Work From Home: 20 Tech Tips

Reduce Office Clutter: Go wireless.

If your home office is a tangle of cords and cables, you’re living in the Dark Ages. The newest printers and scanners are wireless, meaning you won’t have to trip to find your desk.

For a simplified space, use an all-in-one machine, like the Canon PIXMA MX870, a Wi-Fi-enabled printer and scanner. Even nearby smartphones and other devices can send documents and photos to the printer. Wireless printers are especially handy for families. Store the device in a common area so that others can print without disturbing you during work hours.

HP’s new web-connected printers are also a smart choice for the home office. If you have ideas on-the-go or work from other places, simply email the printer your documents. Printed copies will await you at home.

    Nice... but too bad I'll soon have a Skyrim icon on my desktop. I don't suppose there's a program to block that?

    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...
