    Question wireless solution
    I am planning to make a switch from a PC to a Macbook (yay!). However my husband has a new PC laptop.

    We would like to be able to share a printer, scanner and external hard drive (for backups).

    I have looked at the Airport Extreme which solves the printer and hard drive issue but does not allow us to share the scanner without physically plugging into it.

    I have looked at the Belkin Network USB Hub which would work for all three perhipherals but is not Mac compatible (PC only).

    Is there a solution that is both Mac and PC compatible?

    Yup, check this out:

    It basically tricks your computers into thinking that the USB devices that are connected to it, are actually hooked up via a local USB hub. It's a little pricey, but works well and has full Mac and Windows support.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
