Walmart Amazon Available in gray, pink or green, the Memobird is an adorable little thermal note-printer. Sarah Tew/CNET Can a printer be fun? It can when it’s a little internet-connected job that cranks out cute receipt-style notes and doesn’t need any ink.

That’s an extra $12 off the current price, which is already $10 off Amazon’s price. Update: Apparently shipping is not included in the price. My apologies for the error.See it at ZDNet AcademyAvailable in your choice of three colors, the Memobird is compact and portable, though it does require AC power. It uses no ink, instead relying on the same thermal technology as most cash register receipts. So there are no pricey ink cartridges — instead, the only consumables here are the special paper rolls. Fortunately, they’re pretty cheap. Here’s an eight-roll supply for just $12.99, for example. And a three-pack of assorted colors for $9.99. If you want adhesive paper, you can get three rolls of that for $9.99 as well. Update: The 8-roll option is now showing a price of $27.99. I’m not sure why it jumped so suddenly — and significantly. Share your voice The printer connects to both your phone and the internet via Wi-Fi. That means you can print locally to it (reminders, shopping lists and so forth), but also share it with friends and family. I could see giving a Memobird to the grandparents, then having everyone in the family send little notes and greetings.The app lets you create notes very easily, complete with any mixture of text, stickers, doodles and photos. You can also install templates for things like memos, lists and labels.Now for the bad news: It may take as long as two weeks to arrive. (Current expected-delivery range is Feb. 17 to 20.)I must admit, I really like this little thing. I’d be less enamored with it at $70 (or even $80, which was the price at Amazon a few days ago), but $48 works for me.Your thoughts?last_img read more

Try this sweet-and-sour chicken recipe that uses coconut oil, pineapple chunks, apple cider vinegar and toasted sesame seeds for a praiseworthy fusion of flavors.  17. Instant Pot Jamaican Jerk Pork Roast Eat this pork roast on its own; shred it and serve over a salad; slice and wrap in lettuce; or stuff it into a roasted poblano pepper… The possibilities are endless, but whatever option you choose, you’ll be sad when there’s no more of this paleo pork roast.  Paleo Instant Pot dessert recipes Paleo doesn’t have to equal restrictive.

Instant Pot Lemon Pudding Cups Lemon juice, raw maple syrup or honey, coconut milk and eggs converge in your Instant Pot to make a deceptively healthy pudding.

Instant Pot Paleo Chocolate Cake It’s decadent, it’s sweet and it’s oh-so-chocolatey — It’s Instant Pot paleo chocolate cake, which gives regular chocolate cake a run for its money. You’ll need a 6-inch aluminum cake pan, a steam rack and a sealing ring in addition to the nine paleo ingredients this cake takes.   instant-pot-chocolate-cake-paleoWho new paleo Instant Pot chocolate cake could look so good? Thriving on Paleo 20. Instant Pot Paleo Lemon Cake I don’t like the word moist, but I truly see no other accurate way to describe this paleo Instant Pot lemon cake. Dense, maybe, but definitely moist. And lemony and zesty. In other words, all the things you want a lemon cake to be.  21. Instant Pot Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Bread This soft, chewy and chocolatey paleo banana bread packs more protein than regular banana bread thanks to collagen peptides. It also uses stevia-sweetened chocolate chips, honey, avocado oil, cassava flour and pasture-raised eggs for a very paleo take on a traditional favorite.  Now playing: Watch this: Wellness Healthy eatinglast_img read more

Slow internet likely till Thursday

first_imgUntitled-4The government is purchasing 40 gbps bandwidth from France to make up for temporary bandwidth scarcity but shortfall will still remain.The Bangladesh Submarine Cable Company Limited (BSCCL) is buying the bandwidth to address the gap between demand and supply, caused by the three-day interruption in the operation of the first submarine cable.During this shutdown, which began early Tuesday, the nation is set to experience a scarcity of 230 gpbs (giga byte per second) bandwidth.So, internet service providers say, internet speed will be slow although officials claim there will be no problem in connectivity.The second submarine cable (SEA-ME-WE-5) is contributing 110 gbps, but the country still has a scarcity of 80gpbs bandwidth, according official records.The month-long deal with France, done via US firm Cogent, costs the BSCCL $20,000 (Tk 1.6 million).”So ensuring uninterrupted internet will not be a problem,” said BSCCL managing director Mashiur Rahman.However, internet service providers say the speed of internet will be slower these three days. As a result, general users will suffer. IT organisations that depend on high-speed internet will suffer the most.”Internet is like oxygen nowadays. If the internet speed gets slowed down, it affects the whole day’s output. Most of the things we do, especially keeping in touch with the foreign clients, are reliant on online clouds,” said Shafiul Alam, chief executive officer of Blancer, an online marketplace.BSCCL data show, the country has a daily demand of 470 gbps bandwidth.The two submarine cables contribute to 270 gbps while the remaining 200 are imported from India through International terrestrial cable (ITC).*The article, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Quamrul Hassan.last_img read more
