In Pictures: 10 great work tools we can't live without

The promise of consumerisation is workers choosing their own tools to get the job done. Here are our favorites.

iPhone 4S

I’m thankful for my Apple iPhone 4S, which I bought last December after living with a flip phone since 2001. I never had a data plan until my iPhone because I thought that it was good to be disconnected from the world when I was away from work. My iPhone changed that opinion. I’ve learned that rather than controlling my life, my iPhone allows me to work away from home while maintaining communications with the world. I turned off the audible alerts as a compromise. Now I am more independent while staying connected. I can work from anywhere. It’s a great tool that makes my work and personal lives better.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
