I know enough already on printers. I guess I get interested in something and can’t let go. I mentioned in a past blog that one way to get rid of printer cables is to get a Bluetooth printer. That is easy to say and easy to find but most of us don’t have Bluetooth in our computers unless maybe we have a fairly new laptop. Well don’t despair, there is a solution. The USB Bluetooth adapter is alive and available from TrendNet. Now you can buy any Bluetooth enabled printer and stick it anywhere you want within 30 feet of your computer. No more cable clutter, no more noise beside your desk just a foot loose and fancy free printer across the room for only $24.58 at Amazon, plus free shipping if you can find something else to get over $25.00. This isn’t a paid blog but if you buy one from Amazon, I will get a commission, not enough to buy this myself unless way bunches of you buy one.
TRENDnet's TBW-102UB Bluetooth USB Adapter allows you to make short-range wireless connections between your computer and Bluetooth enabled devices such as Cellular Phone, PDA, and Computer. It is compact and portable, eliminating the need for cables and physical connections between electronic devices.

Simply plug the USB Adapter into the USB port and enjoy the freedom and flexibility of Bluetooth wireless technology.

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!
