HP has unveiled a new portfolio of printers aimed at businesses, in both the OfficeJet and LaserJet ranges. The new batch of OfficeJet Pro printers are said to include professional color reproduction and high performance in a compact form for small businesses, while the HP LaserJet additions include printers that also boast high quality color prints, as well as providing what HP believes is the "best value" for black-and-white printing.
We're back at it again, testing another printer to see how it stacks up against our expectations. Today, we're focusing on the small business or home office printing scene, by testing out a small but mighty printer that hopes to save users money without sacrificing performance: Brother HL-L6200DW, a wireless, monochrome laser printer. Check out our review to see what we thought!
Brother has revealed a large number of printers as part of its product lineup refresh aimed at business and enterprise users, both for medium-level and higher print and scan volumes. New monochrome laser printers and all-in-one devices have been announced by the company, boasting features including Wi-Fi connectivity, color touchscreen displays, AirPrint and Mopria support, faster print speeds, and connectivity to business cloud services.
We call him the Black Rider, though he isn't actually riding anything. Nonetheless, he is the Stranger of Reason, he is the Masked Man of Information and he's come along for this week's installment of the MacNN One More Thing podcast just as Malcolm Owen and William Gallagher are getting far too deep into the topic of keyboards.
Epson America yesterday announced the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-6530 all-in-one printer, powered by the company's PrecisionCore tchnology. Epson claims the small workgroup-tailored WF-6530 can print up to 13x47-inch prints through manual feed, and saves up to 50 percent on printing costs versus color laser printers.
Epson has launched a new compact photo printer in its PictureMate range, that is said to be designed for quickly creating and sharing photographs with friends and family at parties and gatherings. The PictureMate PM-400 is a wireless photo lab that can work independently of a host machine or network, with anyone being able to send photographs directly to it from an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet using Wi-Fi.
Epson today introduced its next-generation Expression Small-in-One wireless photo printers. Designed to suit the needs of busy households and creative enthusiasts, the Expression Premium series -- including the Expression Premium XP-530, XP-630 and XP-830 -- utilizes the Claria Premium five-ink system to deliver borderless prints up to 8x10 inches and documents with sharp text. The Expression Photo XP-960 Small-in-One printer features six-color Claria Photo HD inks to deliver photo enthusiasts with borderless photos up to 11x17 inches.
When you say the words "label printer" to people, they either just really don't care or they get incredibly excited. This is one of those "the new phone book is here!!" moments we discussed back in our Hands On for the iOS app Deliveries. Today, we're looking at the Icon label printer by Leitz. It's a bit smaller than a breadbox, and can be used without wires for power or data; most of the printing we did was though apps on iOS and Android devices. Check out what we thought of it here.
It's inevitable, at some point somebody needs a hardcopy of a document. Paper never runs out of battery charge after all. Our Mom, just as an example, prints out recipes like most people eat corn chips. We've been throwing all of our print jobs at a Brother HL-3140CW laser printer for a while now to see how it works out. We think it's a good model for home use or for light business use. Unfortunately, it lacked a few things that would have made us fall in love with it, but it does what it does fairly well. Check out our full review!
When it comes to selecting a printer, the process is not exactly something most people put a lot of thought into. Printers are often touted as fragile, fickle devices that break at the drop of the hat -- and in our personal experience, most home printers are this way. But what if someone owns a business, and is looking to replace their small, slow printer with something a little more substantial? That's the moment the market suddenly becomes quite a bit more intimidating. We're here to help, though, as we offer up our thoughts on the Brother HL-L8250CDN Color Laser Printer, a laser printer that promises to change your opinion about printers as a whole. Did it change ours? Check our review to find out.

Snapchat sued over speed filter photo overlay
Accident victims in Spalding County, GA are suing Snapchat, as well as the driver responsible for the accident. The suit alleges that the app's "speed filter," which can post the speed that which a picture was taken, encouraged driver Christal McGee to attempt to reach 100 miles per hour in her car, leading to the accident that caused both Wentworth and Karen Maynard serious injuries. The suit alleges Wentworth Maynard suffered brain damage in the incident. McGee posted a photo of herself in a cervical collar on the way to the hospital, saying that she was "lucky to be alive."
