Don't-Miss Business Stories

LotusLive Meetings

IBM's online conferencing service takes care of the basics, but it's missing several features its competitors offer.

Canon Pixma iP4820

A solid choice for home and student users, the iP4820 provides appealing speed and print quality.

HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn

A small office or home office will like the speed and automatic duplexing, but the trade-off is pricey toner.

Moderate Embarrassment laptop messenger bag

Crumpler's Moderate Embarrassment is a fun and protective messenger-style laptop bag.

Tacts for iPhone

This app looks to improve upon what you get with the built-in Contacts app, with better support for groups. And while it delivers on that promise, some features in Tacts are lacking.

SoundNote for iPad

This note-taking app, which records audio while letting you type or scribble notes on your iPad, is not without its share of limitations. But it's also an impressive app that should interest students, workers, or anyone else who has to take notes during lectures, meetings, or presentations.

This laser printer looks like a bargain, but its pricey toner makes it good only for low-volume use.

12-core Mac Pro (Mid 2010)

The 12-core Mac Pro is certainly not for everyone. It is expensive and unimpressive when performing everyday computing tasks. However, for anyone who makes a living working on high-end applications that can use and abuse the 24 virtual cores, the amount of time saved on processor-intensive tasks results in the 12-core Mac Pro being a bargain.

This near-perfect document viewer packs a lot of power, thanks to a plentiful set of features.
