In 2010, I reviewed the ErgoTron WorkFit-S sit-stand workstation. Last month, I posted a follow up with how I’ve fared with the equipment over the last year. One of the issues I mentioned related specifically to workflow efficiency when using the product: by itself, it can be difficult to perform tasks that involve anything other than your keyboard, mouse, and display.

Well, there must have been a little bird watching me attempt to clamp my iPad to the keyboard arm to do some studying one day, or reading my mind whenever I had to access some item from my desktop periodically, because accessories were released not long afterward that addressed these exact situations. Enter the Tablet Holder and Work Surface accessories.

Heya! A friend posed a question today about automatically downloading podcasts to their iPhone. It’s a pretty straightforward process, but there are a few things you need to do to make this happen.

In a former life as a retail toadie, I had the pleasure of hawking a ridiculously expensive 11″ OLED display from Sony. At $2500, we sure didn’t sell them quickly, but that didn’t stop people from drooling when they saw it. The image capabilities of a well crafted (read, not your cellphone) OLED are downright disturbingly realistic.

OLED stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode, in which the pixels themselves are both the color and light sources for the image. It’s more comparable to plasma than to LCD in this regard, because LCD displays shine the light through the pixels, where as plasma (PDP) pixels create their own light when energized. Where PDP and OLED diverge is in how much juice is required to get the light flowing — OLED requires far less of it than plasma, which among other things allows the panel to be much thinner, and even flexible.

And hopefully, we’re on the cusp of these things becoming mainstream, and potentially more affordable than what’s available now. LG is supposedly going to display a 55″ set at CES this month.

Start saving now; you’re going to want one.
