Yes, we absolutely can help you with your project. Small business technology integration is our specialty. You can have it good, fast, or cheap.
This is a good deal, especially for the free shipping. Batteries are HEAVY and usually cost an arm and a leg to ship, which is why I usually recommend buying local. This is a great price, and no pain with the free shipping.
If you have a workstation, or a group of networking equipment (router, switch, modem, wireless, etc), you should have one of these. It regulates the power feed to these sensitive devices, allowing them to last longer, and not die power-related deaths. It also gives power to them in the case of a power outage, allowing you to save your work (on your workstation), run longer on your laptop, or keep your network stuff up during a power blip.
A lot of designers and publishers have been waiting for this.
Also, check out the new Adobe Creative Cloud now available! What a great option!
I had a client call me yesterday in a panic regarding their online email. Their account had evidently been compromised (we’re still working to determine the specific cause) and all of their email and contacts had been deleted. Apparently, the bad guy also set up an automatic forwarding on her account, so any emails arriving auto-forwarded, and deleted from her account. The good news is that she caught it fairly quickly. The bad news; she didn’t have a good backup of her emails.
Online email services are great. I personally use Gmail almost exclusively, and I have several clients transitioned to the service. Other online email services have their benefits and drawbacks as well. For all the benefits, it is a common problem to overlook making periodic local backups of important emails.
Regardless of your email service provider, there are several great ways to backup your online emails and contacts. Put this as a to-do list periodically. You’ll be thankful if you encounter a similar problem.
Want a change from your mouse? Try a trackball!
Kensington Orbit Black Scroll Ring USB Wired TrackBall Mouse – $19.99 (w/ $7 off code “KENS322″) + Free Shipping at Newegg.com, Exp.3/26
Several of my clients with RSIs have added a trackball to their computer desk, and have found relief alternating between pointing devices.
This is an inexpensive peripheral to give a trackball a try. It’s also a great option when you have a desktop surface with very little mouse-space (or none at all)!
For those who move between devices, Dropbox is a great filesharing solution. With clients for many devices, it is seamless to transfer images, documents, links, or anything else from device to device.
Install it on your desktop, install it on your iPhone or iPad, install it on your work laptop, etc. It creates a folder on your machine called your dropbox. Any file you put in your dropbox is automatically copied to your cloud storage dropbox. Any devices that you have the client installed on will automatically sync when you turn them on.

iPhone users, check out Backup Contacts – Easy Backup. Its currently free, down from .99. It will let you make easy backups of your Contact List (outside of iTunes), and save them, either on the device, or send them via email.
It never hurts to have an extra backup periodically, just in case!
