Free at Last...thanks to Jabra!

I despise headsets, or at least used to.  I always found the quality of the conversation not quite the same as with a handheld- static, echos, noise pollution, etc- yet on the other hand, they were always convenient.

Now Jabra has a product which seems to solve issues of quality and adds the additional benefit of being wireless.  This feature has uncoupled me from respecting the length of whatever wires were chaining me to my office phone; now I get to roam freely, limited only by the 120M range of the wireless device.

After a few more weeks of testing, maybe I will now at least "like" headsets :)

PC Mall Small Business Network

PC Mall's Small Business Network, if you have not checked it out, do yourself a favor and create an account: click here -

One of the biggest problems facing small businesses- usually defined as less than 100 employees, more frequently 1-25 employees- is in creating and sustaining an effective technology infrastructure.  Another problem is being able to expertly network with other small business owners.  With PC Mall SBN not only are some of PC Mall's technical resources made available to small business owners, members are also encouraged to meet, greet and connect with other members.

Here are a few of my favorite features:

Knowledge Bank- This provides whitepapers on a variety of topics- advertising, finance, tech trends, etc.

Business Experts- Leverage PC Mall's experts on a variety of topics to help with your issues.  PC Mall has experts in sales, marketing, and of course IT.

People Connect and Business Events- Make friends with other members and/or attend events in your area to help with your networking goals.

BusinessMakers Small Business Network Show- This is one of my favorite features.  It is a video series which highlights and showcases the businesses of members of the PC Mall Small Business Network.

There are a ton of other features, just create an account and check out how the SBN can work for you.
