HP is bringing its first-generation of cloud-ready printers to market. In a recent announcement, the company said Google Cloud Print users can print directly to any HP ePrint-enabled printer from any Google Cloud Print supported app on any computer or smartphone. With this functionality, users simply need to add the unique email address of their HP ePrint-enabled printer to their Google account in order to enjoy the ability to print via the cloud. HP ePrint-enabled Printers First to Support Google Cloud Print PALO ALTO -- HP today announced that Google Cloud Print users can print directly to any... Read more...
Like it or not, the world wide web is taking over. And when we say "taking over," we really mean it. The web is everywhere these days: on your PC, on your netbook, on your airplane, on your smartphone, on your HDTV, and soon, on your printers. Hewlett-Packard today introduced their first Officejet printers with Web connectivity, alongside their ePrint and Print Apps. If you aren't keeping pace with technology, chances are you'll have difficulty working this generation's printers. Imagine that! These two new printers are the first designed specifically for small business and prosumer use with access... Read more...
It's a brave new world out there, and while you may not have known it before you started reading this, you'll really need a brave new printer to survive in it. Not really, but that's the idea that Hewlett-Packard would love for you to get. HP does a lot of things, one of which is make loads of printers (and ink boxes) to sell to a world that's not using as much paper as it once did. Thanks to having broadband in more places and more social networks in which to share things, consumers are less and less reliant on printers to share their multi-media. So if you're in the printer business, you better... Read more...
It's still sinking in that Hewlett-Packard (of all companies) acquired Palm, and while the finalization has yet to occur, it's assumed that the paperwork will be only a formality. Once the companies came out about the news, the biggest question people had was about the future of WebOS, Palm's own mobile OS. WebOS was one of the first major mobile operating systems to support native multi-tasking (using a "cards" approach), and the Palm Pre was actually a fairly important phone for the company. Some say the exclusive deal with Sprint really killed all hopes of the phone ever truly taking off, but... Read more...
According to John Williams, CEO and president of Domtar (self-billing as "The Sustainable Paper Company,") the major problem with kids today isn't drinking, sex, bad manners, or the rampant use of txtspeak—it's their printing habits. More accurately, it's their lack of printing habits, which Domtar blames on those darn tree-loving eco hippies and their crazy propaganda. According to Williams, anti-printing claims or concerns about the environment are "just bull," and there's no need to "think before you print." Take that hippies!"There is an appropriate use for paper. You should feel comfortable... Read more...

At first we assumed that digital photo frames with integrated printers were just some sort of sideshow. And who knows, maybe they are. But one thing is for sure--they just keep coming and coming. The next on the list is the iMo Foto Frame Photo Printer, which is actually being sold by the same folks who engineered the Mimo line of USB-based secondary monitors. The company claims that this is the world's first patented device to combine display and printing capabilities, but we're not so sure based on the others that we've seen emerge before it. At any rate, there's a 8" 800x600 display for showing... Read more...
The digital photo frame has obviously run its course and made its splash, but rather than choosing to fade away, it looks like frame makers are deciding to spruce things up. Sony is the latest to join the trend of adding new functionality to digital photo frames, with this one in particular gaining a printer (much like Seiko Epson's Colorio). The DPP-F700 falls into the company's S-Frame line, and as expected, it somehow crams a digital frame and a printer into a single device. The all-in-one device allows users to display slideshows on the 7-inch display (which has a WVGA 800 x 480 resolution)... Read more...
Um, okay? Just when we thought the digital photo frame market was hitting rock bottom in terms of innovation, Seiko Epson (of all companies!) swoops in to show us why we're wrong. For years now, the digital photo frame has become a low-rate item used to gift strangers at Christmas when you don't know what else to get. It was once a cutting-edge technology, but a lack of innovation in the sector has caused it to fall flat.Seiko Epson is evidently eager to spark things back up, with its new Colorio Me printer actually doubling as a digital photo frame. This is just one example of the outfit hoping... Read more...
While the Belkin name is most commonly associated with overpriced mice and a cadre of networking products, the company has been branching out of late. Take, for example, it's newest box: the Home Base. At first, it looks like a four-port USB 2.0 hub with an Ethernet jack, but in reality it's so much more.This companion box, which yearns to sit next to your WLAN router and share deep, dark secrets over CAT5, gives home users the ability to wirelessly print from any machine and even access files on a USB hard drive over the network. All you need to do is plug in your USB printer and as many USB hard... Read more...
Gasoline costs four bucks, but a gallon of it will get you twenty or thirty miles farther away from your mother-in-law, so it's worth it. Printer ink is famously expensive, going for upwards of $8000 a gallon, but at least you can use it to print a letter to the editor of your newspaper complaining about high gasoline prices. Lots of things are expensive, but we're hard pressed to come up with anything that seems to costs so much for how little you get than a text message. All the major carriers are raising their price for a single text message to an astonishing twenty cents. 140 bytes of data... Read more...
Web-enabled businesses (are there any other kind any more?) are always on the lookout for security breaches, and rightfully so, as hackers are working day and night to find overlooked vulnerabilities and exploit them. But office information security managers might be forgetting one fairly large exposure to the risk of stolen information:The networked multifunction printerThomas Ptacek, principal and founder at New York-based penetration testing firm Matasano Security, said the risk is more than just theoretical."Should my mom be worried that a hacker is living in her printer? No. But, if you're... Read more...
It is no secret that in the printer market, the money is all in the consumables.  Paper, ink, and the like are where the money is made, not printers themselves.  As such, a Boston man has filed a lawsuit against Staples and HP on collusion and anti-trust grounds.A Boston man has filed a class-action lawsuit accusing hardware maker HP and office supply retailer Staples of colluding to inflate the price of printer ink cartridges in violation of federal antitrust law. According to the suit, HP allegedly paid Staples $100 million to refrain from selling inexpensive third-party ink cartridges,... Read more...
Having just gone out for some last minute stocking stuffers for my significant (very significant if I know what's good for me) other, I can totally relate to this headline and story.  I purchased 6 cartridges in total for an HP Photosmart 8450 printer and it cost me over $170.  Now mind you, the printer itself, almost a full year ago now, cost me like $110. PopPhoto comments on HP's (and many others) racket in the ink business.  You think it's about selling printers?  Guess again.  The ink biz pulls in more profit than a high-end Cat House a when ship full...
