Printer Ink

I always seem to run out out printer ink. And it is very expensive to refill. Especially if you buy new ink. I only use my printer to print out documents not photos so I don't need the highest quality. So I prefer quantity over quality. Pacific Ink is an online shop that can you dollars in your pocket for printer ink. With prices up to 70% off retail of the major manufactures. If you plan on saving on printer ink then go to Pacific Ink. You purchase ink for your printer made by Canon, Dell, Epson, HP, Lexmark, and many other leading manufactures. Also Pacific Ink has a no hassle return policy just in case the ink you receive doesn't work. This is very good as when I purchase on Ebay one time the ink I receive was not good. So if you buy from other places you might be disappointed especially with remanufactured ink. You will also appreciate the free shipping. There is a ton of savings you can look forward when you shop at Pacific Link. I plan to buy some ink myself and stock up and take advantage of the savings.

So next time you need Printer Ink check out Pacific Ink.

HP plans low cost 2nd gen Mini-Note

HP who has one of the most expensive Netbooks currently on the market is trying to compete at the lower end. Plans according to Jerel Chong, HP Australia’s Market Development Manager, is to launch a similar model to the current 2133 but to achieve this lower price the Netbook will be less durable. Which sounds like they may ditch the anodised aluminium chassis and go to a plastic body like other Netbooks from Asus and MSI. No word if the new version will have the Atom or Nano chip inside.

The Techcrunch Web Tablet Project

Michael Arrington of TechCrunch is working on making a simple Internet Tablet device that would be price $200-$300. Here is his idea

The machine is as thin as possible, runs low end hardware and has a single button for powering it on and off, headphone jacks, a built in camera for video, low end speakers, and a microphone. It will have Wifi, maybe one USB port, a built in battery, half a Gigabyte of RAM, a 4-Gigabyte solid state hard drive. Data input is primarily through an iPhone-like touch screen keyboard. It runs on linux and Firefox. It would be great to have it be built entirely on open source hardware, but including Skype for VOIP and video calls may be a nice touch, too.

The projects seems interesting and with Arrington's deep pockets he probably could get something achieved with this project.

Teclast M26 real pictures

The Teclast M26 gets photographed. It is the little brother to the Teclast M50. The M26 appears to be smaller than the previous M50 and with more rounded corners than the square-ish M50. The M26 will have full touchscreen, along with an improved UI, and the biggest added feature TV-Out. All in all looks like it will be another great player from Teclast that may borrow some designs from a certain company.
