Do Your Presentation Work With A Laser Pointer

It’s downright incredible how cheap laser pointers are these days. Lit up 30 years, ago the laser diode is the basis of all of the world’s cheap lasers. You can get a decent one on eBay for less than 10$. A laser pointer is very useful, and one of its most popular usages nowadays is wireless laser presenter.

At some point or another in everybody’s working life, a presentation in front of one’s peers, colleagues, or customers is inevitable. Laser presenter offers a very nice alternative to remaining tethered to a PC while cranking through the PowerPoint presentation. In fact, as the product name so ably illustrates, the wireless laser Presenter not only gives presenters the ability to walk away from the PC showing their slides, it lets them highlight key information items on their foils with an intense spot of bright light.

Most wireless laser presenter combines office help functions to simplify the process. Functions like advance or reverse the slide deck, scroll page up, down and more.

Even the green beam can be seen at some high power green lasers, and the dot is clearly visible on bright surface even sunlit surface.

How to Get Christmas Presents for Geeks?

If you’re not much of a technology enthusiast yourself, this part of your Christmas shopping may be a bit intimidating. Particularly if the nerd we are speaking about is someone special in your life, and it is very important than he gets a nice surprise. You know you can’t go for a bottle of cologne or a sweater – they’d probably feel just like you would if you received a pair of socks for Christmas. You may have a sort of vague idea that you should get a gadget or something. But how can you decide what to choose? What if it’s out-of-date, or they already have it, or it’s made by a company they despise?

First of all, here are some tips about gift shopping in general. If you want to make it special, you must get outside of your regular mindset. Try to put yourself in his shoes. Write down everything you know about what he loves: any special hobbies, tech companies that he likes and dislikes, what he is working on, gadgets that he has, computer games that he has, movies he has a special interest in… and basically everything that you know about his possessions and interests. Pay increased attention of the things that he already owns – you don’t want to go buying the exact same stuff. Also, listen to him when he’s talking about tech things for a few weeks, even if you do not really care – they are a good source of information.

The list might have helped you narrow things down a bit, but how do you go about actually picking the specific item? If you decide to purchase a computer game, for instance, how do you go about picking one if you don’t play PC games yourself? One thing you can do is to try reading online reviews about the latest releases. But then people have different tastes – even if you get a new, very popular one, how do you know he will like it? A straightforward solution is to speak to one of his friends if you could. If not, maybe you have a friend who plays computer games and can help you out.

Geeky toys could be a good idea – they are fun to have and not exactly something you would go buy for yourself. Your selection here is fairly wide – from walkie bits to tiny finger drums. It’s all about how much thought and imagination you put into it. In the same area, collectibles make a great present for someone who is very passionate about a particular movie or book.

If it’s a geek who also enjoys to dress up and look respectable, you could choose a designer notebook bag. Certainly, he already has one, but maybe it is just a regular bag. The advantage here is that you don’t need much technical expertise to choose a great model. You only need to know his laptop dimensions.

Books are an often ignored gift idea. Nonetheless, it’s something you can’t go wrong with if you choose carefully. You can either choose a novel or a specialty book. If he is into fantasy, for example, you might choose a good fantasy book. Even if you don’t read them, there are plenty of reviews available online. A specialty book is great if he just began learning some new programming language and is very passionate about it.

Finally, geeky T-shirts (that those with Pi-day or the caffeine molecule) are generally a safe choice. Also, if he is very enthusiastic about a new gadget that he got, you may always buy some accessories for that. Speaking of gadgets – if you want to buy that, make sure you choose the latest version of anything. Having the latest updates of everything is part of what makes you a geek.

Now many of the ideas you might have can be on the higher-end price segment. The good news is that you can always find discounts if you know where to look. United Tech Store is the one-stop-shop for all geeky things. You can find everything here, from books to the latest Xbox 360 accessories. This is not an online store, but a comparison shopping engine focused on technology. This means it brings together products from several online stores, so that you get the best deals for the things you want to buy. You may also use it as a source of inspiration if you are still unsure – it has lots of product reviews, a tech news section, and a blog section focused on technology.

How to Achieve Your Future by Focusing on the Present

We all have goals & dreams that we are moving towards & striving to achieve. This is a good thing, or can it be bad also? How many of us never reach our dreams & goals & yet we have tried so hard & really thought about nothing else? I believe the mistake most of us make is that we do not focus on our present situation near enough.

Let me explain. Most of us see our present situation as simply marking time as we move towards our future goals & dreams, like a stepping stone that we use simply as a means to reaching our final destination. I truly believe herein lies our problem! We do not take the time to genuinely appreciate where we are today & all the great things we already have in our lives. As the old saying says, we should be focused on the journey & not on the destination, or we will miss all the beautiful scenery along the way.

Let’s use our job as an example. Now most of us want a promotion of some description. We have plans to become the supervisor or manager or general manager in our companies. But alas, most of us will never reach this goal, but will watch others achieve our goal instead. We will make many excuses as to why this happened, & in the end we will feel comforted in knowing that it was unfair, we were robbed, the other guy was the boss’s favorite, & whatever else makes us feel better.

What we should be doing, is focusing on the job we are currently in now. Forget where we want to get to & just focus on the present. You see, what we can control is our performance in our current job. We can decide to be the best we can possibly be in our current job. Now this may mean further education to have the skills we currently do not have to do our job better. It may mean working harder to produce better results than our peers. It could simply be a change of attitude to stop complaining & become a more loyal & supportive employee. By doing our current job to the very best of our abilities, we in fact give ourselves the very best chance of promotion, even though we have not been focusing on the promotion.

We can use this same example for any aspect of our lives. We all want a bigger, better home. But we should be appreciating the one we already have & making it the best it can possibly be. This will make us happier now, & will increase the value in the future when the time is right to sell & move up.

So the best thing for all of us to do to achieve our dreams & goals is to just focus on what we have & where we are now. Do the best & be the best we possibly can in our current situations, & we will give ourselves the very best chance of reaching our goals & dreams in the future. We have heard all the old sayings & they are all true: ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’, ‘patience is a virtue’, ‘every great journey begins with the first step’, & so on.

Have patience, have appreciation for what we already have, & take the time to help others be the very best they can. Do these things & we will all reach our goals & dreams, but more importantly, we will enjoy every day of the journey in getting there.
