Desk

The popularity of standing desks continues to grow, but there's one thing about these computer accessories that can be annoying to most users... the method of adjusting them up and down. Customizing the height as you fiddle with knobs or hinged locking mechanisms can be awkward and dangerous if you're not paying attention to what [...]

Levitator Standup Desk

Wow! That was my first reaction when I opened the box for my Levitator stand up desk.  Was it a desk or art?  The acrylic panels are so bright and airy, and cheerful! My office is not, it has more of a quiet and peaceful vibe to it, I wondered how the Levitator would fit in.  [...]

Standing desks have been around for years, but they are making a comeback, due to some recent studies. The studies revolved around the dangers of sitting for prolonged periods. I've recently seen news reports of schools that are replacing traditional desks with standing desks, and the energizing effect they've had on students. So, with my [...]

Even though I love reviewing audio gear more than anything else, it’s always fun to test something that makes no sound—well, almost no sound. This time, I’m trying out the UPLIFT height adjustable standing desk. To be honest, when I was given the opportunity to try out this desk, I had some reservations because I [...]

Sitting all day in front of a computer is both monotonous and unhealthy. That's why sit-stand desks are gaining in popularity. The ability to quickly switch from sitting to standing is a great way to burn a few extra calories, improve circulation, help with back problems and more. Last month I reviewed my first standing [...]

You've seen it, I've seen it, we've all read the warnings claiming that sitting too much is the new cancer. Trust me, cancer is no fun (voice of experience here), so finding alternatives to sitting all day is something everyone should consider. There are apps that will remind you to get up and move around [...]

Recently, Julie asked for us to show our desks and what's on them. With mine, there is not much to tell. I’m an art director by day and freelancer by night, so my desk is usually strewn with all kinds of junk. Add to that my passion for all things audio, and I keep pretty [...]

I know that this is a series about each of the Gadgeteer members’ desks and what things we use to do our work, but since I have just started as a Gadgeteer, I will also show you where I do my homeschool teaching. To begin with, science and technology are in my blood, but so [...]

I already told you about my spiffy elfa design-it-yourself desk.  (Check the related links at the end of this post to find the original post about my desk.)  Since I built that desk, I've moved to a new house, and my desk easily disassembled and reassembled at the new place.  It looks like it was [...]

Hi, my name is Mark Rosengarten and I have a problem.  It's a gadget problem.  It's an addiction and has been as long as I've been aware that there was such a thing as a gadget.  In fact, I have been an avid follower of The Gadgeteer since it got started, it has always been [...]

So, Julie started this "Show us your desk series" and I thought I would add mine to the list. As you will see I don't have the same amount of cool bric-a-brac that Julie posses, but then again she has been at this longer than I have :) . What you do get to see [...]

I have been a writer here at the Gadgeteer for over a decade. Hard to believe it has been that many years. It all started with a tech question in an email to Julie that led to her eventually asking me to join the team. I believe there were only four of us back in [...]

I must say that I’m pretty satisfied with my workspace, having tailored it to my needs over six years as a remote home office employee. What you see above is the “electronics corner” of the room. The photo doesn’t include a massive (and messy) desk directly behind the chair; nor another corner with filing cabinets, [...]
