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.)

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.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
