The Best Tech Gadget I Bought This Year
The best gadget I bought this year was a $10 piece of plastic whose sole job is to prop up a piece of metal (my laptop). My point in saying this is, you don’t need the most elegantly designed items for your home office. In the space you make your living, you need reliable, comfortable, efficient tools – although, it’s a definite bonus if it looks good too.
It’s true that many consumers follow technology news because they’re interested in the latest gadgets or cutting-edge tech tools. Here’s a few do-dads that may not cure world hunger however, they could be a game changer in terms of making your life just a little bit easier.
– The need for data backup. If your computer’s hard drive is damaged, you risk losing all of your digital content. This is why most people back up their content on an external drive in addition to their computer’s internal drive. An external hard drive is a device which is plugged into your machine to give almost immediate storage space, without the need to open your computer’s internal storage and make upgrades.
– These days, everyone, no matter how big their business is, needs a printer or a multifunctional unit. Even students are beginning to realize the importance of a printer, especially color printers, to make prints from their desktops, laptops, phones etc. Even though many of the documents we now deal with are digital, you still need hard copies sometimes. That’s where the importance of a printer cannot be overstated. An all-in-one printer offers the same functionality in one piece of equipment, making it ideal for offices with significant space limitations.
– if you’re the type of person who makes frequent phone calls and wants the flexibility to get up from your computer while talking on the phone, a wireless USB headset will become your new best friend. Not only does a headset help you physically, it also increases your work productivity. Studies have shown that using a headset instead of holding the phone frees up a hand and can improve productivity by up to 43%
