Simple and Slick Sound

To open an audio file into PC DJ, you drag and drop it from a folder on your hard drive. The program also scans your computer for compatible files and will load all of them if you choose.

The interface (click for a picture) presents two panes side-by-side, one for each song you have queued to play. Controls on each pane allow you to change a song's volume and speed. A control in the middle of the mixer lets you "cross fade" or increase the volume of one track incrementally, as the volume automatically decreases on the other. Overall, the interface is slick and easy to use.

When you're ready to meet the public, the program connects you with free Internet-broadcasting services, including Live365.com, Shoutcast, and Ice Cast.

I have two small complaints. Clicking a button marked Email, which I guessed would allow me to send feedback, produced an error message. And when I clicked the Help button, the program tried to launch a nonexistent, readme text file. However, the program is intuitive and requires little hand-holding.

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.
