A Bluetooth Path To The Printer

Q. Is it possible to print wirelessly via a Bluetooth connection?

A. Bluetooth, the wireless technology named after a 10th time. Century Viking king who United Denmark and Norway, can be used in fact for the pressure-if you have the right equipment on both sides of the connection. Although it was sometimes confused with Wi-Fi wireless networking when first introduced, Bluetooth is intended to replace the cables for short range connections, such as those from a computer to a printer or a personal organizer, a laptop.

Print over Bluetooth, you need to have installed on both a computer and a printer with a Bluetooth card. Many new Laptops come with built-in Bluetooth, but you can also have a external Bluetooth adapter to buy. Several hardware companies used to simple Bluetooth Adapter, starting at about $50 that plugs in to the computer with a U. S. B. port, and you can slot and Bluetooth cards fit in a laptop card.

Many Palm and Pocket PC hand-held organizers now come with built-in Bluetooth as well, and the expansion cards are not available, add Bluetooth to older models.

Backing up Is Not Hard to Do

Q: I would like to be able to have my iTunes music files on a drive or something that isn't my iPod or a CD, in case something happens to my computer. What device should I use to backup, so I have to rerip all my CD's again?

A. External hard drives that connect to a computer, the U. S. B. or FireWire port, you can give a lot of space to make a backup copy of your iTunes music folder (where your music files are stored) and boot everything else on your computer. It is possible, a 200-gigabyte Online drive for as little as $200, the Web, and many drives come process with software that simplifies the backup.

If you have a lot of music in your iTunes music folder, you need to copy any a whole external hard drive to your collection. If you happen to be a subscriber .Mac (Apple costs $99-a-year collection of Mac OS X utilities), you can use the free Backup program to automatically copy just your iTunes music and playlists to the external hard drive.

These files can easily be added back in the iTunes library to a new or reformatted hard drive with the "Add to library" command under the iTunes file menu.
