“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” – John F. Kennedy
We all know how technology has evolved over the years. We have witnessed how the thing of the past has slowly diminished. Giant computer machines have turned into different hybrids, shrinking into more than half of what it was then. Wired phones evolved to becoming handheld devices with high powered touch functionality and wireless technology.
Today, wireless devices are everywhere, from your mobile phones to your cameras, laptops and of course printers.
Back then I used to complain to my mom that we need to buy a computer table with the printer rack built in it. The downside to it is that you can just imagine the pain of putting up all the electronic devices you need in one stand or table.
One of the most important thing to me is connecting your printer to your computer and it was never easy then.
Good thing is that we now have Bluetooth printers available. As a matter of fact, it was opened to the market for the past decade, however not until very recently in the last five years that wireless printers have really become commonplace in our homes.
Latest Wi-Fi printers now support mobile printing, isn’t that perfect? And what’s even better is that printers are advancing together with other devices.
Printer companies have introduced the peer to peer connection with Wi-Fi direct. Wi-Fi direct technology simplifies wireless connectivity. According to wifi.org: “Wi-Fi Direct device connections can happen anywhere, anytime – even when there is not access to a Wi-Fi network. Wi-Fi Direct devices emit a signal to other devices in the area, letting them know a connection can be made.”
Becoming increasingly popular in this digital age, Bluetooth pairings between phones, computers, tablets or printers is the easiest way to collaborate as a professional whether it be in a work setting or a professional one. However, this sort of ground-breaking technology can be both a blessing and a curse. A common issue with Bluetooth pairings is the connection between a printer and its sending device. Thankfully there is a simple list that will solve most Bluetooth printer problems, even for the most primitive of technology users. Continue reading →
Often, our desk area gets bogged down with a tangle of cords for our computers, printers, and other business needs at the office. At home there may be multiple family members sharing a printer, all having to plug in their devices when they need to print. Thankfully, today there are numerous choices when it comes to wireless printing. Say goodbye to the pile of cords and find one that fits your needs choosing from Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
Choosing a printer can be a stressful process. There are almost as many options for printers as there are options for paint colors and each one varies from the next. There are wired printers, wireless ones, printers with fax, laser jet printers, inkjet printers, and multi-function machines. The list could go on and on for ages.
In order to categorize the different features of printers and their importance to making a choice in printers, it is necessary to be informed of the different options that are available. These different options include pages per minute, color quality, type of ink and whether or not the printer is wireless or requires an in wall hookup. Pages per minute will vary by printer manufacturer and color quality will vary according to what type of ink used in the printer. Laser printing is more ideal for those wishing to print large volumes at a time but in black and white. Colors are better suited to be printed with an inkjet printer as hue and brilliance can be more greatly achieved with the use of inkjet system.
