I’ve always found wearable technology a bit… well… gimmicky. Whether it was a Bluetooth headset, or a mini clip on MP3 player (iPod Nano). However there is now one form of technology that does somewhat intrigue me. Smart watches.
Smartwatches have technically been around for a while now and they’ve all sucked pretty much. Early smartwatches were basically standard watches (digital) with a load of buttons on them that could double up as a little calculator. Very gimmicky indeed. If we advance sightly we’ve seen watches that double up as “cell phones”. Basically the same sort of design as the calculator watches but included a radio transmitter, a sim card slot, a speaker and a mircrophone. They’re actually still around too, in the form of cheap imported GSM devices with wrist straps that are beyond unusable.
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.
