A tiny (possibly the world’s smallest) printer that fitsinto a jacket pocket and is designed for printing on the move from a laptop orpalmtop computer. The device uses A7 (74x105mm) thermal paper that feeds inautomatically from its own cassette so you don’t have to handle individualsheets each time (the thermal paper is easy to handle and shouldn’t curl).M-Print connects to devices via USB or infrared (using the IrDA infrared datastandard) and is currently compatible with Windows and PocketPC operating systems(Apple Macintosh and Palm drivers are to follow). It prints four sheets perminute and has a built-in lithium battery. Do I really need one? We all like to talk up the idea of a paperlessoffice, but equally have to admit there are times when only hard copy will do.If you’re driving to a meeting and need to print out a quick agenda or cribnotes for yourself, for instance, m-Print makes it possible. While there areplenty of printers that can connect to laptops and are designed to be ‘mobile’,they are not really practical when it comes to carrying them around in a laptopbag. M-Print is a tool truly built for the road warrior. The Windows driver isable to reduce A4-sized pages on the screen down to A7, so it’s practical forall sorts of temporary documentation. You can also feed in adhesive labels andrestickable notes. With networking (see page 76) firmly in mind this week,running out of business cards need never be a barrier to making good contacts,as you can print out your details on demand.
