Freecom Beatman Flash MP3 Player

The Beatman is a small, square player weighing a mere 44g, and its single AAA battery should last up to nine hours. There’s 64MB of built-in flash memory for storing MP3 or WMA files — enough space for about half an hour’s worth of high-quality songs. Freecom has also, sensibly, left space for a SmartMedia card (not included).

The player has a rectangular LCD screen large enough to show an array of track information and it’s easily navigated. A built-in microphone enables the player to hold up to 17 hours of voice memos. The Beatman’s audio quality is impressive. It can handle CD-quality audio and is bundled with decent Sennheiser headphones. Bundled headphones often result in tinny sound but these ones pump out a lot of power.

Installing via the USB is easy and the Digital Audio Manager software is basically the same as using Internet Explorer. There is no extra functionality at your fingertips — just the basics — so you can upload songs from your PC to player and download songs from player to PC.

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.

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.
