When it comes to tablets, the screen makes all the difference. Displays on tablets have evolved past just looking at photos or watching videos. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S 10.5 takes high-resolution displays to the next level.

The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S has a WQXGA Super AMOLED® display with 4 million pixels — that’s twice the resolution of an HDTV.

Samsung’s Papergarden™ app was designed for the Galaxy Tab S and turns it into a mobile magazine stand.

It also makes it easy to take your magazines with you instead of having a pile of them at home.

And the fingerprint scanner not only lets you secure the device with a swipe of a finger but it can also unlock different user profiles in Multi User Mode.

Messaging apps are another way to make tablets a more versatile tool. Verizon Messages lets you text from your tablet without having to use your smartphone. You can read a digital magazine on Papergarden and text friends about it instead of reading on one device and texting on the other.

Epson Drives Intuitive Mobile Printing Experience for Home and Business Users with Mopria-Certified All-in-One Printers

Epson3 Epson Drives Intuitive Mobile Printing Experience for  Home and Business Users with Mopria Certified All in One Printers

LONG BEACH, Calif. – Sept. 17, 2014 – Underscoring its commitment to creating a better, easier and more accessible mobile printing experience, Epson America today announced its first Mopria-certified printers for home and business – the Epson® Expression® Photo XP-860, Epson® Expression® Premium XP-820, XP-620, XP-520, and Epson WorkForce® WF-2660, WF-2650 and WF-2630.


The need for mobile printing is increasing in tandem with the growing ownership of smartphones and tablets, that is expected to reach 5.1 billion worldwide by 20181. Epson’s mobile print efforts are designed to embrace both the rapidly evolving demands of mobile customers and the diversity of multiple operating systems. One key initiative is Epson’s commitment to the Mopria Alliance’s mission for intuitive mobile printing and advancing mobile print standards that allow business and home users to print regardless of brand, device or operating system.


Mopria-certified Epson all-in-one printers work with the Mopria Print Service and the built-in Printing Framework in Android v4.4 or later (KitKat). After ensuring the printer has the latest firmware, Android 4.4 users can print from Google apps such as Chrome, Gmail, Drive and QuickOffice, as well as the Adobe Reader and Kingsoft WPS Office App.  With Android projected to account for 74 percent of global smartphones and tablets sold in 20141, Epson is actively enabling intuitive printing for an unprecedented number of new Android users.


“With 9 out of 10 U.S. smartphone users 16 years or older2 and two of five employees using smartphones on the job3, the need for intuitive mobile printing options and support is apparent,” said Patrick Chen, product manager of mobile connectivity, Epson America, Inc. “Epson is proud to actively support an industry-wide movement to streamline mobile printing ease-of-use and accessibility.”


In addition to Epson’s support of the Mopria Alliance and its goal to streamline mobile printing, Epson also offers the Epson Connect Solutions Finder to help mobile users make sense of the numerous mobile printing solutions and apps currently available. Using this online tool, users can easily choose a mobile device and compare which printing options are best-suited to meet their specific mobile printing needs.

As an additional convenience, app downloads and setups for new mobile devices or printers will become unnecessary. The Mopria Alliance pursues these goals by driving the adoption of selected technologies and by operating a program to test and certify printer compatibility with Mopria-enabled mobile devices.

How to Save Money on Video Conferencing

091814 1320 HowtoSaveMo1 How to Save Money on Video Conferencing

From dial-up to DSL and now from plain old telephone system to video conferencing, one can see how much development and technology has impacted the lives of the general public. The uptake on video conferencing may be a little slower with individuals ages 50 and above, but the younger set has decidedly embraced this technology, with 20 to 29 percent of them having tried video conferencing previously. Clearly, this generation is at an exciting time where the world becomes smaller and where it becomes easier to reach a bigger number of people in different geographical locations.

For enterprises, holding phone conferences was an alternative to business travel. However, this meeting style has its limitations, such as lack of eye contact. The person running the meeting can only guess what the participants may be doing, or whether they’re listening at all. As a result, often information is repeated or forgotten as the host of the meeting tries to cover everything while assuming that participants captured the message perfectly. This causes further problems later if the meeting doesn’t end in a complete understanding of what needs to be done between parties concerned. The best video conferencing experience may come at a price, but a service like Blue Jeans Network for cost effective video conferencing may just provide that solution for you.

Video Conferencing as an Alternative to Travel

Business travel may not cause a big dent to a huge corporation’s budget, but the same cannot be said for smaller companies. There is also the question of timeliness of delivery of information, especially if you are looking at the amount of travel it would take to several locations, assuming that the business has a wide global footprint. Even US President Barack Obama uses this technology when he needs to speak with experts from all over the globe over a critical concern. The White House declines to name the provider of their service, but suffice to say, it is a lot more environmentally friendly than riding Air Force One all the time.

