Earlier this year, HP took a serious amount of flack for some crazy "exploding printer" hoopla that the company swears was never true to begin with. But, there was still an issue with unauthorized access, which the company has just taken action to resolve. On Nov. 29, HP announced that the potential existed for a certain type of unauthorized access to some HP LaserJet printers and confirmed it has received no customer reports of unauthorized access. HP today issued the following statement: HP has built a firmware update to mitigate this issue and is communicating this proactively to customers and partners. No customer has reported unauthorized access to HP. HP reiterates its recommendation to... Read more...
Is there such thing as an affordable laser printer? Well sure, even ones that print in color. What about a 3D scanner? Those tend to run several hundred dollars, and can easily creep into four-digit territory. So imagine what a color laser printer with 3D scanning functionality baked in would run. Conventional wisdom says such a device would cost and arm and a leg, but Hewlett Packard has something else in mind. HP recently unveiled its TopShot LaserJet Pro M275, the company's very first color multi-function printer (MFP) with TopShot scanning that lets you scan, copy, and print from a single device. But what really sets this thing apart is it's capable of scanning 3D objects. Why would you want... Read more...
Canon went and kicked out a couple of new wireless (802.11n certified) all-in-one photo printers, the Pixma MG8220 and MG6220. These versatile printers do more than print out TPS reports and family photos, they also let you scan and copy images, as well as send print commands over your wireless connection, even from your smartphone. The top-end Pixma MG8220 can spit out a 4-inch x 6-inch borderless photo in as little as 20 seconds and is rated at 12.5 ipm for black-and-white documents, and 9.3 imp for color. It supports a maximum color resolution of 9600 x 2400 dpi, comes equipped with a 3.5-inch LCD screen, a two-way paper feed, and is the only current Canon Pixma model with a Film Adapter Unit....

It's a little strange that the same company responsible for the TouchPad is also responsible for one of the most compact laser multifunction printers of all time. But hey, that's what happens when a huge enterprise company takes over a company like Palm. This week, HP is introducing the LaserJet Pro 100 color MFP M175nw, a compact printer that's made for small to midsize businesses, and able to handle printing, copy and scanning. It's priced at just $349, and sports built-in features such as HP Auto-Off, Instant-on Technolog and both Ethernet and wireless connectivity. Businesses gain the ability to print from virtually anywhere with HP ePrint, and did we mention just how small it is? HP Introduces... Read more...
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 HP ePrint-enabled printer from any Google Cloud Print supported app on any computer or smartphone....

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 to the Internet, and the new feature set is quite impressive. Users can print web content such... 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 have a good plan to get things back on track when the world starts to look away from printing, right?... 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 that's all water under the bridge at this point. Now, on HP's first conference call regarding financials... 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 to use it appropriately and you shouldn’t be feeling there is some environmental negative when you...

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 off slideshows and a printer that pops out 4"x6" photographs at 300x300dpi. As a standalone device,... 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) as well as print out some of those favorite photos on 4" x 6" paper. The prints are 300x300dpi in quality... 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 to make printers more like home appliances than peripheral devices for PCs, and considering that HP... 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 drives as you like. Once setup is complete, any machine on the network can print to that printer... Read more...
