Work From Home: 20 Tech Tips

Get out of the house: Work from anywhere.

Maybe you prefer to work in less traditional spaces—in a park or on a city bench—where WiFi isn’t available. If you don’t own a tablet and are sick of typing notes on your tiny smartphone screen, consider getting a portable WiFi hotspot.

Verizon’s MiFi is a popular choice for users hoping to connect from anywhere. The mobile hotspot provides a 3G connection for up to five devices, including laptops and PDAs.

For smartphone owners, a simpler option might be to tether your device to your laptop. Most Android devices can easily provide connections for other devices. AT&T also recently released a tethering plan for its iPhones.

    Some people may not even made a jump from Hotmail... Windows Live also have a calendar for those who use Hotmail... Don't use it very much, but I think its a pretty capable online calendar as well...
