Save big on monitors, printers, software, and more in HP’s Labor Day sale

The Labor Day sales are rolling out and we found a few nice deals over at HP’s Labor Day blowout. The computer maker’s sale is active now, and while we weren’t too keen on many of the laptop and desktop deals, we loved a few of the deals for smaller electronics and software. Here are our top picks from the sale.

First up, we’ve got the HP Sprocket 2nd Edition Photo Printer for $90, instead of the usual $130. This is a tiny printer that lets you print 2-by-3 photos directly from your smartphone via Bluetooth. There’s also LED lighting that shows when the device is printing, and the lights are assigned to specific users so you can see whose photo is being spit out.

Next up we’ve got the HP 24uh 1080p display for $110. This is

The best monitor arms for desk-mounting your display

If you spend any time working on your computer at a desk, a monitor arm is an essential piece of equipment that will streamline your workflow and keep your space ergonomic and tidy. Not only can an arm lift your display off a surface, freeing the desktop up for other uses and reducing wire clutter, but it also brings the screen to a comfortable height and allows you the flexibility to pivot and view it from a number of angles. Mounting your monitor on an arm also makes your space easier to clean, and the result is an undeniably sleek and integrated look without the bulky, conspicuous factory base. The best part of all is that they’re incredibly easy to install on just about every monitor out there.

Beware of computer vision syndrome amid the COVID-19 pandemic – Health

The COVID-19 epidemic has been going on for six months in Indonesia. The government has implemented policies such as large-scale social restrictions (PSBB), physical distancing, contact tracing and the establishment of emergency hospitals to overcome and reduce the spread of the coronavirus. 

Due to the pandemic, we have been forced to spend a lot more time at home, both for school and/or work. Inevitably, the use of gadgets continues to increase. In the latest research by GlobalWebIndex, the COVID-19 pandemic is causing changes to digital behavior. Based on a survey of internet users aged 16-64 years old conducted in 17 countries in March through April, there was a significant increase in people’s use of digital media, especially television, laptops and social media activities. Indonesia ranks third in the use of social media in the Asia Pacific.

An increase in the use of digital media means an increase in screen time.

Republic of Gamers unleashes world’s fastest gaming monitor

After first revealing the world’s fastest gaming monitor at CES 2020 back in January, Asus has today given full details, pricing and availability for the new ROG Swift, which boasts a 360-Hz refresh rate for “silky-smooth gameplay and ultra-realistic visuals.”

In the professional gaming world, every millisecond counts, and Asus believes that its latest envelope-pushing ROG Swift PG259QN will give top esports players an edge over the competition.

The monitor features a 24.5-inch Full HD (1.920 x 1,080) IPS panel with a 360-Hz native refresh rate (though it supports 240 Hz and 144 Hz too) and 1-ms gray-to-gray response time, 400 cd/m2 brightness, is HDR10 compatible and can display up to 16.7 million colors. It also comes with a built-in Nvidia G-Sync processor for the promise of tear- and stutter-free onscreen action without any input lag.

Grab Acer’s 24-inch 1080p monitor on sale for $100 for Costco members

The Acer K243Y bi 24-inch 1080p IPS monitor is down to $99.99 at Costco. You’ll need to be a Costco member to secure that price, otherwise Costco will charge you an extra 5%. Still, that’d be worth it at this price because the monitor normally goes for around $200. This is a unique model, but Acer has a ton of similar displays around this size with these specifications and you can see similar versions go for $200 at other retailers like Walmart.

For $100 you’re not getting the best of the best, but you’re also getting pretty darn good stuff. I really think this is a great screen if you’re someone who’s working with a tight budget for your computer build or you need a solid second monitor to use. Maybe you went all out for a primary monitor loaded with all the trimmings and just need something on the

Samsung DeX 101: Turn a Galaxy phone or tablet into your primary computer

The promise of using your phone as your primary computer is a reality and with flagship Samsung phones priced at more than $1,000 using your phone as your computer may be a way to save money.

Modern smartphones are more powerful than the computers used just a few years ago, but over the past decade, we have seen unsuccessful attempts to turn our handheld devices into computers. Recall the Palm Foleo in 2007, the Redfly Mobile Companion in 2009, or the Motorola Atrix in 2011.
