The Epson Expression Photo XP-950 Is The Only Multifunction Printer You Need [Review]

DSC05020

I used to be a printer opportunist. Find me the cheapest printer in the store, who cares, they’re all the same.

Expression Photo XP-950 Small-in-One Printer by Epson
Category: Printers
Works With: iPhone, iPad, Mac, any other Wi-Fi device
Price: $259.99

Which, honestly, is true for a technophile like myself (within a certain price range, anyway). I have a Wi-Fi network, spare cables, and a ton of different apps that will let me print from my various Macs and iOS devices.

Not so, however, for someone like my parents. When I went to buy them a printer a few months back to go with their new iPads, we found out that even the AirPrint printers need a WiFi network. They don’t have one (I know, don’t ask).

That’s where the Epson XP-950 comes in. Yes, it’s a high-quality up-to 11X17 photo, paper, and disc printer and scanning device, but the killer feature here? Directly printing from an iPad to the printer without an actual Wi-Fi network to send the print job across.

Oh, and it’s super easy to set up and use.

Polaroid Opening New Stores Dedicated To Printing Your Smartphone Snaps

The Polaroid Fotobar in Delray Beach, Florida.

The Polaroid Fotobar in Delray Beach, Florida.

I can’t remember the last time I picked up a proper camera and took a photograph; every picture I take these days is on a smartphone. The problem with that is, I usually end up transferring them to my Mac, and then that’s where they stay. Forever. Making good quality prints isn’t as easy as it should be.

Polaroid is hoping to change that. The company has announced that is to open a bunch of new Fotobar stores across the United States that are dedicated to printing your smartphone snaps. You can pop in, upload your pictures, edit them, and then print them.

Brother Challenges HP’s Vaunted Envy Series With Sleek, New, Google Cloud Print-Enabled Printers

Brother Challenges HP’s Vaunted Envy Series With Sleek, New, Google Cloud Print-Enabled Printers

Small, wifi-enabled with the ability to print from tablets and smartphones, low-cost printing, equipped with a touchscreen, relatively inexpensive, fast…looks like a shopping list for the perfect printer, right? And that’s what Brother might have in their just-launched MFC-J4510DW, a sleek printer with Google Cloud Print connectivity and a price tag of $200 (though I’d love an explanation as to why Brother has stuck with alphabet-soup product names while its competitors have moved on to printers with names like “Artisan” and “Envy”).
