Tired of spending a small fortune on printer ink? I hear you
loud and clear. In my homework-heavy household, it seems like I'm
replacing inkjet cartridges every couple weeks--to the tune of
$30-40 a pop.
Fortunately, as a card-carrying tech-pert, I've learned a few
things about conserving ink. With a few simple tweaks to the way
you work, you can stretch those cartridges a lot farther--and maybe
even save some paper along the way.
1. Use economy/draft mode
By default, every print churns out the sharpest, richest text
and images it can. But how often do you really need the highest
quality output? If you're simply printing a draft or something
that's not headed to the boss/teacher, consider an ink-saving
Most printers have an economy or draft mode that uses less
ink. The output won't be as dark, but it'll still be
If you're still trying to squeeze extra life out of your Windows
Vista or even Windows XP machine, this may be the ideal time to cut
Consider the benefits of a new PC: faster performance, much better
security, perhaps even some extra features (Bluetooth, a
touchscreen, etc.) your current model lacks. And with the holidays
just around the corner, there are smokin' deals to be had.
Just one little wrinkle: How can you move all your stuff--data,
programs, settings, etc.--from the old PC to the new one? That's a
hassle even for the savviest of computer users.
Laplink's well-known PCmover Home utility can automate the process,
but normally it'll cost you $39.95 for the privilege.
Not today. For a limited time, you can get Laplink PCmover Home free of charge.
Opinion Rewards gives you Google Play Store credit when you
complete surveys on your Android-powered smartphone or tablet.
So, yes, it's basically a bit of paid marketing in app form. But
that doesn't mean you shouldn't try it!
When you first install the app, it'll run you through a one-time
setup procedure and ask you a handful of sample questions (similar
to what you'll eventually encounter in surveys). My questions were
largely of a political nature, and ostensibly my answers will
indicate the kinds of surveys I get later on.
According to a Google announcement, the app will start slinging
surveys your way in about a week, with a new one appearing roughly
every week thereafter.
When I see the words "8-inch Android tablet" paired with the
numbers "$129.99," I sit up and take notice.
After all, Apple's new 8-inch (well, 7.9-inch) iPad Mini just
debuted with a starting price of $399. A tablet that costs a
whopping $270 less must be a hunk of junk, right?
That was my thinking as I approached the Ematic EGP008, a new
tablet that, on paper, seems a little too good to be true.
Available in your choice of black, blue, gray, or red, the
EGP008 looks like most other tablets in its class. It's nicely
tapered at the rear, and its gently rounded edges make for a
comfortable grip. It also feels reasonably light, weighing just a
hair over one pound.
The backside also has labels for the various items along the
bottom edge, which include the power button, headphone jack,
microUSB and microHDMI ports, and microSD slot.
If you're a Mac user, you already paid a fairly high price for your
hardware, and you've probably discovered that Mac software tends to
be pricey as well.
Every so often, though, you can score a great deal on a
software bundle. Like this one: For a limited time, StackSocial has
the Summer 2013 Mac Bundle for $49.99. It includes
10 programs that would cost $482 (!) if purchased separately.
The undeniable highlight of the bundle is Parallels Desktop 8,
a hugely popular utility that allows you to run Windows on your
Mac--without having to reboot.
Got an iPhone? Run, don't walk (virtually speaking), to the App
Store and download Google Search. Go ahead, I'll wait.
This app has been around for awhile now, but a new update released yesterday makes it even
better. Let's start with what's old, then move onto what's
As you might expect, Google Search endows your iPhone (or iPod
Touch or iPad) with the power of, well, Google search. Perhaps
you're already using Google as the search engine in your Safari Web
browser, but the app takes things to a whole new level.
First and foremost, it supports voice-powered searching, which
works with startling, almost magical accuracy.
