Who else wants to save on printer ink?

Printer ink is just way to expensive these days to buy in the store.  If you go to the store and buy ink it could literally cost you more than a new printer would cost.  I know that is insane but it is true.

The last few months I have been ordering my ink refills for the office and home from this website.

They have ink refills for just about any printer ever made.  My last order I found an XL version of my refills which is supposed to have twice as much ink as standard refills and only cost 4$ more than the normal cartridges that I buy.

I have been using these XL printer ink refills for almost a month now so I do seem to be getting better printer mileage.  Several of my family members and I pooled together and ordered all our ink and used the 15% coupon they have right now, on top of the much lower than store price they already have.

Any of our users who are looking to save close to half what they are paying for ink refills in the store just click here and see if they have the right refills for your printer.

 

Is Technology Killing Us?

We all love our gadgets and gizmos but, increasingly, it seems that research is suggesting that the electronic devices we use everyday could actually be putting us at greater risk than we initially thought.

For example, the World Health Organisation has just placed mobile phones in the category ‘2B – possibly carcinogenic to humans’, which means that your beloved handset now sits alongside pickled vegetables, printer ink and coffee when it comes to possible threats to your wellbeing.

However, much of this is based around how much you use your phone. Certainly, the worrying headlines about contracting brain cancer might help to sell newspapers, but sensible use of a phone is, it seems, no riskier than enjoying your daily mug of caffeine. But that’s the thing with everything we do – moderation in all things as they say.

That’s not to say that technology does not have a debilitating effect on us, even if we’re using it in a sensible fashion. Let’s face it; we all spend hours in front of screens now, be they workstations, home computers, laptops, netbooks, tablets and smartphones – all are putting an increasing strain on our poor peepers.

A recent survey has suggested that British people now spend more time looking at screens than they do sleeping, and over sixty per cent admitted they get withdrawal symptoms if they’re separated from their devices for any period of time. An additional forty per cent said they looked at their mobile phone before doing anything else after waking up. A quarter said they did it within three minutes of rising from their slumber.

Today’s children spend around half as much time looking at screens as they do being taught in classrooms too, so the problem clearly starts early on. And, with so many irresistible gadgets around us, the temptation to stare at a screen all day is becoming ever stronger. The desirability to own the latest electronic devices is also magnetic, too although not everybody would be prepared to go to the lengths of one young man in China who recently hit the headlines.

He was so obsessed about the Apple iPad 2 tablet that, desperate to be able to buy one, he found a black market dealer in vital organs and reportedly sold one of his kidneys for thousands of dollars. So, while technology may be great in a lot of respects, there’s no doubt that in some cases, it’s delivering rather more than we bargained for.
