  • News: Hands-On With Sonys New, Lightweight and Low-Cost E-Reader

    Price and design are the two big components that drive the e-reader market, and until now, Sony was severely dragging its feet in the former.

  • News: Digitally sketch on paper with Wacom's Inkling

    When it comes to illustration on the computer, artists have had few choices: Scanning, which requires touch-up work (and, if necessary, vector traces); drawing with a mouse or trackpad; or, the most-appealing so far, working on a tablet or pressure-sensitive display.

  • News: WikiHouse Puts Housing Design in Your Hands

    Prefab housing has been around since the 1940s. The entire point of prefab was not to have to worry about the construction--all that happened somewhere off-site. It was anonymous and standardized, and led to perfectly serviceable homes that lacked even a breath of personality. After decades in which prefab was relegated to postmodernist architects, the modern DIY movement got to it, resulting in WikiHouse: a mix of Wiki software, computer-aided design programming, and CNC machining techniques that puts building design straight into the hands of the end users.

  • News: Why Cheap Color Laser Printers Are a Dicey Deal

    Most people shopping for a color laser printer want one because they think it will print quickly, produce good-looking output, and cost less to run than an inkjet printer. But the sad evidence from our tests and research shows that for the cheapest color laser printers, the opposite is true: They tend to be slow, their print quality beyond plain text is mediocre, and their toner costs as much as (or more than) the ink for a comparable inkjet.

  • News: Is your printer is compatible with Lion?

    Upgrading to a new version of OS X is a process that is always fraught with peril; no matter how smooth Apple tries to make the transition—and, by all accounts, the company makes it very smooth indeed—there always a number of factors that are outside of the normal upgrade process and must be researched and anticipated, lest they trip up the unwary user and cause all sorts of problems.

  • News: Ink-O-Dem Refill Service: Good Quality, Modest Bargain

    The Ink-O-Dem ink-refilling system has been on my mind for some time. As PCWorld’s Serial Refiller, I’ve been trying refilled and remanufactured black and tricolor cartridges for my HP Photosmart e-All-in-One, assessing their ease of use, output quality, and page yield. So far, all have been somewhat to significantly cheaper than the printer vendor's own cartridges; none, however, have matched the originals in output quality and ease of use, although some have come close.
