KELLNER: Print vs. digital is 'paper or plastic' of publishing

There are two ways to buy an issue of National Review magazine: You can subscribe to the print edition, or to the digital edition. But buying print no longer gets you the digital version, as I learned last week. Published September 28, 2010

KELLNER: Digital medical records make sense

Say what you will about this year's round of health reform legislation, one idea nestled in much of the talk makes, I believe, a colossal amount of sense: Digitizing a person's medical records and making that information available to the patient and other health providers.

KELLNER: Do accessorize that iPod

I'll confess to being as guilty of "accessory cupidity" as the next person. There are things one just has to have, I believe, in order to be a properly outfitted user. Published September 7, 2010

KELLNER: Accessories, after the Mac

It's often an afterthought, but the accessory items that come with your computer or are added on after purchase can become quite important. Apple Inc. recently launched a couple of products well worth considering, albeit only if you're a Mac user. Published August 24, 2010

KELLNER: Let there be Lightroom

The latest release of Adobe Corp.'s Lightroom photo management and manipulation software. It's called Lightroom 3 (and version 3.2 is waiting in the wings) and it's well worth the $299 retail price if you're at all serious about doing neat stuff with your pictures. Published August 10, 2010

KELLNER: Some intelligent choices in smart phones

According to research released Monday by the Nielsen Co., "Multipurpose smartphones that allow users to access the Web and e-mail as well as run thousands of apps and share text and picture messages are now 25 [percent] of the U.S. mobile market, up from 23 [percent] in the last quarter."

KELLNER: New HP printer evokes yearnings of yore

Comes now a wireless inkjet printer from Hewlett-Packard that should, by rights, be vastly better than its predecessors. It is very, very good, but it falls down on a couple of points. Published July 27, 2010

KELLNER: Steve Ballmer's slate dreams

Steve Ballmer, Microsoft Corp.'s CEO, is one of the brightest people I've ever encountered in computing. His comments Monday at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center certainly garnered attention: Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system, Mr. Ballmer declared, will soon power a line of devices that will compete with Apple's iPad.

KELLNER: 2010 smaller MacBook Pro travels well

I've just acquired a new Apple Inc., MacBook Pro, a "unibody" portable from Apple that promises good things for the next three years or so I hope to use it. Published June 22, 2010

KELLNER: Consider an iPad for Dad, along with accessories

The rest of the world (and a good portion of the U.S.) may be preoccupied with the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, but for many in this country, another date looms large on the horizon: Father's Day, which is Sunday. Published June 15, 2010

KELLNER: Will the FCC allow the cell-phone signal booster?

Here's a question: Will the Federal Communications Commission allow the widespread use of a device that can make it easier for Americans to use cell-phone technology, with fewer dropped calls and stronger signals? Published June 1, 2010

KELLNER: Moving is easier when you organize

Whether it's graduation, the recent frenzy of home buying (sales in April, it was reported the other day, were up dramatically as the tax credit deadline neared), or just the natural migration so many of us undertake, moving from one place to another is almost a national pastime. The spring and summer seasons appear to be prime relocation times. Published May 25, 2010

KELLNER: IPhone goes on the road for navigation

The trip came up quite suddenly, and there was a timeline involved: I had to get somewhere near Lancaster, Pa., and do so rather quickly. Fortunately, this was on a weekend, so I wouldn't have to deal with workday traffic. Published May 19, 2010

KELLNER: Toshiba NB-305 mini a good gift for grads, dads

It's small, you can read books and watch movies on it, has lots of storage, a wireless Internet connection and a built-in keyboard. You can get one for less than $400, and it's a lightweight companion whose battery life should easily handle a cross-country, or even trans-Atlantic flight. Published May 12, 2010

Reagan likely to be put on 3rd stamp

Ronald Reagan is expected to "three-peat" as the subject of a U.S. commemorative postage stamp on the occasion of his birth's centennial next year. Published May 11, 2010
