Canon Pixma MG3620 Wireless Printer review


The Canon Pixma MG3620 Wireless Printer is a affordable and easy to use wireless printer.  That is after you get it connected to the network in your home.  I walk you through the app setup and some quick features in the review video above.  As someone that does not print often, the times I do want to is when I am mobile.

Packaging
The printer comes well contained with the power cable and two ink cartridges.  No cable for a direct PC connection is included (for those that want to use the Canon Pixma MG3620  that way.  It is meant to be a total wireless solution for all your devices.  The entire experience is driven by the Canon mobile app found free for both iOS and Android called Selphy.  We will talk about the application more below.

The Printer Controls
Being that the Canon Pixma MG3620 is an under $50 (at time of writing) wireless printer, I did not expect a ton of features and controls on the physical printer itself.  As you can see in the below image you have no LCD screen and a handful of buttons.  Continue Reading here" Canon Pixma MG3620 Wireless Printer review" »

DB2 on Cloud is renaming and something else is now Db2 on Cloud??

IBM sent a very confusing email about DB2 on Cloud and renaming. I will just leave this here
On June 22 a number of products will be renamed in our Db2 family of products
That's right, Db2
"DB2 on Cloud" will be renamed "Db2 Hosted" and "dashDB for transactions" will be renamed "Db2 on Cloud.

Now notice the DB becomes Db in the new name. I am not sure if that was a typo or on purpose to differentiate the products. Either way taking a product name and swapping a new product into it already confused me.
