, said Apple.

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.

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.
