Make A Mint

Processing card payments on the spot isn’t easy. But if you’re looking to accept payments outside of the office, Mint Wireless may be the way to go.

The Mint system is a palm-sized card reader and printer that wirelessly processes credit card and other payments and immediately prints a taxable invoice for customers.

Better yet, all transactions are integrated with the accounting system back at your office, so you won’t lose track of what’s coming in. 

Mint Wireless users will need a smart phone or PDA to load the software and run transactions.

A Mint subscription costs $49 for 24 months and comes with a one-hour set-up session and unlimited support—otherwise it requires an upfront payment of $1,176.


Mobile Workspace

Are you forcing yourself into awkward positions to use your notebook computer?

Targus’s Portable LapDesk can change this. The LapDesk creates a workspace wherever you’d like, and it can also be turned into a tilt stand with five adjustable angles.

Its non-skid surface supports all notebook sizes and also improves air circulation to keep your notebook cooler.

Weighing less than half a kilogram, the LapDesk can be carried in a standard notebook case and is being retailed at $49.95.


A New Spin

For those who want to let their inner designer out, the Dymo DiscPainter may be just the thing.

This stylish little fella prints clear and colourful high-resolution images onto discs in about one minute. And if you think you don’t have to skills to create your own masterpiece, you can use some of the ready-made canvasses included with the software.

The software is compatible with the likes of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, and also features a photo collage tool so you can include as many as 16 photos in a design.

Priced at $449, Dymo DiscPainter comes with three inkjet printable discs and an ink cartridge to print about 100 discs.


Easing Navigation

This keyboard and mouse combination may be easy on the eyes, but its also makes it easy to navigate your PC.

The wireless Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 5500 Revolution’s rechargeable mouse has a precision scroll wheel, allowing you to move through up to 10,000 lines of a spreadsheet in about seven seconds. And with the correct settings, the thumb wheel can launch Windows Vista Flip 3D to zoom in and out of documents and photos.

The keyboard comes with perks too; its built-in LCD screen shows the time, date, temperature, favourite websites, email updates, media information, and also has a calculator and keystroke counter.

The desktop combo, costing $249, can be used from a distance of up to 10 metres from your PC.
