Dell Pocket DJ

Put a silver iPod mini beside Dell's Pocket DJ, and--except for the buttons--you would have an easier time telling the Olsen twins apart (pre-hair-dye job). The Dell has nearly the same dimensions as its rival and a polished metal case to match. Switch it on, and the Now Playing screen displays the same font and layout you'd find on the mini.

The Pocket DJ packs 5GB of storage--a full gigabyte more storage space than the mini's 4GB--for the same price. Dell also includes the most intuitive music management program I've used--Musicmatch 9--and the DJ's use of a scroll dial (similar to the scroll wheel on a mouse) as its primary control permits speedy, simple navigation. The dedicated Home and Back buttons come in handy, too.

Gym rats will wish the Dell came with an armband. It lacks an FM tuner and recording capabilities as well. But despite those drawbacks, Dell's Pocket DJ is a fine digital music player.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
