On Better TV: Geek Chic Accessories For Your Professional Self
December 22, 2008
Recently on Better.tv, SheFinds showed you some stellar tech-y finds for staying stylishly organized and connected – even if you’re not a technology fiend.
Data and computing accessories are nearly endless. These are four of our favorites, and we swear they’re not that complicated. The DataTraveler Mini Slim ($11-19) is a really, really small USB flash drive that comes with a 2-year warranty and tech support, just in case you need some USB hand-holding. Carry your flash drive around in this Peanut USB Holder ($7) From Built NY, which makes all sorts of other useful things – like laptop cases and wine totes – out of the same cushy, colorful neoprene. The Dane-Elec Digital ZPen ($90) allows you to take notes on nothing, and stores the info you scribble down into the pen, so you can upload it onto your computer later. Way lighter than a laptop when you’re traveling to meetings.
One definite hurdle to being uber-connected: staying that way on the go. The Tonic Universal USB AC Wall Charger ($30) is only about the size of a box of tic tacs, and can charge BlackBerrys and any other device that uses USB power. When you’re all charged up, hook a Jawbone ($130) on your ear to talk hands-free. And if you’re working from your laptop off-site, the Q-Link Nimbus ($170), which plugs into your computer, claims to increase energy, stamina and concentration by reducing electromagnetic fields.
Of course, staying stylish and sane amidst all the gadgets is always on our mind. Coby Electronics’s Digital Photo Frame ($51) lets you gaze at whomever or whatever you want without constantly switching your pictures by hand. If you’re a card-carrying corporate American, show some style by using cute BooJee beads ($10-$20) to hold your ID card. And keep all your gadgets clean and sparkly with Weiman E-tronic Wipes ($6), which are quick-drying, streak-free and safe to use on electronics.
