Our customers are coming in without masks, and it really seems appropriate. Another great cartoon penned by Gordon Prichard and posted on printplanet.com at this link.


The Right-to-Repair Movement
07/08/2021

(Top)



An article that just appeared on BBC News: Apple founder Steve Wozniak backs right-to-repair movement.

This is something that IFIXIT and other companies (including us) have believed in for a very long time. When you buy a computer, you should have the right to upgrade memory, replace the hard drive, or repair it if it breaks. It's very difficult to do if everything is soldered on the motherboard - it makes replacing the computer the only available choice. Great for the manufacturer, extremely bad for the buyer of the product. And, Apple has used and refined this strategy to bring them to where they are today.

Steve Wozniak, thank you for remembering your roots. Maybe things are getting better!

Garo Tchakatian
02/21/2021

(Top)
Garo Tchakarian has been helping Tastar in our ColorCentral demo room for the last few years. When he's in the demo room, he loves doing everything - running test prints on screen printing film, running demo prints for customers, testing various media (he used an awful lot of the Hahnemühle Hemp), working with color calibration and software RIPs and anything else that keeps him in touch with his roots in photography.

Garo is an accomplished photographer, and has recently scanned a few of his old negatives from photos that he took when he was in his home country. He was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and has been a photographer since 1975. During all of those years of creative activity, he has received over 15 international awards.

We would like to take this opportunity to display a few of these photographs. More of his photography can be found on his website.

iFixit's 2020 Top 5 Most Repairable Devices

Guess what isn't on this list - any current Apple computer. When you look at iFixit's Laptop Repairability Guide, new Mac notebooks are at the bottom of the list - generally at a 1 or 2 out of 10 maximum points. HP notebooks, by comparison, generally are at a 9 or 10 out of a 10 rating.

Apple, please make your computers repairable!
