TrackID

This week we learnt of a new and exciting feature in Sony Ericsson's range of Walkman phones, called TrackID.

Basically, TrackID is an application within the latest Walkman phones (we reviewed the latest W850i) that enables you to record a few seconds of a song, send it to Sony Ericsson's new music recognition service and have information about that song sent to your phone almost immediately.

So if you've ever heard part of a song, but can't remember what it is called or who the artist is, then this is definitely for you. The process is surprisingly simple as well; just record up to five seconds of music through the phones built-in microphone or even record directly off the FM radio, and as long as the track is listed in Sony Ericsson's database, track title and artist information will be sent to your phone.

A simple innovation, yet so effective.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

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.
