Green Cloud Is A Virtual Printer Driver To Save Paper & Ink Costs


GreenCloud Printer is a virtual printer driver that helps you save money on your daily print jobs. With the help of this application, you can save up to 33% of paper, ink and toner costs, without reducing paper quality (as claimed by the developer). It completely integrates with installed applications as a virtual printer, and allows reviewing printing jobs, removing unwanted pages, grouping pages per sheet of paper and printing documents as PDF. Furthermore, you can directly send your documents to GoogleDocs, Dropbox, Evernote or Minus.

To begin, select Green Cloud from the printing options of an application, and click Print.


Each application may offer a unique user interface, as every printer driver works differently and provides advanced options for most users. By using GreenCloud Printer as your default (virtual) printer, you can avoid wasting paper, because you can remove blank pages or a page with only a few lines of text (e.g. 2 lines, which may be headers or footers of webpages). When you click Print, a new window opens that provides the option to select a printer, remove unwanted pages, save the document as PDF, or to send it to email, Dropbox, Google Docs or Minus. To send it to the aforementioned web services, you’ll have to first set up their configuration parameters via Configure option. You can switch preview layout from Options (One page per sheet, Two pages per sheet or Four p[ages per sheet). Further options enable you to select the number of copies, toggling Grayscale and Print two sided options, as well as select Ink saving preference (small, medium or high).

to select relevant option, go to the General section (in Settings), and select Remove pages with little content option. You can also get the cost that will be incurred for each print from the Stats tab. The Advanced tab provides an additional option to use Direct 2D display (requires application restart).

GreenCloud Printer seems to be a combination of PDF writers like CutePDF Writer and paper saving virtual printers like iPrint. Hence, it provides the benefit of saving paper, creating PDF documents from almost any kind of application, and instantly sending a document to Dropbox, Minus, Evernote or an email address. For more information regarding the usage of GrenCloud Printer, check out the developer’s video below.

GreenCloud Printer works on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7, and supports both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 

Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…
