The choice is: gadgets for productive work in the office
Just think: even some 20 years ago computers and Internet were not available to all office workers. Smartphones on Android and iOS haven’t started its March around the world, and truly portable mobile solution in the form of ultrabooks and tablets appeared even later. Fortunately, progress does not stand still, today manufacturers are making every effort to make everyday routine a little easier. We present a selection of useful gadgets and accessories that make work in the office and beyond easier and more convenient.
USB is almost completely replaced all other interfaces for connecting peripherals. Even the keyboard and “mouse” for many years not be connected through PS/2, taking one or two USB ports in the computer.
