The need for speed

Practically identical to the Paradise modem of the same name, the Swann also includes answering and fax machine capabilities, which can be used independently of the PC, as well as speakerphone, remote access and call alert functions. This modem distinguishes itself from the others tested with the inclusion of the Office WebWorks CD - which proved very useful. It contains interactive lessons about the Internet as well as a large selection of shareware software and games. For Internet novices, the learning section of the CD starts with the basics - explaining what the Internet is about and then moving on to topics explaining e-mail and Web browsing. A small and basic glossary of terms is also included and the CD also contains a comprehensive listing of ISPs from all over the country. Swann's software bundle includes some of the most popular shareware and freeware programs available, including ICQ and Eudora. It comes with a five-year warranty and is priced at $329.

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.
