Discounts on Software
A reader asks: "I need to purchase software for graphic design and word processing. But it's so expensive! Where can I find discounts on popular software packages?"

How to Buy a Laser Printer
If you need to print high-quality text and graphics in large volumes, a laser print beats most inkjets. Laser printers churn out pages much faster and the cost-per-page of supplies is lower. Be prepared to shell out more money up front for a laser printer, but not as much as you might think. I found one laser printer for just $30!

Here are some helpful tips to consider when buying a laser printer...

Cheap Gaming Computers: Build or Buy?
Gaming computers are more expensive than general desktop systems. That's because the frantic real-time action of gaming requires a highly responsive computer and high-performance video functionality.

Should you buy new, used, or build it yourself? Here's my advice on scoring your next gaming computer...

Internet Voicemail Services
You do everything else online... why not your voicemail too? If you're still using an old-school answering machine, online voicemail services let you combine the best features of voice messaging with the convenience of email and the Web. Individual users can increase productivity by handling voice messages online, and small businesses will benefit by presenting a professional sounding "virtual office" to callers.

Here are my reviews of the top internet voicemail services...

Two more recent trends involve RFID chips in passports, driver's licenses, social services benefits cards, and even debit cards. These applications have raised alarms among security researchers. Is there any truth to the rumor that hackers with special equipment can swipe your personal info as your walk by?

Here's the scoop on your personal security and RFID chips...
