Long gone are the days when you had to be tied to a desk to get anything done. We work in bed, at Starbucks, on the couch, heck even in the bathroom. My favorite place is my husband’s big comfy leather chair.
So with comfort covered, we still have a problem – power. And while a 3-foot power cord is fine for some, others need a little more. Like 9-feet. Oh, that sounds nice.
Wireless keyboards have become a must in offices of geeks everywhere. Even if you use a laptop, a docking station and wireless keyboard are great accessories to make you feel more comfortable – and extra geeky.
But if you’ve every run out of AA batteries in the middle of working, you know how frustrating using a wireless keyboard can be. How about a keyboard that runs on solar power? Read more
Whether you’re a pen and paper person or you prefer the latest technology, it’s still a good idea to have one to do list laying around to quickly jot things down. Smart phones freeze up, the battery dies on your tablet or you don’t feel like walking all the way upstairs to get your laptop.
This To Do List Stamp is easy. It’s a do-it-yourself to do list that only requires a piece of paper and a pen.
Sitting at your computer all day long means that there is a good chance you’ll make a mess of your desk. Whether it’s crumbs from the sandwich you just stuffed into your mouth or just dust, a dirty desk affects your productivity.
When it comes to being organized, you’re either a tech person or a pen and paper person. Oddly enough, I happen to be both. I keep a running task list on my phone with Astrid Tasks (LOVE their new update, btw). But I also write down the next few days of tasks on a post-it so I can visually see what needs to be done.
If you’re a paper person, this notebook has a big advantage over any smart phone or app. It’s waterproof. Read more
Many of us use our smart phone as our primary camera to take pictures. And let me just say that one should only do this if they have a quality camera on their phone. If I see one more blurry photo taken by a BlackBerry on Facebook, I am going to scream.
The question is, what do you do with those phone pics? So many of us just leave them on there, never to see the light of day. But the iPhone Photo Cube Printer makes it easy to print your photos. Only the good, non-blurry ones! Read more
You know that there are times when you’re on your iPhone and you think, wow it would be nice to type on a full size keyboard right now. And then there may be times when you’re on your desktop and think, I would love a touchscreen to control my computer.
When you think inbox, you think of that dorky male voice announcing You’ve got mail! Hopefully that’s just a memory of your first inbox experience and not your current email account. Because if you still use AOL, we’ll have to mercilessly make fun of you. Yes, even you mom.
But remember those metal trays for your desk that are the original inboxes? Well they’ve gotten a bit of a makeover. Read more
How many times have you been in the shower, singing some Lady Gaga, when a great idea pops into your head? Ok, maybe not Gaga, but what is it about the sound of water and the smell of shampoo that gets the creative juices flowing?
While I have been guilty of using my daughter’s Crayola bath markers once or twice, I’ve always thought there has to be a better way. And with AquaNotes, now there is.
After I purchased a Zagg Invisible Shield for my phone – which is awesome by the way – I received an email for the Zagg Sparq 2.0. And if you’ve ever owned an electronic device (you know, if you’re currently breathing), you’ve had a battery die and you’ve searched high and low for a charging solution that works best for you.
The Zagg Sparq 2.0 charger is definitely something that peaked – or “sparqed” – my interest. Read more
If I could spend my day looking at pictures of amazingly decorated home offices, I would. Of course then my daughter would starve and my house would go into foreclosure.
But I still frequent The Office Stylist every chance I get. Recently they featured the home office of Elsa over at Casa Greer – a blog about tackling DIY projects to turn the Greer’s house into a home. Read more
How many times have you said to yourself I can’t forget to bring that tomorrow. And how many times have you forgotten it?
You have a few choices – you can bring the needed items out to your car in your pajamas, you can create a pile by your door hoping your dog doesn’t do anything with it, or you can tie a piece of string around your finger. As an alternative you can try an easy solution which is also a very cheap solution – a door knob organizer Read more
We recently featured the Double USB, which would help those of us who can never seem to correctly plug in a USB cord. And just when you thought that was the best idea, something new and better may be out there soon.
And it has recently won the International Forum Concept Award – the Infinite USB. Read more
You decorate your office and your desk, why not decorate your laptop?
But how? You can always pretend to be cool and strategically place hip, witty bumper stickers to make it look like you haphazardly placed them there without a second thought – even though you totally planned it. Read more
You’ve done it, we’ve all done it, I actually did it just yesterday – you go to plug in a USB cord and you plug it in the wrong direction. And if you’re not careful, you can actually do damage to the USB head.
Well necessity is the motherhood of invention and someone has come up with a concept design for a USB that can be plugged in correctly on either side. Read more
