Home Office Tools
As a Freelancer, I invest on tools and gadgets that will help in my career. Each of them is a helpful piece to my online journey.
What I love with this mouse is it has its horizontal scrolling. So whenever I got a big data, I would able to scroll vertically and horizontally. Another feature I love with this is it’s not bulky. It perfectly fits at your hand and if you don’t need it, you just need to flip it to flat to turn it off. It’s also wireless and works with Bluetooth technology.
This presenter is so far the best I have ever used. There is control keys which is normal, On/Off Switch and the best is the OFN (Optical Finger Navigation) button where you can scroll in it just like using your own mouse and use the clicks like the mouse clicks. It can be used as far as 20m away and it is just plug n’ play. So easy to use and works best for presentation demos.
Together with this tool, I am able to maximize the data of my internet broadband. Besides that it is 10m long, it really provides great value as it really gives high-speed in my connection. The ends are both gold-plated and is 10gbps high speed. You can view the comparison of my connection from WiFi vs with Cable in this article.
This tool can connect me from HDMI to VGA. My laptop has only HDMI connection, so whenever I present on demos, I can’t connect my laptop to their projectors. That’s the reason why this became handy to me. I am also using it to connect to my old monitor so I can have dual screens.
