Improve Your Productivity with a Tablet Keyboard

Okay, so alot  of you are waiting in anticipation for the release of the Ipad 3.

For those of you who have the Ipad 2, I came across an amazing keyboard + stand + cover combo.

This nifty invention created by ZAGG is a keyboard solution that works like a dream. I tend do quite a bit of typing on my Ipad 2 and I just found that other keyboards like my apple wireless just didn’t do the job. Mostly because the smart cover and the keyboard just didn’t quite have the right angle and set up.

Ths ZAGGfolio keyboard for Ipad 2 works really well by creating a “laptop” feel for your tablet. It also folds down into a solid durable cover to protect both the keyboard and Ipad 2.

So here is my quick Pros and Cons list:

Pros:

– Slick intuitive design.

– Nice angle for being able to use the Ipad 2 effectively for work.

– Cover is removable for the keyboard so it can be a stand alone piece if needed.

– Battery life lasts a long time and can charge quickly using any USB port.

Cons:

– This device connects via bluetooth which can sometimes cut out. (I haven’t had any problems with this so far)

These are selling at London Drugs right now for $120 or online on the ZAGG website for $95 US.

Water Bobble!

In the spirit of Saint Paddies Day, I have been walking around with my newly acquired green water bobble.

For those of you who don’t know, Water Bobble is an alternative to bottled water. The concept is pretty simple, you fill up your bobble with water and it filters out the chlorine and organic matter to deliver fresh tasting water. As a frequenter of the kitchen tap for my hydration, I’m glad to see that this product is now widely available in Canada and is set at an affordable price.

The Water Bobble lasts about 300 bottles or 2 months depending on usage. For me, that will probably be 300 bottles as I drink an insane amount of water on a daily basis.

At the office, it’s great because you can fill up a 1 litre bobble quickly and don’t have to worry about getting up all the time to refill it.

Right now, Water Bobble is giving away a free gift set if you buy $35 or more. It’s a heck of deal and works out to about $11 bucks a bottle. Check it out at www.waterbobble.com.
