kokuyo-stapleless-stapler

Have you ever stapled anything only to pierce your finger on the misshapen staple? Perhaps you've experienced a staple snagging a favorite shirt. Or maybe you're frustrated with having to fix a jammed stapler or having to refill it. It's time to consider purchasing a stapleless stapler like the Kokuyo Harinacs Japanese Stapleless Stapler. This gadget [...]

Self parking chairs?

nissan-self-driving-parking-chair

Nissan has developed chairs that return to their parking spot. Clap once and all the chairs around the boardroom table move themselves back into perfect alignment, ready for the next meeting. In an open office, clap again and all the desk chairs are neater than the desks. The bases of the chairs have batteries, motors, [...]

With most office jobs these days you tend to sit for many hours on end, which is not great for your body.  Sit-stand desks are becoming very popular, and many of them are becoming affordable for the home and office.  I recently got the chance to review the Winston Sit-Stand Workstation, which comes in a [...]

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 [...]

02) Bass, Keyboard and Microphone

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 [...]
