What to Expect from BlackBerry 10 0

What to Expect from BlackBerry 10

Image source Flickr With 2013 around the corner, one of the greatest things to expect out of the coming holiday season is the impressive number of smartphones available to consumers all over the world. From the iPhone 5 to Android’s new JellyBean OS and beyond, if there’s one thing consumers and business people alike won’t have to worry about, it’s the number of options they have to choose for a new mobile phone. With all these options though, it’s surprising that there is not as much talk of Research in Motion’s latest forthcoming innovation: BlackBerry 10.   Image Source Brownstock  While Android and iOS continue to make appearances in dozens of phones, all in which appear very confusing to developers in their options and features, RIM plans to release BlackBerry 10 following the mad holiday season in favor of introducing innovations without fighting the mob of Android and...

First Look: HP X576DW Officejet Pro MFP

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIf you are a small-to-medium business (SMB) you try to find items for your office that don’t cost you an arm and a leg. It seems printing (especially color printing) is always a problem for cost and ease of use. HP has been looking into this problem and come out with the X series multi-function printer (MFP). The officejet pro x576dw MFP is a desktop printer that can print up to 70 pages per minute in general office mode. The printer prints a 4 ink system (Yellow,Cyan, Magenta and black) with color matching when one inkwell is empty. The ink is expected to have a long shelf life and the ink head system is completely changed to avoid clotting and clumping. HP Product manager Larry Tracy stepped us through the Officejet printer and all its inner-workings. The printer has a roller...

5 Years of Geekazine.com – The Good, Bad and the Future

Do you remember what you were doing 5 years ago today? I do. I started this website. -Jeffrey Powers, Geekazine.com It was this day in 2007 where I hit the button and started Geekazine.com. The podcast was already running (as I started it a month prior). I launched the website and did the podcast for the day. I felt it was a great launch and an exciting time for me and Geekazine. Then I got laid off from my job. It was literally the day before launch that I was called into a room and told my services were no longer welcome. I was also sick during the launch and the audio was not going my way. I took the negative focus and put it in positive articles on Geekazine. Adding the Focus section and the video (pic 1*) which I talked about tech how-to. I also started...
