Favorite Gadgets I currently use

Curently I have a select list of gadgets that I find most useful in helping me get things done.

First among these is my work provided Blackberry Bold. This device is very useful for me to maintain my schedule and accomplish work tasks while I am on the go at work. it also comes in handy as a device that allows me to carry a lot of information with me. Additionally I am able to use it as an MP3 player.

My second favorite device was a Christmas gift that my wife got for me last year (2008). This is the LiveScribe Pulse smart Pen. I have found this device useful for capturing time synchronized audio notes along with my handwritten notes. While some may not like this device for having to use special paper the small premium for it is made up for by the functianlity of the device itself.

Third, is my Acer Aspire One Netbook. I was an early adopter of this technology and bought the 8.9 inch version. I find the device usefull for mobile web browsing, document editing and other light to medium computing tasks but really believe that the latest generation of 11.6-inch netbooks and ultraportable notebooks is the real sweetspot for this technology. Best thing about this device is that is sure beats carrying my 6 pound work provided Dell D830 when I am on work travel.

Finally, two of my favorite 2 non-it gadgets are pens. The Zebra Telescopic Pen is very useful and is small so it does not require much room to sotre. My executive Yoropen is also a fine writing instrument that is very useful for both lefties (like me) and righties. It is highly ergonmoic and is comfortable to write with for long periods of time.
