Top 5 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

If you’re a music lover, it’s most likely that you’ve tried a number of headphones. You’ve gone through one or two fantastic expensive ones, and perhaps quite a few cheap ones you find at convenience shops, and although you’ve found one or two you like, there’s one thing that has always made it difficult for you to feel completely liberated listening to your favorite tracks: wires.

Wires can get stuck on everything, not to mention they get tangled while you aren’t looking. Bluetooth headphones are great because they give you the best of both worlds: they provide the great sound you need with the freedom to move, and here are the very best.

5 Awesome Laptop Stands for Your Office

We all love our laptops. They are small, convenient, powerful, life saving, and our daily source of entertainment. Finishing all of the work you need to complete is so much easier when you have the mobility to take your work anywhere. And when you can take your work anywhere, you can work for longer. Often, however, we spend hours upon hours sitting hunched over our computer, and as amazing as they are, working on them ends up being the cause of our painful back and neck aches.

When you already have to finish your work that requires so much time and effort, you don’t want to feel its effects on your body as well. The best way to prevent these body aches is through the use of a laptop stand. Laptop stands are stands that usually place your laptop higher up, easing your back and preventing you from bending over any longer. They vastly improve ergonomics, too. There are many on the market, and these are some of the best:

Made out of a single, slim piece of aluminum, the mStand raises your laptop to eye level (5.9 inches), a height comparable to the iMac. And because it is so slim, its appearance is not clunky whatsoever and does not distract. It is compatible with the Apple MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and other similar computers with a depth less than 10.4 inches. Its silver color blends perfectly with silver computers. It even has the same sand blasted finish that matches Apple notebooks. It has a tilt design that brings the screen closer. Because the computer is raised, it also improves airflow, making sure the computer does not get too hot. This elegant stand could be just what you need.

9 Free Tools To Help Get Newbie Freelancers Started

If you don’t already do freelance work, chances are you will within the next few years. Full-time jobs are on the decline. Companies have laid of millions of employees and have no plans to re-hire for those positions. When they need work done, they’ll hire freelancers.

This can be both a blessing and a curse for people seeking worse. Freelance opportunities and wages are increasing, so people who seek work can certainly find it. At the same time, it’s difficult to get started. Becoming a freelancer is akin to starting a new business. You need to spend money up front for the proper tools. But how can you spend money that you don’t have? It’s not as though a bank will give you a loan to start a freelance career.

(Nor should you ask the bank for money in this situation, but that’s a topic for an entirely different post.)

The best solution is to take advantage of the best free tools the web has to offer. Many of these are not your best solution in the long run. But they will provide you with adequate services in the short term. Try these nine free tools to get a jump start on your career without going into debt.
