What a difference 30 months make! In May 2010, I wrote about my initial experiences with the first Apple iPad. I was really excited about what it could do and how content could be read or consumed nearly anywhere. There had been a few “pads” built prior, but nothing like the iPad. All the big pieces came together with a very readable color screen, highly accurate touch technology, a fast processor, plenty of storage, and thousands of available “apps”. Access to information happened over WiFi or a cellular connection. Most everyone raved about the iPad and it validated what has become known as BYOD (bring your own device) to the corporate world.
So, here we are 30 months later. There are now over two dozen different choices in tablets from virtually every major computer and consumer hardware manufacturer. Even Google and Microsoft have entered the fray. Apple has two different iPads out there and the iPad mini. Google, Samsung, Kindle, Nook, and many others have competing models. Not surprisingly, the choice of what to buy isn’t so obvious any more.
Editors Notes: We get questions regarding the use of re-manufactured toner cartridges all the time. This article is written by Hewlett Packard specifically about their toner cartridge program and HP's position on re-manufactured toner cartridges. To be clear, this discussion concerns re-manufactured toner cartridges, not refilled cartridges which we never recommend or sell. The Computing Center does sell certain re-manufactured toner cartridges as well as the full-line of Hewlett Packard and other Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) toners. We are always available to discuss your toner needs and finding the most cost effective ways to manage your printers.
In order to increase their bottom line, many businesses are making an effort to cut down on printing costs. There are several ways to do this, including printing on both sides of the page, printing drafts in draft mode and shrinking your document to fill fewer pages.
