Let’s take a break from the serious tech talk and focus on the Holidays. We’re always so consumed with what’s being said on Mashable or our Linkedin Groups. We’re constantly tweeting, sharing and commenting on everything, and it always seems like we don’t have any time to stop, and think about our friends and family – unless they’re in our newsfeed.
Well, it’s that time of year again – the time when you run around looking for the perfect gift, asking yourself who likes what and where to get it. This year why don’t you take a different stress-free and eco-friendly approach, and grab some special virtual and digital gifts for your favourite entrepreneur!
Here are four ideas that just might fit your budget and their lifestyle…
Evernote is a wicked (and free!) application that helps you remember everything and keep it all in one place! Take notes anywhere from the ‘real world’ and store them in your ‘virtual world’, create a library of web pages that you can refer to at any time, and even scan all your travel documents and pull them out when need be! Evernote keeps you and your memory in check.
This is a great gift for the entrepreneur who’s managing their own team. SharePoint Hosting 2010 is one of the most cost-effective ways to implement and manage any high-performance website or collaboration project. It’s also extremely affordable starting at just $8.95 a month! Some the features include: document sharing, social-media orientation and absolute access.
If your entrepreneur is always on the go flying around the world or even just to the next city, why not get them FlightTrack Pro. This amazing application imports data from your airline confirmation email to give you all the info you need about delays, gate changes, cancellations and even alternate boarding plans. To top it all off, you even get full satellite and weather images, and maps of the airport terminals all for $9.99!
Let’s be honest, nothing looks cooler than a laser keyboard. The Celluon Virtual Laser Keyboard (VKB) works with any device that has Bluetooth HID, and it’s the only keyboard that operates in complete darkness. This special laser keyboard works via its “magic cube”, which studies your finger movements to interpret and record your keystrokes. The VKB acts just like any other keyboard (even replicates the “tapping” sound effect) expect when it’s not in use it completely disappears – giving you back that desk room. You can get the VKB for around $160 bucks.
