Little Printer Turns Your Digital Life Into A Mini-Newspaper

BERG Cloud Little Printer

The Little Printer from BERG Cloud is a compact, inkless, thermal printer that uses wi-fi to connect to the web and print out a timely, beautiful mini-newspaper based on subscriptions that you set up using your smartphone.

When you’re ready, just hit the print button, tear off the latest ‘issue’ and take it with you, giving you information on the go and turning your digital life into an analog journal.

Check out the demo video below for a preview:

The device won’t be ready until 2012, but you can give them your email on the BERG Cloud site to get notified of when they’re ready to ship.

…Gizmodo has written a Pirate’s Code?

Pirate's Code

Gizmodo has proposed a Pirate’s Code for those that travel the murky waters of the torrent world, and they’re a rather honest look at the way most pirates of the digital seas think about what they do.

Check out the eight articles to see if you agree, and you’ll be treated to words of wisdom like:

  • Ye wouldn’t be a pirate if ye didn’t download Photoshop. But for the office, such manners are frowned upon. Make your employer pay so that others may play.
  • TV is to be downloaded, movies are to be attended when a man returns to shore.
  • Every man shall upload half of what he downloads, with the saints filling in the rest.
  • A man shall steal as much music as he needs to quench his thirst, assuming that he supports the band by attending concerts and buying t-shirts.

…Drawminos are online dominos?

Drawminos

Drawminos are digital dominos that you can set-up and play with just like the real thing, only these won’t all tumble and fall if your hand happens to twitch.

Though not quite as addicting as Line Rider, they’re still fun to toy around with, and you can look through the Favorites if you’re in need of a bit of inspiration.

…Zinio is giving away free magazines?

Zinio Read Green Initiative

Edit: This promotion is no longer active.

Zinio takes many of your favorite magazines and republishes them digitally, so to help spread the word about their rather environmentally friendly service, they created the Read Green Initiative to give away free magazine subscriptions to anyone that asks.

For a limited time, you can get a year-long subscription to magazines like Men’s Journal, Shutterbug, Road and Track, Popular Science, Outside and even Penthouse for little more than an email address.

In addition, they don’t take your mailing address or ask you to put down a credit card ‘deposit’, so there’s no need to worry about canceling your subscription at the end of the year in order to avoid getting charged.

If you’d like to preview what the service is like, just select from one of the magazines below, and if you’d like to sign up for your own free magazine subscription, just visit the site and select from the available options. (They’re first come, first served, so grab the one you want quickly before it’s gone.)

…Dell’s Studio Hybrid packs an environmental punch?

Dell Studio Hybrid

Dell’s new Studio Hybrid line of computers is a rather interesting offering.

Designed to be an “anywhere-you-want-it-desktop”, the pint-sized PC comes in six colors, as well as bamboo, features an ultra-compact design with Intel mobile technology performance, a slot-load DVD, HDMI, digital/analog TV tuner, and optional Blu-ray for home entertainment duties.

In addition, the Dell Hybrid helps to preserve the planet as Dell’s greenest and most power-efficient consumer desktop (75% less printed documentation, 70% less power usage, Energy Star 4.0 compliant, and packaging made form 95% recyclable materials).

A good-looking computer that’s good for the environment and performs too?

What’s not to love?
