Adam Radosavljevic, Shutterstock.com We have already reviewed six of them. 7. Pamper the best in terms of price-quality tablet – Apple iPad. For him, there is a very cute musical accessory Bone Horn Stand. This is a special stand that allows you to install the iPad vertically and equipped with a built-in sound amplifier in the style of a tube of an old gramophone. This combination of vintage and practicality is also pleasing by the fact that they ask for very little money. Only 700 rubles. 8. There are many applications for reading books on Android devices – tablets and smartphones. But among them it is worth to highlight such a pleasant program as eReader Prestigio. This free application is essentially a thoroughly developed classic FBReader with the addition of a cool “under the bookshelf” interface. All the delights of the eReader Prestigio are revealed on the large screen of the tablet, where the company’s graphical find allows you to comfortably manage your entire library. Well, you should not forget about the built-in bookstore with a base of 230,000 books – a useful addition! 9. Owners of a solid fleet of portable devices are in dire need of additional sources of energy, because their gadgets are constantly being discharged! And while tiny nuclear power plants are not yet in operation, it is necessary to get out with the help of external batteries. Very capacious, with a large number of different charging connectors, with a built-in solar battery for recharging in the field, these devices can help out great when traveling out of town. The easiest and most correct way is to take a universal device, from which you can power all kinds of gadgets. For example, Energizer MPS-EN-XP18000.B is excellent for these purposes: it charges 3 devices at once, costs about 6,000 rubles. 10. The coolest smartphone app for ROCCAT Power-Grid will appeal to any gamer. This free program is installed on the smartphone, and then synchronized via Wi-Fi with the main computer. And while the owner is hacking into some exciting game, ROCCAT Power-Grid intercepts all messages from social networks and messengers and displays them on its screen. So the user doesn’t have to turn off the game to chat with someone via Skype, it can be done with a smartphone. Also, without interrupting the game, on the screen of a portable device, you can watch and change the parameters of the operating system, measure the temperature of the processor and video card, monitor traffic. In addition to purely aesthetic pleasure from the fact that to perform all these functions, the game does not have to be turned off, it is worth remembering that not every toy responds adequately to repeated presses of Alt + Tab. For example, the famous Skyrim will easily fly out without being preserved. So all gamers are advised to check the availability of the ROCCAT Power-Grid for their smartphones and install it as soon as possible. 11. If we already remembered computer games, let’s mention such an important aspect as the game on a laptop. The laptop, deprived of the normal cooling system, in summertime can warm up almost to the critical temperature. So the cooling pad in the coming months will be a real salvation for every lover to feel like Dovakin or a tankman. Of the inexpensive representatives of this class, I note Canyon CNP-NS6B (for 16 ″) – the cost is up to 1000 rubles, reliable, lightweight and durable. 12. Having cooled the laptop, it is worth thinking about yourself. A small USB fan can be a real rescue on hot summer days. Fortunately, when a computer or laptop is at hand, it is always where to connect. It’s also great that it’s harder to catch a cold from such a kid than from a huge (and expensive) air conditioner. Through the efforts of Chinese manufacturers of such windmills on the market a dime a dozen. So for 300−500 rubles, you can easily look out for yourself a suitable model. 13. Let’s be frank: it is difficult to meet a keyboard worker who would have the biceps of a seasoned bodybuilder. Therefore, the purchase and installation in the house of the TV (especially a large TV) is fraught with some difficulties. Fortunately, there is a special application for this. It is called Samsung AR Simulator and allows you to try on where and how a new TV will fit in with an apartment using a special piece of paper with a code and an Android smartphone. You can enumerate ways to optimize work and personal space indefinitely, I’ll probably stop at 13. The main thing is to define your goal and tools, because with the right approach you can not only improve the productivity and usability of the technology, but also make many processes fully automatic.
