Introducing the 3Doodler 2.0 3D Printing Pen! If you’re an early adopter of exciting new technologies, you won’t want to miss today’s review. This pen actually does the unimaginable. It doodles in three dimensions! Click through and read on to learn all of the pertinent details of the 3Doodler 3D Printing Pen. 

3D Printing technology has been revolutionized in a few short years. Cost of 3D printers has gone down substantially and they are now quite affordable for consumers to use in their homes or offices. The range of filaments and materials has also expanded so that there are now a variety of colours, textures and shapes. Here are some ideas to get you started on your 3D printing adventures.

Being able to print on demand is a great option. Every home should have a printer, especially when there are students living there (the printing of assignments just never seems to stop). Wireless printing? Even better! Without having to worry about a wired connection, you can put the printer wherever you want and print to it from virtually any device. Here’s how to configure your home for wireless printing.

In a world where we can print virtually anything on demand using the inkjet printer sitting on the desk beside us, what the heck is Instant Ink? The Answer, according to Hewlett-Packard is: “Original HP Ink ordered by your printer, delivered to your door.” Sounds convenient, but according to HP, by signing up for its Instant Ink replacement service, you can also save up to 50 percent compared to what you have been paying to keep your inkjet printer running. Now we’re going from convenient to very interesting. Let’s have a look at the details.

Printers, even the all-in-one variety, have become more specialized, despite the various functions they provide. Turning out pages of documents isn’t the necessity it once was for consumers and business owners, but like any utilitarian gizmo, a printer may be indispensable to those who need it. Ink has long been the part that has defined the category because of the cost associated with it. Epson is attempting to change all that with ink tanks that will last for up to two years.

So you’re off to college or university, leaving home and high school behind for the challenge of post-secondary education. Naturally, you’ll be bringing some gear along with you, like your computer and maybe a stereo, game console or a TV. Don’t forget to include a printer in the mix! If you don’t have one already (or if the one you own has seen better days), I’ve put together a list of 5 of the best printers to take to your dorm room.  

A printer is one of the most popular PC accessories, and with good reason. Even in the age of the “paperless office” it seems that we are printing more than ever. Students, in particular, make extensive use of printers, with fall marking the time when home printers fire up to churn out essays, projects and artwork. Whether your printing needs lean toward term papers, family photos or quarterly reports, here’s what you need to know to get the most from your printer.

Printers are inexpensive nowadays, and while you can get one for far less than a hockey ticket, you might want to look at getting a printer that does more than average. It’s possible to get a printer that also scans, faxes, copies documents and prints lab-quality photos, all in one solid package.

Setting up an office in a compact space used to be a lot more challenging than it is now. For one thing, there were a lot more wires and cables to deal with in those pre Wi-Fi days, but space was also a major issue. PCs were bigger, but so were the peripherals essential to a home office. Keyboards were massive, external hard drives were in enclosures that dwarf those of today and a laser printer practically needed a desk to itself. Thanks to advances in miniaturizing components, some of these devices are even available as portable units now. In this latest installation on the evolution of the PC from room-sized appliance to today’s mini computers, I explore shrinking PC peripherals.
