I need a hardware recommendation - My uncle needs a new printer. Here's the facts: He's somewhat technology adverse. He's in his early 80's, very retired, mostly blind, no longer can write. He's also 1700 miles away, so I cannot cruise over for the evening and install and fix things. He's the president of his neighborhood association in Tucson, so he's incredibly busy. He would like to print in color, scan and copy, and needs a printer that can print envelopes (he can't write, remember.)
He's using what is reported to be an HP 6300 and no longer has the patience for its eccentric behavior.
The solution must be simple, reliable, cost-effective. Any recommendations?

Here's a quick question:
A printer friend asked me for some advice; What are some of your proven strategies and techniques that you use to convince a client that strategy (and paying for strategy) is more important than just a tactical production of a marketing device? A client wants a direct marketing piece, but needs more than just a marketing piece to be successful. The printer is having difficulties in convincing their clients that marketing is more than just a mailer, and strategy is the important first step.
Advice? Anyone? Buehler?

Depending on the type of client I sometimes can use the sports metaphor to help enlighten the need for a solid strategy and execution. Football teams have playbooks (brand guidelines) and gameplan (campaign) for each team (demo) they compete against (for). They have certain players (devices) that fill specific roles (channels) to increase their chances of victory (sales). All are components that work together towards success. Etc.

Wow, Arizona fired Stoops tonight. I always thought, in the Pac12, that Arizona was the team to beat this year.

Because everyone was doing it.

Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory didn't quite throw a pitch as well as Max.

Mach 20 - New York to LA in 12 minutes. I'm not a rocket scientist, but I still think that's kinda fast.

Here's a sign in front of home that, I think, is undergoing foreclosure. The sign adds great curb appeal. I guess they were afraid of somebody hitting the family pets.
