Last paragraph, first sentence, "Bluetooth is..."
Should read: "Bluetooth is a wireless standard that works best within a very close range --usually about 35 feet..."

Bluetooth is not an infrared technology. The range given (10 feet) is not accurate for Class 2 Bluetooth technology, to which this refers.

The first sentence, "Bluetooth is..."
Should read: "Bluetooth is a wireless standard that uses radio waves in the 2.4 to 2.485 GHz range."

The second sentence, "It's limited..."
Should be clarified. Class 2 Bluetooth technology does not require line of sight to operate. However, performance is greatly enhanced when the devices have line of sight to each other.

Under "Communication Types": The second to last entry, "Infrared," incorrectly identifies Bluetooth as an infrared wireless technology. Bluetooth uses radio waves in the 2.4 to 2.485 GHz range. Class 2 Bluetooth technology does not require an unblocked line of sight to operate. However, performance is greatly enhanced when the devices have line of sight to each other.

4 & 7 146 & 211 Clarification
On page 146, under "Blank Pages," shaking the toner cartridge is the suggested method for double-checking that the cartridge actually contains toner.

On page 211, under "Printer Safety," first bullet, the author warns against shaking a toner cartridge.

Vigorous shaking of a toner cartridge is not recommended, for the reason given on pg. 211. However, gently shaking the cartridge in order to determine how much toner it contains should not cause toner to spill.
