Smackdown: All-in-One Printers

all-in-one printers

I don’t think I ask too much of my all-in-one printer. I want it to print, scan and copy when I tell it to. I want it to do all that wirelessly, so I don’t have to connect to it.

Oh, and I want it to be so inexpensive, it feels almost criminal to remove it from the store.  Today’s All-in-One printers promise to…

Your Guide to Finding the Perfect Headphones

Finding the perfect headphones

Finding the perfect headphones has become as complicated as car shopping in terms of the countless models, brands, features, and designs to choose from. Earbuds or over-ear? Wired or wireless? Noise cancelling or volume limiting? The bottom line is that you need to choose a pair (or pairs) that work for your unique lifestyle and needs. Just like suburban parents need minivans to ferry around children and city dwellers need compact cars to make parallel parking easier, you’ve got to think…
