On the road, in the office or somewhere in between? Here's how to stay connected.
Present yourself: No presentation-giving entrepreneur is complete without a projector. When your presentations need to break away from the PowerPoint norm, the $1,369 Toshiba TLP-XC2000U LCD projector can accommodate. The TLP-XC2000U has 2,000 ANSI lumens of brightness and XGA native resolution. And at 8.8 pounds, it can easily be taken out on road trips. The integrated document camera is especially handy for sharing 3-D items, giving hands-on demonstrations or showing documents that don't fit well into digital formats. The camera comes with advanced features, including a 16x zoom, an LED light and a 3-megapixel resolution.
Free bird: Not everybody likes receiving e-mail through a web browser. Luckily, Mozilla Thunderbird 2, a powerful and free desktop e-mail program, has much to offer in that arena. Some of the program's top features include advanced folder organization options, message tagging, message history navigation, message alerts and a strong search function. Privacy and security features are of the utmost importance when it comes to handling your e-mail. Thunderbird 2 rises to the challenge with remote image blocking, intelligent spam filtering and phishing protection. More advanced users can experiment with add-on and customization options, such as contact management and even VoIP. This open source program is available for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.
