Juice your gadgets wirelessly

A battery charger isn't exactly the sexiest device, but if it means eliminating the vast number of random power adapters I have plugged in around my house, I say come hither.

Last month I wrote about the eCoupled charging technology, which Herman Miller is looking to build into its desks. The idea is that you would charge up your gadgets just by laying them down on the surface where you work. The WildCharger is another promising wireless charging technology that can give life to multiple devices at once.

All you do is lay your gadgets down on the WildCharger, and the pad will zap power to them without requiring you to plug them in. (Of course, the device needs to incorporate the WildCharger technology; it's not clear whether it needs to be built-in, or you'll use some sort of adapter.) With 90 watts of power, the $120 WildCharger is capable of juicing laptops and a few other smaller devices at the same time. At 15 watts, the $49 WildCharger Mini is tailored toward charging three or four smaller gadgets, like cell phones and MP3 players. A higher-powered unit is also in the works.

The WildCharger pads are due to see the light of day in the first half of 2007.

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.
