LG unveiled Pocket Photo Printer

LG Pocket Photo Printer
LG unveiled a new accessory in its home market – Pocket Photo printer. The small device is about the size of the LG Optimus Vu only thicker, measuring 2.8 x 4.7 x 0.9 inches. Leveraging heat-activated Zink paper, the Pocket Photo makes 2 x 3 inch prints without relying on conventional ink / toner (though you will have to buy that special paper from time to time).

LG’s printer connects to Android-based smartphones via Bluetooth and/or NFC and a special app that allows users to tweak photos, apply filters, add QR codes and messages.

The LG Pocket Photo will soon be available in South Korea in orange, pink and silver accents for $169. No word whether it will be available in the Western hemisphere, as well.

Epson Adds Remote Print to its Epson Connect Mobile Printing Suite

Epson Printer Cartridges
Epson has expanded its Epson Connect suite of mobile-printing solutions with new Remote Print. Remote Print, which we previewed at Epson’s 2012 Fall Product Preview earlier this summer, allows users to print to an Epson e-mail enabled printer anywhere in the world directly from their computer or laptop, and works with any Windows software. Once the Epson Remote Print driver is installed and configured, the user just selects File/Print.

How is this different from Epson’s existing Email Print solution and what’s the benefit? With Epson’s Email Print solution, users can print to remote e-mail-enabled Epson printers by attaching a file and sending it to the Epson printer’s e-mail address. The printer or All-in-One then prints the attached file. However, only Microsoft Office, PDFs and image files can be printed. With Remote Print, files can be printed using any Microsoft Windows application – not just Microsoft Office – with formatting and fonts kept intact. For instance, an engineer might wish to send an AutoCad file to another user. However, if the recipient doesn’t have AutoCad application software installed on their PC workstation, they can’t view or print the file. With Remote Print, the simply sends the print job to the e-mailed-enabled Epson printer or All-in-One, and the user doesn’t have to have the source application (AutoCad) installed on their PC workstation.

Besides Email Print (which will soon include printing on ledger-size paper) and Remote Print, other Epson Connect solutions include Epson’s iPrint Mobile App. With this free app, users can print documents and photos from a smartphone or tablet, and it’s compatible with both Apple and Android devices. With the iPrint app, users can send Microsoft Office documents, photos, and PDFs over a wireless network to be printed by an Epson Connect-enabled printer or All-in-One. Users can also scan documents using an Epson Connect-enabled All-in-One’s scanning capability to their mobile device, where the scanned file can then be saved, e-mailed, uploaded to a cloud-based storage account, etc.

Epson’s newest printers and All-in-Ones also support Apple AirPrint (automatically connect Apple devices to AirPrint-enabled Epson printers over a Wi-Fi network and print e-mails, photos, Web pages, and documents) and Google Cloud Print (print from an Android smartphone or tablet with Gmail or Google Docs accounts, or from Chromebooks and Google Chrome browser)

Thank Canada and PRINT For Your Day Off

In what is now Toronto on March 25 1872, the Typographical Society (Printer’s Union) went on strike against The Globe newspaper due to the long hours that were required of them to work six days a week. When George Brown, owner of the newspaper refused their request of a 9-hour day, the presses shut down at The Globe and at other papers as well. Almost a month later, with no agreement in sight, the Toronto Trades Assembly organized a march that included workers from other fields and headed to the government offices.

What started as a Printer’s strike ended up changing Canadian Law and the workers won their right to a 9-hour workday. A few years later the head of the American Federation of Labor was in Toronto speaking at a labor festival and came back to US and organized a Labor Parade which eventually the Central Labor Union turned into Labor Day on September 5, 1882 in New York. In 1894 it became a Federal Holiday.

So, if it weren’t for the PRINT INDUSTRY in another country, you wouldn’t be having this nice 3-day weekend.

Priceless Ink & Toner wishes you a happy and safe Labor Day weekend!
