BOSTON -- Most of the excitement in the printer industry these days is found in the non-impact or page printer category, which includes laser and ink-jet printers.Hewlett-Packard Co. introduced a high-speed laser printer at the Seybold electronic publishing conference that began in Boston on Monday, and Apple Computer Inc. was said to be privately showing new printer technologies that will be introduced later this month for the Macintosh family."But not everyone needs the high print quality of the page printers, and not everyone can afford" to spend $750 to $6,000 for a laser, said Larry Jamieson, an analyst for BIS Strategic Decisions Inc.There are plenty of people who are willing to give up a little print quality -- but not too much -- for speed and savings.

Here was Bucky Lasek, the hometown draw and Baltimore's biggest action sports star, trying to decide which bum knee was more deserving of the blame: the left knee, the one suffering from cartilage issues that will cause him to have surgery tomorrow, or the right knee, which had to compensate its counterpart. "I paid the price today. It was bruised; it was tight. I had no power," said Lasek, 34, about the knee that bothered him in the skateboard vert finals of the Panasonic Open yesterday.

Have you flown on any long flights lately? I said, have you flown on any long flights lately? It's loud inside a jetliner: 80 to 95 decibels, depending on the plane and on where you sit. That's as loud as a power mower - and it doesn't even include the crying kids. After a few hours in the noisy skies, it's hard to hear yourself think - unless you've brought a pair of noise-canceling headphones along for the ride. I tested some noise-canceling headphones on a recent trip, and I'll never travel without them again.

Panasonic camcorder makes tape loading easy I tend to like Sony and Canon camcorders, but the Panasonic PV-DV73 MiniDV camcorder ($700) ranks right up there with some of its competitors in its price range. The DV73 comes with an 8-megabyte SD memory card (it uses a Multimedia memory card as well) for still photographs. The lens is a 10X optical lens for decent close-up work. And surprise of surprises, there is a built-in light under the lens that you can turn on in a pinch - something available only separately on its competitors.

After his run in yesterday's BMX park finals, defending champion Daniel Dhers thought his score wouldn't trump Michael Spinner's 92.67. Fortunately for Dhers, the judges disagreed and he took home the event's championship at the AST Dew Tour's Panasonic Open at the Camden Yards sports complex. Dhers' score of 93.17 overtook Spinner, and Dennis Enarson's 90.17 was good for third place. Despite being the defending Dew Cup champion and coming into the finals ranked first overall, Dhers said he didn't feel any additional pressure.

Yesterday is a day that Mathieu Therres will not soon forget. The Dundalk native had barely advanced to last night's AST Dew Tour Panasonic Open skateboard park final , finishing last among 12 qualifiers Thursday night. To say he stepped up his game in the finals would be an understatement. Therres, 21, finished fifth after an impressive performance in front of a rowdy crowd at the Camden Yards sports complex. Therres, who goes by the nickname "Gumbie," was as surprised as anyone that he did so well.

Bucky Lasek figures that on television, the amazing tricks he performs on a skateboard look just like the feats kids glimpse in Spider-Man cartoons. But in person? "They can see there's no strings," he said. That's why the Baltimore native is so excited that the ASPT Dew Tour is coming to his hometown in June. For years, local skating, BMX and motocross lovers have had to catch their favorite performers on television. But finally, they'll be able to watch stars such as Lasek soar above the parking lots around M&T Bank Stadium in person.

The iPod is the new necktie. A PlayStation Portable is the new cashmere scarf. A high-definition television is the new ... television. Since this century began, unisex gifts that plug in or run on batteries have been the hits of the holiday season. Colors and sizes matter little when it comes to MP3 players and digital cameras, and even the complexities have been eliminated so that Gramps has less trouble shooting an image than he has programming that VCR. (Remember VCRs?) For 2005, the choices are many.
