HP PageWide 577 dw Printer Pros and Cons

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSCan printers be sexy? Maybe not. But can Ink Jet printers be fast and very functional? You Bet! Let’s Geek Out at the Pros and Cons of this HP PageWide dw 577 Printer! PRO Keep in mind this is not a Laser Printer. It is an ink jet printer with a lot of technology advances from what you might associate an injet to be. PRO The PageWide disrupts the inkjet space. Other printers use an LED system that would move the printer head across the paper on 2 axis. PageWide does just that – a head that doesn’t move – the paper moves as the heads do a more competent job of laying down the ink. This makes the process faster and less ink smudge. PRO With great strides in HP Ink, the old water-based ink printer will smudge and bleed adding...

How to Run QSC Touchmix App on Windows

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSI am a big fan of the QSC Touchmix. Keep in mind, this device really marks the change in Live sound mixing. Sound professionals would haul in a heavy box consisting of a mixer, compressors, gates and EQs to do what this mixer the size of a laptop can. And it can also multi-channel record with only an SSD drive! I do have one problem with the mixer. While I can use iOS and Android to mix channels, there is no Windows app to do it. With a Windows app, I can use the Keyboard, mouse and other USB ports to control the mixer. Most important, I can set up a macro program to change multiple items. But worry not, because there is a way! An Android Emulator on Windows. Get the Touchmix 16 AMIDuOS After reviewing the versions of emulators out...

BMW-i8

First Look with Seth Leitman on the BMW i8

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSThe BMW i8 is a remarkable sports car. The car is a plug-in hybrid that debuted in 2013 at the NAIAS in Detroit. I was there with Green Living Guy Seth Leithman looking over the car. We geeked out over the design and charge-ability. The prototype only had a fuel efficiency of less than 2.5 L/100 km. But it’s real feature was the aluminum frame with carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). Since then, the BMW i8 has gone through some great upgrades. The 2015 i8 holds a 7.1 kWh lithium-ion battery for 76 mpg and up to 330 miles total. Of course, you can get there pretty fast, as the i8 goes from 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. The striking exterior is an added feature to it’s EfficientDynamic ventilation technology. The BMW i8 will reduce coefficient of drag to improve overall aerodynamics. At the end of...

It’s a great addition to any Itinerant’s tech gear as it saves your phone in so many ways.While I didn’t travel Internationally, I was in some spots where the signal was weak and was still able to keep in communication.
