Aviator Laptop Stand (Oh, Why Didn't I Think of That?)

August 8, 2006

A survey of U.S. adult computer users, commissioned by Intel and conducted by Harris Interactive, reveals that 34% of respondents or their families have taken a laptop PC with them on vacation and 51% of all respondents are likely to take a laptop PC on a future vacation. 

Add to that the fact that more than 90% of corporate travelers take their laptop with them on business trips and you can easily see the basis for the Aviator Laptop Stand from Keynamics.

Plantronics Voyager 510-USB Bluetooth headset review

May 25, 2006

Plantronics sent me their Voyager 510 Bluetooth headset to review. Unlike any other Bluetooth headsets, the Plantronics Voyager 510 USB Bluetooth headset is the first to simultaneously support both VoIP softphones on your PC and your Bluetooth mobile phone simultaneously -- negating the need to deregister/re-register your Bluetooth connection with the other device. Plantronics is able to do this using their exclusive Multipoint Technology.

Measuring 4.0 x 2.5 x 0.8 inches and weighing 5.6 ounces, the Plantronic Voyager 510 headset is pretty lightweight - after awhile you don't even notice it is there. It is slightly heavier and bulkier than the Motorola HS850 , but I found the Voyager 510-USB much more comfortable on my ear.

Corded headsets are by far the predominant type of headset installed in call centers and corporate offices, however Plantronics aims to make "wireless" headsets the predominant headset of choice in the very near future. Plantronics ACG (Audio Communications Group) hit record revenues of $161.5m in Q3. The revenue growth was driven by wireless office headsets which represented 25% of total ACG revenues. Confirming this trend is Frost and Sullivan, which stated in a March 2005 report claims that by 2009, 75% of office headset sales will be wireless.

MobileEdge Express Backpack: Clear Edge over the Competition

March 3, 2006

It seems like I'm always looking for the perfect bag for my laptop.  Yes, the Coach business look works fine in the right setting, but it is not always the right setting. (Who wants to carry a briefcase if they don't have to?)

While many are called, few are chosen, and MobileEdge Express Backpack has been getting the call when I need to mobile. (It's also doubled as a school backpack for my non-computer carrying child -- but that easy to get to, dedicated exterior media pocket for MP3 or CD player comes in handy -- the headphone pass-through port is brilliant so the device stays in the bag, while the 'phones go in the ear.

Of course, there's plenty of room in the protective computer sleeve for notebooks with screens up to 15.4 inches.
