Cloud Printing Using Your Own Printer

One big question everyone had with the Chromebook was printing. Well folks I’m here to tell you it’s no big deal.

Google now has developed the software to print from just about any device to any printer that is setup to accept print jobs from that device. Here is the link at Google that explains everything.

https://www.google.com/cloudprint/learn/index.html, I was able to setup my photo printer to accept prints jobs from my Android tablet and it worked like a charm.

Once I get the Samsung Chromebook I will make sure one of our home printers, most likely the Black and White laser printer, for print jobs.

They also have printers on the market that can be used as a stand-alone printer requiring no computer. I just may get one of those.

Ain’t technology grand?

What Is Multi-Touch Screen

While showing examples of a daily email specials one of the items was a Dell laptop with a multi-touch screen. Multi-Touch is exactly what you do with your smartphone and tablet. This technology is now part of Windows 8.1.

User Questions

We spent most of the remaining time answering questions. It had been very encouraging that members are bringing in their questions. Keep them coming.

March Meeting

I will bring in my newly acquired Samsung 11” Chromebook and we will discuss what can be done with this machine as far as photography is concerned. I will continue to show one or two Youtube videos at the beginning of the meeting. We will discuss ISO. What is ISO? Maybe more slideshows? Anyone have some travel or family pictures to share? How about photos of children?

PS: You have any ideas?

Where the Pictures From The Main Meeting Go To Die

Note: I am using a new Web location for the photos I take at the meeting. I now upload the photos I take to Microsoft OneDrive and flickr. A link will be put here every month to the folder location with the current month’s photos.
