It's been 3 years since Epson shipped its Stylus Photo R1900 printer, and even at what seems like a high price of $549, 13-inch models like these are relatively popular with scrapbookers, graphic artists, and amateur photographers seeking to produce glossy images that pop.

Epson debuted its NX625 all-in-one printer Wednesday just in time for the back-to-school shopping season. The multifunction printer, scanner, and copier features built-in 802.11n wireless connectivity, mobile printing by way of Epson's iPrint app, a 2.5-inch color LCD screen, and a memory card reader so you don't have to deal with the hassle of a USB cord to print snapshot photos.

If you've been looking for a way to print from your iPad or iPhone without too many headaches, your prayers might have been answered--provided you've already invested in a Cloud Engines Pogoplug.
The plug-and-play device, which we've already reviewed in two different iterations, is a versatile box. It already turns USB hard drives into online-sharable volumes; streams music and photos to phones and the iPad; and can send video, music, and photos to an Xbox 360 or PS3.
Pogoplug cloud printing, available in a software update that hits later this summer, should work with all HP and … Read more
