Ask.com has launched a special version of its search engine site devoted to raising awareness and funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a nonprofit breast cancer organization.

Between now the end of the year, Ask.com will donate up to $0.50, up to a total of US$100,000, for every person who chooses the special Ask.com for the Cure homepage skin and answers breast-cancer related questions, the company said Monday.

People can find the Ask.com for the Cure version of the search engine by clicking on a tab in the main Ask.com site or by going directly to Ask.com/cure.

"We expect this to have a large impact," said Scott Garell, president of Ask Networks.

The initiative creates a win-win situation for all parties involved, raising funds to help find a cure for breast cancer and helping educate people about the disease. "We think everybody wins with this program," Garell said.

In addition, Ask.com, an operating business of IAC, has pledged to invest at least $1 million by the end of next year through this program and sponsorship of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure series, he said.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
