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
A couple weeks back I told you about the one tablet deal you don't want to miss:
the 7-inch Barnes & Noble Nook HD for $129. (I also sang the
praises of the 8.9-inch Nook HD+, which was slashed to $149, but
that's a topic for another day.)
Even though Barnes & Noble has announced it will no longer
be making its own color tablets (instead partnering with a
third-party manufacturer), it was probably inevitable that Amazon
would respond to such a huge pricing discrepancy.
And it has: the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD has been cut to $169 from $199, though
this isn't necessarily permanent.
It seems like every other day there's another incredible tablet
deal, but trust me when I say this is the most incredible tablet
deal I've seen in 2013--maybe ever.
For a limited time, Barnes & Noble is offering the Nook HD and Nook HD+ tablets for $129 and $149,
respectively. These models usually sell for $199 and $269.
These are new units, not the refurbished ones you'd expect at
such discounted prices. What's more, they're among the top-rated
tablets in their class, with ultra-high-resolution screens and a
few features you won't find in competing models from Amazon and
In case you're not familiar with them, the Nooks run a
specialized version of the Android operating system, one that's
custom-tailored to Barnes & Noble's media store.
I've seen tablets designed with kids in mind, but a
tablet just for cooks? That's a new one.
Yesterday, Archos announced the ChefPad, a 9.7-inch Android-powered tablet stocked
with kitchen-friendly apps. It goes on sale in June for an
estimated retail price of $209.99.
That alone makes it an interesting buy, if only because most
tablets of this size tend to sell for a lot more. The Nexus 10, for
example: $399. The iPad: $499 and up. Even the new Asus MeMo Pad
Smart 10 runs $299.
Of course, the ChefPad doesn't have quite the same level of
A couple weeks ago I shared some thoughts on owning an ultrabook, ultimately
trying to answer the question of whether these thinner, lighter
laptops are worth the money.
See, I'd just purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad U310, which at the
time seemed like a great bargain. But having spent some additional
hours with not only that model, but also a Samsung Series 9, I
wanted to hit this topic one more time.
As I noted previously, "ultrabook" is neither a brand nor a
generic classification, but rather an Intel-created marketing
