Just how bad is copying in the tech industry? While there should be no debate that everyone seems to be borrowing design ideas from everyone else, is it becoming a pandemic? Tim and David chat about this, and a variety of other topics I would remember better if it were not twelve long hours ago that we recorded the show and when I am typing this up. Oh, and Mr. Cohen never did send me that link for Dungeon Raid, so I had to spend at LEAST forty-five seconds looking it up myself! I know, right?!?

HP LaserJet CP1025nw Color Printer

On November 29, 2011, in Macintosh, printer, Review, Wireless, by John Nemerovski

LaserJet CP1025nw Color
Company: HP
$179.00 US

HP LaserJet CP1025nw Color is the most affordable SOHO (small office, home office) color laser printer HP has ever produced, and the best printer in this category we have reviewed at MyMac. Unpacking takes a couple of minutes. Weight and bulk are minimal. Wireless software installation and setup take a few more minutes, without any glitches whatsoever. Color laser toner ships pre-installed, requiring no annoying and possibly messy acquaintance with the printer’s internal components. In a word, hallelujah.

The printer communicates with computers via USB, Ethernet cable, or WiFi. The latter is being used to test HP LaserJet CP1025nw Color because wireless printing is the SOHO trend. HP claims this model is the “world’s smallest color laser printer,” and it certainly has a tiny footprint and physical presence, plus attractive design.

A Macintosh sends its document info to the printer almost instantly, and completed prints emerge seconds later. When I click PRINT on my MacBook Pro, which is in my house, the printer completes basic print jobs before I can dash out to my studio office, thirty feet away, as fast as I can run.

Jobs CEO No More

A sad beginning to the show. After Gaz and Guy finished recording Tuesday, Steve Jobs resigned from Apple. This was too big a story to wait until next week so Tim Robertson (you MAY have heard of him) and Guy record their thoughts on the passing of the torch at our favorite tech company. It’s at the beginning of the show but was recorded later…mind explodes!

Meanwhile some time before that, a rare East Coast earthquake shakes things up for Guy and he seems a little more brain scattered than usual, but fortunately Gaz is there to keep him on the straight and narrow. The whole HP/WebOS thing whets some mention along with updates, Mac App Store pricing, oddly shaped German Tablets, and Orangoutangs. How is Version and Auto-Save different? We have to stop the show to find out and Gaz FINALLY gets a People’s Pick (or three). Guy cuts a bit of himself out of the show because he basically gave away Gaz’s Contest…BAD GUY!

Then, HP kills off not only the new WebOS devises, but all their consumer PC business to boot. Double yikes! Finally, would you rather have forty iOS games, or one Nintendo 3DS game?

I Just Bought A Windows Laptop

On January 4, 2010, in Opinion, by Elisa Pacelli

My husband uses Windows computers (oh, the shame!), but for his purposes it’s fine. His computing knowledge is limited to Fantasy Football and online poker. Hubby was using a very old desktop computer that finally bit the dust this past fall. Rather than buy another computer, I let him use my HP Vista laptop.

“You have a Windows computer?” I hear you all saying right about now. Let me give you a brief history of why I have one: I went back to college in August of 2007. Even though the college is six miles away, I chose to take my classes online. This meant I needed to log on to the college servers for some of my classes. Since they are a Windows-based school, it was just easier to buy a Windows computer.

Back to the story. I used my laptop only during school, and just for school. No iTunes, no photos, just school work. The computer was shut down between semesters. I graduated in May, 2009, and kept the computer off until October 2009, when hubby needed it.

But our story takes a nasty turn. My WIndows laptop died in early December. Battery and hard drive were fine; it was probably something with the motherboard. HP wanted to charge me $259 to fix it – and they thought they were doing me a favor! No way!

Hewlett-Packard Photosmart 7280 All-In-One Printer
Company: HP
US $299.00

I’ve been a long-time user of HP all-in-one printers. My Photosmart 2710 has a reliable workhorse for me, in spite of a few small irritations.

While there are some drawbacks to having all your printing/scanning/copying/faxing eggs in one mechanical basket, I love the convenience of having only one box to deal with. When I was offered the chance to review the Photosmart 7280, I jumped at the chance.

HP Photosmart C4280 All-in-One Printer
Company: HP

Price: $99 (US)

I remember hearing once, long before computers became so popular, that they would become so fast and powerful, with a storage capacity and connectivity, that we would essentially live in a paperless world. And so here we are today, in a world dominated by computers of all shapes and sizes. Computers are so common now that, if we know someone who does not have one, we are mystified how that could even be possible. But the promise, or prediction, of the paperless world has never come to pass. If anything, the commonality of computers has only increased our need for paper. Be it for documents or pictures, printers of all shapes and sizes can be found plugged into most computers, whether using a direct USB connection or over a local area network.
