Windows 7 was released in 2009 making it 8 years old
Its time to upgrade
There are 2 types of printers Ink and Laser, Lasers are mostly black and white and are cheaper to run, if you compare price per page. Ink printers are both black and white with colour.
Ink printers are more common in homes, but like ball point pens are subject to drying out. Especially if you don’t print often.
If your printer looks like below, then the cleaning process available via the printer LCD screen can be done. Most times this will fix the issue on the first try, if not you can repeat till needed.
Inks are generally expensive, so here are a few tips and tricks to save ink and money
Select the Black and White option before printing
Companies will price match if you mention online stores like, inkstation.com.au
Use alternative ink site like Raw Cartridges
If your just using your printer just for scanning, non genuine inks, will still work and keep your printer happy. (I’ve been using ink from Raw Cartridges for a while now. All Cartridges 5 for $22 for my Canon, normally $139)
Slow old computers = Hard drive Upgrades
If your computer is slow, getting old and you don’t have cash for a new one, consider a hard drive upgrade to SSD or SSHD
The size of SSD are finally price competitive, so consider an SSD upgrade to breathe a new life in to your computer Mac or Windows laptops or desktops.
SSD’s are like USB drives, really fast, a upgrade on average is $300

People always ask me about the cloud
What is the “cloud”? the Cloud is a space on the internet that you can store your digital data. So when you check your e-mail its stored on the “e-mail” server.
My general rules for cloud
Security is a must, long passwords i.e. over 8 characters, mix of numbers, letters, symbols
Never store anything on a cloud service that is not backed up on your local computer.
If the cloud service closed would you be ok to loose what what stored on the cloud?
