5 Favorite Promotional Computer Accessories
Yesterday, we received brand new computers in the Promo Marketing office. When I started here years ago, we had just upgraded to the then-new iMac G5s, and while impressive at the time they now have trouble running some of the newer software* I need for work.
So you can imagine our excitement when, unannounced, a fleet of shiny aluminum iMacs arrived on our desks. But while everyone was oohing and ahhing at the Photo Booth and the Magic Mouse, I was hard at work** on the news. And while I'm a PC man through and through, I've got to admit, these things are pretty. The screens are gorgeous and the operating system is slick, and it doesn't surprise me that people become so enthralled with Apple products.
Even though I'm using this primarily for business***, it still feels like I got a new toy and I wanted to personalize it, so I turned to our search engine to check out the latest in computer accessories and peripherals. Technology is a naturally advanced and exciting area, and I found dozens of fun accessories, but these five are my picks for the best promotional computer products.
1. On-The-Air Desktop Speaker and Microphone from Leed's
I remember when the first voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) technology came out, and the first VoIP phone I got in the late '90s looked, well, like a phone from the late '90s. The hardware has since come a long way, with headsets and mics you can clip to your collar, but this microphone from Leed's adds an extra level of panache. Not only does it work well and look good on your desk, it's the perfect microphone to use for webcasts and videos.
2. Indoor/Outdoor Wireless Speaker from MMI
No matter how advanced computers get, built-in speakers always sound muffled and tinny. Unless you're only listening to the Windows start-up chime (fun fact: Brian Eno wrote that on, of course, a Mac), you need to use external speakers. MMI's wireless set works with MP3 players, computers and TVs, another victim of bad factory speakers. Their 300' range and remote control ensure your music can stay on the move with you.
