EditLive!

The installation process is quick and easy, but you have to install the Netscape plug-in separately - the main setup program creates an icon for Netscape installation, but the instructions don't mention that it won't install itself.

When you point your browser at a Web page that contains the appropriate codes, EditLive! is launched automatically and loads a specified page (not necessarily the one you're viewing). You can then use it to edit online materials with an interface much like that of a popular word processor. Saving your modified page will automatically update the original page on the server.

So far, so good, but there are lots of WYSIWYG Web editors already, so why do we need this one? The answer is of more interest to commercial service providers than individual users: the software enables clients to modify their own Web documents, while allowing administrators to control their degree of access. Almost any ability of this editor can be configured or restricted in the commercial version, from which files or parts of files the client is allowed to change, through to the fonts that can be used. This means that a company with a large Web site can, for example, easily allow employees to modify their own sections to update product information, without needing to worry about deviations from the official company style or accidental damage to important files.

EditLive! is hoping to find a market niche among companies with a lot of data to present on the Web, and its ability to specify the degree of freedom of clients makes it especially attractive in this role.

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.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
