Cellboost gives your phone a little extra oomph

You know what's fun? Plugging in the wrong charger the night before, and now discovering that your cell phone is teetering on the brink of shutdown while you're waiting for that all-important, deal-making phone call and hoping that your best pal isn't going to use up your battery's last gasp by calling to talk about an interesting pizza stain on his dash while he's stuck in traffic.

Of course, by "fun" I meant "tooth-grindingly aggravating." (And, I should point out, the above example bears only a passing resemblance to real events.) If you occasionally find yourself in a similar situation, you might want to consider picking up the Cellboost, a US$7.99 portable battery that can give your phone an extra hour of talk time. Different models exist for various Motorola, Samsung, LG, Nokia, Siemens, Sony Ericsson, Sanyo and Audiovox phones, but they all work on the same principle: pop the Cellboost in when you need it, and when it finally gives out, simply discard it drop it off somewhere that recycles old batteries. (Demerits to Cellboost for suggesting the environmentally unfriendly alternative.)

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
