When you're living in a smaller space, it may seem like things get cluttered, disarranged or dirty so much faster. Despite the fact that we could probably just organize or clean more often, wouldn't it be just a bit more fun with these little tools in our lives?
We've showcased countless examples of an office creatively nestled into a small home's limited space. Some carve a workspace out of a closet, laundry room, or garage. If you're having trouble finding a corner to call your own, or perhaps don't work from home enough to feel a dedicated spot is justified, consider a modular setup. Read on for some tech solutions to fit your entire office in a drawer - assemble as necessary!
To some extent, we're all photographers these days. With a camera on every phone and digital SLRs coming down in price, we've all got a trove of photos waiting to be shared. When it comes time to share online, print, or email our favorite images, many are unsure about how to set the image's resolution...
Nothing quite messes with the aesthetic of a carefully curated workspace like a big, bulky printer erupting with a mass of cable spaghetti. Many dwellers decide to hide them in spare closets, but what do you do when your office is a multi-purpose space, like a bedroom? Take a cue from Pamela and hide it inside an IKEA dresser drawer!
I don't know about you, but in this age of digital files, instant message and smartphones, I hardly print out anything these days except for mailing shipping labels and the occasional monochrome sheet or two. Our current inkjet photo printer is overkill and most of the color capabilities go unused, so I think I'll be trading it in for this compact wireless laser printer. Rated for 19ppm and up to 1200 x 1200 dpi effective output, it's good and plenty for home office use, and should be about a third smaller than the full size photo printer we're currently using. And best yet, I won't have to replace the toner for 1,500 pages instead of the seemingly "print 10 pages, then refill" cycle with an inkjet.
There seemed to be somewhat of a demand for more information on this 4 years old printer since my Tech Top 10 post this past weekend. The Polaroid PoGo printer has been around since 2008, and has dropped significantly from its original price of $180 to a much more reasonable $50. The printer itself uses Zink, on the proprietary film, to achieve a printing process that doesn't require ink. It's advertised as a "mobile" printer, since it has a fairly small size and receives its data via Bluetooth or USB. Read on to find out what our experience has been with the PoGo printer.
Everyone is talking about the "cloud", but one company, Berg, is trying to put a happy face to the amorphous concept with the announcement of a technological throwback: a printer. The Little Printer is a wireless connected printing device designed to work less like a sheet-by-sheet household printer and more like a miniature printing press of Tweet-proportions, delivering bite-size daily subscriptions to content you want to receive from the cloud. News, puzzles, messages from friends, a word of the day, horoscopes, the weather report...all configured from your smartphone.
Ah the paper-free home office. Such a charming idea, but one that we rarely ever see executed, because in 2011, paper is still useful. While many of our friends have gotten rid of their printers at home and chosen to print at work, when you work from home you don't really have that luxury. Here are 5 reasons why the printer still lives in our home office.
Ah printers, while ideally we would never have the need to print anything, we don't yet live in a paper free world and therefore we, like many folks, own printers. Luckily our headaches with our printers are pretty few and far between. After troubleshooting an issue earlier today we realized that perhaps the tips we use could help others and so this post was born.
Back in the days when 35mm film was the photo medium of choice, you had one and only one option for getting those birthday party pics into your hands: The local photo counter. But now that you're shooting digital photos, you have options. Do you print photos at home? At a store kiosk? Through an online photo print service? Here's our medium of choice, and how we came to the decision.
