In Pictures: 8 productivity gadgets you didn't know you needed

Looking to work better, faster and stronger? Consider the road less traveled and look at these eight devices.

Transporter Private-cloud Appliance Thinking of giving up cloud storage after reading about the pervasive NSA spying? Turns out you may not have to with the Transporter, a novel network-attached device that lets users easily and cheaply build their own private cloud storage service. The concept revolves around the Transporter Sync ($99), which connects to a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 external hard drive, or the Transporter ($199 for 1TB), which houses a 2.5-inch HDD internally. Selected folders can be synchronized between a PC and a Transporter, or between two Transporters — effectively creating a robust private cloud storage service without needing to be an IT expert.

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.

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.
