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...
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 for twenty cents. If the same pricing was applied on a per-byte basis to downloading one 4MB song it... 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 a Fortune 500 company, vulnerable printers on your network is a scary thing," Ptacek said in an interview... 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, although the suit doesn't make it clear how plaintiff Ranjit Bedi arrived at that figure.For most...

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 of Navy boys pulls up to port.   "$10,000 per gallon of ink? OPEC, EAT YOUR HEART OUT!... Read more...

At this time, inkjet printers are the most popular way to make prints at home but... Read more...

Hey gang, JeffB ringing in the weekend with the Friday morning news.  It's funny, since I've relocated to North Carolina and decided to work from home, weekends and holidays don't mean so much anymore.  I used to look forward to the weekend, and long weekends like Memorial Day, and now it really doesn't matter anymore.  Takes a little getting used to, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  Well, enough of my babble, let's get this show on the road: Review of the Belkin TuneDok Car Holder for the iPod @ WhiningDog.net: "With the TuneDok in place, the iPod looks right at home inside your car.
