DEMO - Kaboodle's shopping-research assistant

Yet another Web-based service that's premiering at DEMO: Kaboodle, a tool for saving, comparing, and sharing product information as you shop online. When you're at a product-related site (like an online store or a reviews site like PCWorld.com), Kaboodle lets you use an "Add to Kaboodle" browser button which looks at the page, then creates a summary and link which it adds to your Kaboodle account. In some ways, it reminds me of some of the tools at Amazon.com--except Kaboodle is designed to work with the entire Web, not one shopping site.

Kaboodle lets you share these pages (multiple people can add information to one page, and can add comments and notes). It's free--the company hopes to make money by selling targeted ads with special offers relating to whatever you're researching--and while it's very definitely a beta, it's an intriguing one, especially if you ever make a buying decision online that involves multiple people. (I could see spouses finding it handy as they zero in on a new car.)

Next time I'm making a major purchase, I think I'll take for a spin.

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.
