Shockwave games

It happens to all of us: we get bored. Excel loses its interest and the afternoon stretches out like a wet weekend. All that is required is a short go on a game, but the IT department has banned all games from the office network. Or have they? If you have a fast connection to the Internet and have the Shockwave plugin installed as part of your Web browser, your afternoon can be quietly entertaining - but not very productive. The Nabisco Web site at has an array of time wasting (but enjoyable) Shockwave-based games ranging from the Chips Ahoy Chipulator puzzle game to the Ritz Ball Toss, which simulates a fair ground game where you throw balls at Kewpie dolls for points, using the mouse. The amazing thing about these games is that they look as good and play as well as $79.95 worth of software used to, only about five years ago. Just remember that you have no chance at all of convincing anyone that you are working.

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.
