Top 10 business gadgets

Offices are full of tech these days - here's our pick of the 10 most essential gadgets.

SMEs, and even large corporations, are always looking to lower costs and improve overheads through the inclusion of technology that makes business more productive, cost effective, and efficient.

Skype essentially offers free internet calling, video messaging, and SMS to anybody who signs up for an account with them.

However, they also offer business solutions, for a monthly fee, to companies both large and small, which will effectively help them lower costs and conduct over seas business for a fraction of the cost. This is particularly useful for smaller start-up companies, when money is scarce, and connectivity and productivity is everything.


Having an obese wallet stuffed with credit cards, debit cards, gym cards, Oyster cards, and dinner cards is never a good look - particularly, if you're attempting to impress at a meeting, or business engagement.

This is where the iCache comes in handy, allowing you to store all your credit cards on a single card, so you can leave the rest of your cards at home, slimming down that unsightly wallet no-end.

The iCache is fully protected, meaning if someone steals it they cannot access your data as it requires your unique finger print, making it completely tamper proof. Additionally, it uses biometric security to protect your credit card and personal information.

The iCache works by digitally replicating your credit cards' magnetic strip signatures, meaning you can use it at the gym, restaurant, or to top up your Oyster card - it basically does everything, and is a seriously cool piece of gadgetry.

Everex Cloudbook

If you're looking for an ultra slim personal computer, and even the miniscule netbooks are too cumbersome for your needs, then the Everex Cloudbook is the machine for you.

The machine, which weighs in at an almost weightless two pounds comes with open source software, including Everex's gOS Rocket and a version of Ubuntu, ensuring you'll be able to go about your business even in the smallest, most confined places.

The pixie-like machine includes a 1.2GHz processor, a 30GB Hard Disk Drive, 7 WVGA TFT Display (800 x 480), 4-in1 Media Card Reader, 802.11b/g, (1) 10/100 Ethernet Port, 3MP Webcam, and did we mention, it's really, really, really small?

Vitala Beamer Single-Unit Video Phone

Having a video phone on your desk is quite an extravagance, even for a Bond villain. However, if you're working abroad for long periods of time, or simply have a penchant for cool little gadgets, a futuristic desk mounted video phone is definitely for you.

The video phone allows you to store and view images, create your own slide show, and send and receive images between BM FX phones. The device's memory isn't enormous, but it will hold about 12 digital still pictures. The device is about the same size as a smallish picture frame, and is a perfect gift or gadget for any professional who likes to see the faces of the people he loves.
