With all of the printer technologies out there, you really have to wonder which is better for the job at hand? Inkjet or Laser? So I have an inkjet printer downstairs which is used occasionally for quickly printing off various documents. The printer is a HP Deskjet 1000, do feel free to check out the review here and the video review here. However this printer isn’t really up to the job of printing off professional photographs and generally things that will require a lot of ink.
So there’s also laser technology and in the past they were only available in black and white and weren’t very cost effective. However today there’s colour laser printers which are much more cost effective.
There’s wireless everywhere these days, whether it’s wireless in a coffee shop, wireless in your home, and you can even tether your phone to create a WiFi hotspot. And even your phone works off a type of WiFi aswell, or at least the type of radio signals used within telephone networks is similar to WiFi. And even Bluetooth, a PAN network (personal area network) is somewhat based on the same principle as WiFi.
So with WiFi everywhere you really have to wonder “hmm… is wireless really that much better than wired?” and to put it simply it really depends on what you are doing. If you’re deciding on whether to go wired or wireless, there’s no definitive answer other than, if you’re going to be moving around a lot then you’ll want to go with wireless.
One day you may be asking yourself, should I get a portable computer or a static computer, the simple answer is… both! (If you can)
Yes both have their advantages and disadvantages which I will be covering in this blogpost. So, first of all you may need to ask yourself questions along the lines of, will I be moving this computer around frequently? Is size an issue? Am I prepared to cater for either form factor of machine.
