HP Deskjet 2710e review: A cheap compact printer that won’t exceed your expectations

HP Deskjet 2710e review: A cheap compact printer that won’t exceed your expectations
‘Keep it simple’ advises the promotional sticker attached to the top of the HP Deskjet 2710e, and that’s exactly what this printer is designed to do. It’s the most basic all-in-one in HP’s new range, with a 7.6ppm 1200dpi print engine and a single sheet 1200dpi A4 flatbed scanner on the top. HP claims it can handle a monthly duty cycle of up to 1,000 pages, but it says more that the recommended monthly page volume is just 50 to 100. This is fundamentally a home printer used for homework, hobbies and printing e-tickets or holiday docs, but it could also work as a small or home office printer for the mostly paperless office. If you’re only printing 50 pages per month and barely doing any scanning or copying, why splash out for more speed or features that you’re not going to need?The price is obviously the key selling point, but it’s...

Elgato Stream Deck Mk.2 review: Functionality on deck

Elgato Stream Deck Mk.2 review: Functionality on deck
It’s not often that we delve into the kind of hardware targeted at Twitch streamers. The brilliance of the Stream Deck, however, is that it has many uses beyond playing a police siren sound effect to a watching audience.The Stream Deck is a 15-button panel that can be used to control all manner of things: Windows PC or Mac, Photoshop or PowerPoint, Spotify or Slack. Anything that accepts keyboard shortcuts is basically compatible with the Elgato Stream Deck Mk.2. This second version is a minor upgrade to the model we reviewed last year, and is now only part of a range of Stream Decks that span from the six-button Mini version right through to the 32-button XL. This 15-button panel hits the sweet spot on the price/utility axis as far as we’re concerned, although others will prefers the XL’s greater flexibility.The Mk.2 addresses one of the...

Samsung M8 Smart Monitor review: A versatile and affordable 4K display/smart TV

Samsung M8 Smart Monitor review: A versatile and affordable 4K display/smart TV
Pros Attractive 32-inch 4K display Competitive price Good connectivity 1080p webcam AirPlay support for Apple devices Cons Weak speakers Build quality could be better Poor documentationApple recently experienced a rare misfire with the launch of its 27-inch Studio Display. The display's 5K resolution delivers very good image quality, but its high price and glitch-ridden webcam were less welcome. So Samsung's announcement in April that it was taking pre-orders for its new M8 Smart Monitor was clearly intended to steal some of Apple's thunder.The M8 -- or S32BM801 to give its full model number -- has now shipped, and at just $699.99 or £699 it provides an attractive 32-inch display with 4K resolution for less than half the price of Apple's Studio Display ($1,599/£1,499).  It's also more than a simple computer display, as it runs...

Satechi USB-C Slim Dock For 24-Inch iMac Review: Fixing Shortcomings

Satechi USB-C Slim Dock For 24-Inch iMac Review: Fixing Shortcomings
There are plenty of iMac docks on the market today, especially after the launch of the 2021 M1 models. Part of the tradeoff for the computer's gorgeously slim design is the dearth of ports, all of which are hidden behind its screen. But while many of these docks and hubs are advertised as compatible with the 24-inch iMac, Satechi's new dock takes that to the extreme — in fact, the USB-C Slim Dock is designed only for the 24-inch M1 iMac. Sure, you could use it for other computers, but then you lose one of its biggest features. That feature is actually the wide gap on its bottom that perfectly fits the base of the iMac. This makes the dock look almost like it's part of the iMac itself, especially if you get matching colors. The dock also creates a wider base that you could put things on if you like. Either way, its exclusivity to the 2021 and...

Pervasive computing — IoT, edge, cloud, data center, and backCadence announced it has found a cost-conscience way to scale capacity for 3D electromagnetic (EM) simulations using a hybrid cloud consisting of local computing resources and cloud services from Amazon Web Service (AWS). Data stays safe on the local resources, and, if more computing resources are needed, encrypted simulation-specific data goes to the cloud. The 3D finite element method (FEM) simulation is part of Cadence’s Clarity 3D Solver 3D, which under this new method will automatically set up and run the simulation in a private, secure AWS chamber. The user defines the number of compute cores to be accessed and when. The data in the AWS chamber is deleted after the compute work has been returned to the on-prem computers. “We utilize Clarity 3D Solver with on-premises...

Pervasive computing — IoT, edge, cloud, data center, and backCombining AI with IoT not only gives another acronym AIoT, or Artificial Intelligence of Things, but it puts AI systems on the edge. Infineon Technologies has released its ModusToolbox Machine Learning to make it possible to run deep learning-based workloads on Infineon’s PSoC microcontrollers. The toolbox has middleware, software libraries, and special tools for designers to deploy machine learning models efficiently. Developers can use the deep learning framework they prefer, and a feature helps designers fit or optimize the machine learning in a resource-constrained embedded system. Subject to regulatory approval, STMicroelectronics is acquiring Cartesiam, an edge AI software firm based in Toulon, France, founded in 2016.
