HP adds Officejet models, new SOHO support

Hewlett-Packard launched two new HP Officejet printers for small and home offices (SOHOs) this week at the U.S. Small Business Administration's National Small Business Week in Washington D.C.

The HP Officejet 6000 series will list from $89 to $119 and include embedded wired and wireless networking and automatic two-sided printing. The series is expected to be available in June. The HP Officejet 7000 Wide Format Printer is the company's first foray into wide format printers with individual inks and will retail for $229. It is due in July. Both printers will carry the Energy Star rating.

HP has also added new Officejet Care Packs to its overall Total Care support portfolio along with wireless printer installation services.

HP last month pledged renewed focus on SMBs, which it, and virtually all other tech vendors, sees as a potential bright spot in an overall dreary economy. IBM also used the SBA's National Small Business Week to launch an appliance bundling Intuit's QuickBooks Enterprise with IBM middleware and hardware.

McAfee to buy Solidcore Systems

McAfee Inc. plans to bolster its whitelisting capabilities by acquiring Solidcore Systems Inc. in a $47 million deal. Solidcore's technology ensures that only good executable code can run on protected systems and could help secure embedded systems such as ATMs and point-of-sale devices, according to SearchSecurity.com.
