That’s A Lot Of Games! Narrow It Down For Me

Of those, the big headliner is probably Uncharted: Golden Abyss, a portable entry in the popular Uncharted action-adventure series that will tie in with the PS3 Uncharted games. Other big titles in the launch catalog include racing game Wipeout 2048 and Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, but don't miss out on cool downloadable games like Super StarDust Delta.

When Can I Get it And What Does It Cost?

The Vita launches in North America on February 22nd and the entry-level model (Wi-Fi only) will set you back $250. Sony’s also selling a 3G model that will cost you $300, with the optional AT&T data plan costing you another $15 a month for 250MB of data, or $30 a month for 3GB -- identical to the iPad 3G data plans. The Playstation Vita should be available at most game stores and large retailers, though you may want to pre-order a Vita if you want to guarantee you’ll be playing yours on launch day.

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.
