Office

Hey everyone, welcome to my desk this time!  My room - er, I mean, office - has way more gadgets in it than these couple of photos show. I figure I'd stick to my main space to keep it short and sweet.  My main desktop is my trusty 27" iMac from mid-2010. Over the holidays, [...]

What does my desk look like?  I was afraid someone was going to ask!  There it is, in all it's unvarnished glory.  Let me take you on a tour. (Click on any image for a full size photo.) The centerpiece is, of course, a 27" Apple iMac (late 2009). From left to right (in no particular [...]

My first computer was given to me in 9th grade, which was a laptop running Windows 98. Before that, we had rented a computer for word processing from a Nebraska agency, which ran Windows 95 and had a dot matrix printer along with it. Being one of the relatively young Gadgeteers, you may laugh at [...]

When asked to participate in this series I was reluctant, actually I am reluctant, mainly because my writing area has been declared a mess by certain individuals in my household.  But then again, I subscribe to the old saying that "if a cluttered desk is evidence of a cluttered mind, what does an empty desk [...]

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, [...]

Do you ever wonder where all the writing magic happens for the Gadgeteer news and reviews that you read on a daily basis? Do you picture us hunched over a keyboard in a Starbucks or a library somewhere? We want to give you a glimpse into how and where we get things done. This first [...]

Yesterday started Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. If you're a fan of these shows and creatures, this handy Jac Zagoory Shark Bite Stapler might look great on your desk. It's made of pewter and looks cool enough... Too bad it costs an arm and a leg (which fits right in with shark week!) at [...]

I bet you have never read a title like that one have you? The GymyGym (pronounced like: jimmy gym) is a great looking office chair that doubles as a workout machine. It has built in bungee type straps for your hands and feet so that you can do 16 core exercises to strengthen and stretch [...]

I actually saw one of these in action at my company and thought I'd share with others who are trapped in a cube farm just like in a bad Dilbert strip. It reminded me of a Shoji screen presented on all the chic home-improvement shows, but a Modular Privacy Wall is meant for The Office.  [...]
