Despite being firmly in the millennial generation, I am sometimes put off by technology. For example, the thought of changing printer ink gives me hives. This is the sole reason that, until very recently, I’d never owned a printer or photo printer. It’s too intimidating. I’m also terrible at remembering to order photos online, so when HP offered to let me test their portable, instant photo printer, I said yes. I still let it sit in the box for about a week, dubious that I would be able to set it up. I made my boyfriend help me, because his professional background is in 3D printing and computers, so I thought that made him a qualified printer set-up guy. Luckily, all I had to do was download the HP Sprocket app in the app store, which gave me very clear instructions. There was no hefty instruction pamphlet involved. I connected to the printer instantly through Bluetooth and did a test print, which all went seamlessly. I was able to access my camera roll from the app and easily select what I wanted to print — no boyfriend needed (though he did hold the printer and marvel at how lightweight it was). Within 10 minutes, I had printed four 2″ x 3″ photos I had been wanting to print for my frames for YEARS. And I haven’t even told you the best part yet — it doesn’t require any ink. The ink is embedded in the photo paper. What a world we live in.
