Great Deals On Printer Ink Cartridges With ComboInk
 

We live in a thoroughly modern world, where electronic information is very much King and everything else is old-school or outdated…..that being said, we seem to have been working towards the ‘paperless office’ for as long as I can remember and we’re still not there yet! I think that even the most die-hard techno-cherishers would have to admit that we will always need hard copies of certain items and that this will never change.

Even the most modern office still resounds to the whir and hum of the photocopier and while everyone can accept that the photocopier is a necessary addition, we don’t have to accept extortionate costs for replacement parts, paper or toner.

One way we can save money on these necessary items, is to buy them from a company completely focussed on this specialism and with the pedigree to match.

ComboInk specialise in bringing the very best deals on printer ink, toner and photo paper to its clients without the distraction of dealing in anything else.

Every major brand, printer and cartridge type are stocked and can be searched for with infinite ease just by utilising the user-friendly drop down boxes on the website. Best of all ComboInk’s products are available at prices significantly below those common to the market. By buying its stock in high volumes directly from the manufacturers, basing themselves in Portland so that they can exploit the sales-tax-free state and only selling online so as to reduce the usual operating costs, ComboInk can offer its products at hugely reduced prices.

They even offer you deals to further wet your appetite. How about a:

1-Year Money Back Guarantee that’s coupled with a Low Price Guarantee

12% off in their Back-To-School Sale by utilising the promo code: BTS12, (valid until 15th September 2012)

A chance to win a $50 Gift Card merely by liking them on Facebook

Free Shipping on orders over $50

 

ComboInk even ticks the sustainability box by utilising re-manufactured cartridges that are both eco-friendly and cost effective to save you money and help to save the environment.

Need replacement ink…..not really a tough decision where to go is it?

Jay Leno Offers to Work for Free To Save Jobs – Executives Say No Thanks…
 

Jay Leno Offers to Work for Free To Save Jobs – Executives Say No Thanks…

Did anyone catch the story about Jay Leno offering to work for free to save the jobs of those working at The Tonight Show at NBC.

It would be interesting to see why these executives thought it would set a “bad precedent”, currently Jay earns $26 million. That would mean that he could have saved many of the 20 who reportedly lost their jobs.

I commend Leno for offering to work for free. I am sure he will do what he can to help those affected get back on their feet.

Executives with Comcast which now owns NBC need to pay closer attention to the effects of these actions and their “explanations” of course there are stockholders, but these are people and families. For the countless executives earning 6 and 7 digit incomes, those are the ones that should be taking pay cuts. Surely they should accept part of the blame for what is happening to NBC. How will this affect future programming and shows coming into the new season, is yet to be seen. Hopefully there will be no other layoffs.

The rumors are swirling about what will happen with Leno as his contract is set to expire Sept 2013. There’s a good chance we will see Jimmy Fallon fill the slot.

Stay tuned as late night enters the next chapter.

New Apple iPhone 5 To Be Released September 21, 2012

At this time Verizon and AT&T have blocked out any vacation requests by employees.  In the past this has indicated a big event such as a release of the Apple iPhone.

In other Apple related news, the patent win by Apple over Samsung of over $1 billion has boosted Apple stock to all time high of over $680 per share, currently trading at about $675. The market cap of Apple is now over $633 billion!

Several analyst have set new targets for Apple at over $800.

Apple has issued its first dividend in 17 years, to be issued in the fourth quarter, and there has been some discussion of a stock split which would be a way Apple could potentially be included in the Dow Average.

An Apple stock split would be huge.

Best Contact Lens Travel Suggestions for beginners
 

Traveling out of town or abroad requires a great deal of preparation. From booking the flights to figuring out the accommodation, there is a lot you have to get through. In the midst of all that commotion, one looks to find the maximum convenience possible. One of the areas where people usually look to avoid hassle is when choosing between their contact lenses and eyeglasses. Taking care of their contact-lenses is a big responsibility which is why most people prefer to take their spectacles instead. Even people who normally wear contact lenses don’t take them so that they don’t have to look after them.

No longer do you have to leave your contact lenses at home when you are traveling. If you have gotten your lenses recently and are looking at traveling in the near future, there are some great contact lens travel suggestions for you to follow.

Remove Your Lenses Pre-Flight

You have to remove your contact lenses before you board the plane. Unless your eyesight is very weak, you won’t need glasses on the plane but it is handy to keep a pair of eyeglasses just in case. The reason why you cannot wear your lenses on the flight is because the air inside the aircraft is dry. As a result, the lenses also get dry and you will be very uncomfortable if you keep them on. The problem will only grow worse if you plan to take a nap on the plane. If you want to read or watch a movie, then your spectacles should be fine. However, no contact lenses on the plane. Keep them in their case.

Buy Travel-Sized Contact Lens Solutions

The airlines’ are very strict regarding the policy of carrying liquids on the plane. This is another reason why you should leave your contact lenses in the luggage. The way to get around this is buying travel-sized contact lens solutions. They fall under the limit and you can take them with you. The authorities can only confiscate liquid containers that are beyond the prescribed limit which is not the case with travel-sized eye care products. Though it is possible to buy the things you need upon reaching your destination but you should be prepared in case you don’t find the brand you are looking for.

Put the Solutions in Your Carry-on Luggage

What if your luggage gets lost? Lost luggage is a major problem facing air travelers across the world. You can get stuck at your destination without your luggage only to discover you are going to receive after a week. If you put your contact lens-solutions in the luggage, then it means you will have to do without that for the time being. You would have to wear your eyeglasses till the time you get your luggage back. This is why it is a good idea to put your contact lens solution and any other products you might use to clean or use them in your carry-on luggage so that you have them on you when you reach your destination.

Buy an Extra Pair of Contact Lenses

To avoid going through the hassle of lost contact lenses, it makes sense to buy an extra pair. When you get your new contact lenses, tell the optician to give you an extra pair in case you need to use them. However, one thing you need to keep in mind is that you shouldn’t put both pairs of contact lenses in the same bag or place. In that case, if you lose one, you lose them both. As a precaution, keep one pair with you on the flight and one in your baggage.

Bring Your Prescription with You

This is a requirement only if you are traveling abroad. In case you lose your lenses and your glasses and need to get new ones, you would have to show the prescription to get new ones. Traveling within the country doesn’t require you to carry prescriptions as you can refer to the optician via phone or email.

These are some of the best contact lens travel suggestions for beginners. To prevent further eye problems and deterioration of vision, the GetLenses website sells Focus Dailies Toric for you. Take care of your contact lenses on your trips to avoid putting pressure on your eyes or having to wear eyeglasses.
