Enter DYMO, which just brought out the DYMO DiscPainter, a dedicated disc printer. While we are discussing DYMO, we should mention their DYMO Desktop Mailing Solutions, a unique combination label printer and U.S. Post Office approved USB scale.

One of the biggest annoyances and problems for Digital SLR photographers is that tiny, almost invisible bits of dust on the sensor can result in enormous amounts of time "de-dusting" the images after a shoot is over. While applications like Adobe Photoshop Lightroom have some automated tools to help with the removal of dust that is already on the image, what your mom told you holds true: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In this review, we look at the approaches taken by VisibleDust and Delkin Devices to help rid your sensor of dust.

If you have ever been hiking and wanted a tripod to stabilize your photos, but didn't want to lug along extra pounds of photo equipment, you haven't had much choice.

In 1962 Olympic Decathlon Gold Medalist Bob Mathias founded a summer camp for boys in Kings Canyon, California, in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. In 1969 the camp added girls, and for almost 30 years it was a treasured memory of summer for generations of campers, counselors, and staff. How to bring together the people who made it so wonderful after all these years? Yahoo Groups and the Internet to the rescue!

There are few things that electronics like less than water. Get most electronic equipment wet, and it's pretty much the end of life for that device.

What if you plan on taking your iPod, MacBook or laptop to places that would normally instantly void the warranty? We would recommend you start your journey toward water with a case from OtterBox. We tested a variety of their iPod cases as well as their laptop case, and found them pretty much indestructible.
