  • Review: Doxie document scanner

    This is a great scanner for occasional scanning of single pages. It doesn’t have an auto document feeder, so you’re not going to use it for large scanning jobs.

  • Lexmark Adds Wireless + Duplex Printing to All-In-Ones

    These days, buying a regular printer sucks. You can get an all-in-one style machine that also scans and copies and faxes and makes coffee and spays your cat for not much more than a standard inkjet. They’re pretty boring, however, the design and feature sets being fairly static. Lexmark, though, has put out a unit that grabs our attention. The X9350 has two features that make it stand… Read More
