Epson launches PictureMate PM270

The Epson PictureMate PM270 4R portable photo printer is a nice compact photo printer. It comes complete with a carry handle and folds into a box when not in use. The quality is supposed to be very nice. It’s integrated with Epson Claria PhotoEnhance, as well as an ‘automatic scene correction function’ that optimizes skin tones, and color casts and exposure levels to produce photos as close to perfection as it’s possible to get.

You can also print without being directly connected to a PC. The LCD screen is a tiltable 3.6″. It even has a Bluetooth toggle to print photos from your cell or any other Bluetooth enabled device. The PictureMate uses a single ink cartridge which will be a blessing to many people. All in all it looks like a pretty convenient photo printer.

Presto Printer: easy printing for the elderly

Posted in Printers by Conner Flynn on December 26th, 2007

The Presto Printer

The Presto printer can receive emails and photos without having to be hooked to a computer. Think about it. That makes it a breeze for the elderly to get into the action. Those who are not comfortable with the computer won’t have to go near it. (Everybody knows that computers, like robots, steal old peoples medicine.) The printer comes with a $10 per month service, even though the service doesn’t seem to cover the internet connection.

It’s sort of like an Email to fax setup. After setting it up you can even SPAM-filter incoming messages. All you need is a regular phone line. It sells for about $150. All in all that’s not alot to pay to keep the elderly or computer-shy informed and be able to send them photos and emails. Grandma will be happy because she gets neat pictures through the magic box and Grandpa’s ears will be happy because she’s occupied and won’t nag him about watching TV all day. Everybody wins.

Casio USB label mouse prints

Casio USB label mouse.In a way, the Casio USB label mouse from Brando looks like an updated fortune cookie. It’s a pretty innovative doubling up of 2 products. Just print labels directly from your mouse.

This is probably for those people that need to label everything with their name on it. There is a drawback however. The thermal roll paper isn’t cheap. It retails for $14 for a pack of 3. Ouch! The mouse itself costs $29. But you really can’t put a price on cool. It might save your desktop from Post-It overload.

In the study the researches found that of 62 printers studied, 17 of them they considered “high particle emitters” with one of them putting out tiny, potentially dangerous particles at the same rate as a burning cigarette. According to professor Lidia Morawska who authored the study, the particles being emitted from the printer are similar in size to those that come from cigarettes. The tiny particles are able to make their way to the smaller parts of the …
