There’s an ever-growing need for a faster, more mobile means to get work done on the road or out in the field. That’s why the Brother PocketJet 6 Plus Bluetooth Mobile Printer warrants a closer look.

While tablets and even smartphones are becoming more viable options for mobile computing, nothing can beat the convenience and usefulness of a portable notebook computer. Sure, netbooks have been around, but they lack the performance to do anything besides word processing, email checking and Web surfing.

Remember when desktop computers used to have single-core processors, which would take an eternity just to open a Word document? Me neither. That’s because dual-core and even quad-core central processing units (CPUs) have become the standard for desktop computers.

With Mother's Day looming just before us, now might be a great time to open your mom's mind to the usefulness and convenience of tablet computing. The iPad is tremendously popular, and an awesome piece of technical goodness to boot. But there are many other tablets to choose from.

Samsung’s Series 7 Windows notebooks pack plenty of processing power into a compact, sleek chassis. Featuring a dual- or quad-core Intel processor and loaded with 8GB of RAM, the 15.6" models are less than an inch thick and weigh just over 5 lb.

These accessories give you great-sounding ways to enjoy your iPhone or iPod. You can even turn it into a virtual musical instrument, and have loads of fun listening to recorded music or what you create spontaneously.

Back in 1975, when Maxine Nightingale was singing “We got to get right back to where we started from,” little did she know that the song would make a perfect commercial for a gadget that wouldn’t be invented for another 35 years or so. In fact, the technology that allows this neat little gadget to work didn’t even exist at the time.

Flip Video turned the camcorder industry on its head by proving that minimal hardware features sell, especially when tightly integrated with easy-to-use software for your computer. Now, Flip has introduced its most ambitious model yet, the Slide HD, with a 3-inch touchscreen that slides out at a 45-degree angle to show your videos. The camera embeds 16-Gigabytes of memory for storing up to 4 hours of high-def video.

Though personal media players have been dominated by one manufacturer whose name starts with "A" (not Archos), not everyone needs a touchscreen or Wi-Fi to be entertained. When it comes to enjoying videos, slideshows, and music, there's something to be said for an inexpensive portable. With its generous 8.9-inch (1024 x 600) screen, kickstand, remote, USB and SD inputs, and HDTV output, Cinepal from aspiring A-lister Aluratek could turn a few heads.

The product is called FlipShare TV, a white box about the size of a three-waffle stack. It plugs into a conventional TV with an included composite video/stereo cable or HDTV using an optional HDMI cable to wirelessly receive videos and photos directly from a computer. You attach the Bic lighter-like transmitter, called the USB key, to your Windows or Mac computer, which can be in a nearby room. Then, you point the infrared remote (two AAA batteries are included) at the white box, known as the TV Base, making it possible to run the show without getting up.

I recently got to spend a few days with the Sony Reader Daily Edition, Sony's newest digital book. During that time I made better use of my commute, read more than I have since college, and realized that reading glasses should be my next upgrade. Aptly named, the Daily Edition provides access to daily newspapers, in addition to over 1 million books and periodicals.

Many people are obsessed with keeping a close eye on the latest gadgets, and often judge if each new doodad has a forward-thinking design. If you place a Tivoli iPAL on a shelf next to the latest gizmos, it fits right in. What's interesting is that some of the fundamental design concepts behind it date back to the 1950 s and 60's. This week I realized that in our web 2.0 world, a portable AM/FM radio is still a wonderfully handy piece of technology to have around.