Benefits to Educational Institutions

Video conferencing offers several benefits to universities too. There are many who would like to get a degree but are pressed for time in between jobs. These individual learners can now go and attend classes via video conferences and even be able to join group activities, as video collaboration is possible in these platforms. Students can share files either on the video conference platform itself or via email, though the former may entail additional costs. A service like Blue Jeans Network for cost effective video conferencing
does offer this functionality for its users, and educational institutions can potentially achieve higher enrollments if they offered such services to the student body, too.

Video conferencing is also just as important to faculty members who may be offsite for a conference but need to be within reach for their classes. Even guest lecturers can be immediately scheduled, as this eliminates the need to adjust according to travel plans. The same could apply to students who may have to be away for a short period of time but don’t want to miss out on classes.

Use for Medical and Diagnostic Purposes

There have been instances when video conferencing helped save costs and more importantly, minimized anxiety for patients and their loved ones. There were instances when medical emergencies called for the need to use video conferencing to contact medical professionals to ask for advice, such as in the case of patients located in rural areas where medical experts are less likely to be accessible. This can help save money for both the patient and hospitals, and still get the same satisfactory results. It will also be helpful for specialists to decide whether to move patients to another hospital, especially if medical equipment may be limited in one hospital. Getting expert advice would also be ideal before moving patients, more so if it becomes questionable whether the patient can take the stress of being moved, such as in emergency situations. A video conference can help with a preliminary diagnosis, too; instead of relying on a description of symptoms, the doctor can see the patient without the two of them needing to be in the same room. Basic video conferencing functionalities will be sufficient for this purpose, which means smartphones or tablets will work fine in these scenarios.

Signing Up for the Right Service

Understanding the needs and what users want out of it will help you come up with a better decision on what options and equipment need to be purchased and which ones you can forego. Do you need better visual quality since you will need to show actual samples? Is lighting critical because the conference will be on at different times of the day? It is a good thing that free trials and demonstrations are offered so these can provide you additional means to make the right choice in the end.


Mount Joy, Penn. – September 9th, 2014 – Pinkerton Road Studio today announced that the highly-anticipated Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers® 20th Anniversary Edition, a modern remake of one of Sierra ‘s greatest adventure games of all-time, will be available for purchase on PC and Mac on October 15th, 2014. Licensed from Activision Publishing, Inc, overseen by original series creator Jane Jensen, and developed in partnership with leading indie team Phoenix Online Studios, this high-definition update of the adventure game classic Gabriel Knight adds brand new puzzles and scenes, gorgeous new high-res backgrounds, a remastered soundtrack, and more New Orleans flavor to the beloved original story, plus exclusive new behind-the-scenes material including original concept sketches, articles and brand new audio interviews with Jane Jensen and members of the original Sierra development team to provide a more complete view on the Gabriel Knight series than has ever been available before. Pre-orders are now available at Steam,, the Phoenix Online Store and more at 15% off the $19.99 retail price, and include the pre-order exclusive soundtrack by Robert Holmes.

The game will also offer players never before seen behind-the-scenes special edition content on both the original and the remake. Extras include original concept art, magazine articles, interviews and brand new behind-the-scenes insight and one-on-one interviews with Jane Jensen and members of the original Sierra development team to provide a more complete view on the Gabriel Knight series than has ever been available before.


Hailed by Adventure Gamers as one of the most well-written games ever and given an Honorable Mention in the AV Club’s Top 100 Games of All Time, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition invites players to relive the classic voodoo murder mystery that’s captivated generations of game enthusiasts for two decades. In the game, players will take on the role of roguishly handsome Gabriel Knight, a struggling author and owner of a bookstore in New Orleans, who is investigating the Voodoo Murders for his new book: a series of savage ritual killings surrounded by voodoo trappings. But his search into the dark underbelly of New Orleans will reveal far more than who’s behind the killings, as Gabriel is drawn to the beautiful and aloof Malia Gedde, learns the secrets of his family history, and must comes to grips with his own destiny if he’s going to survive.

“It’s been a dream to be able to work on Gabriel Knight again, and I’m so exciting to bring it to a new audience. I think it looks amazing and it has all the classic gameplay,” said Jane Jensen, creator of the series.

“Gabriel Knight is the reason why I became a developer. It was a groundbreaking game that showed the power of Jane Jensen’s storytelling,” added Cesar Bittar, CEO of Phoenix Online and producer of the project. “The honor of working alongside Jane in remaking one the most beloved adventure games of all times is definitely for me a golden opportunity, but also a huge responsibility, and we are doing our very best to ensure old fans and new will be thrilled by the results and ready to play as a Schattenjäger once again.”
