New tools: CompanionLink, SP400 Smart-Pointer

I want to make a quick plug for two new tools that I’ve been using.

CompanionLink Software gave me a trial copy of CompanionLink, which synchronizes PIM/CRM data with your phone or other supported desktop applications and web-based services (like Google, Act, Goldmine, etc.).  I use it to sync my iPhone with Act 2009 Premium.  I find that syncing tools are particularly hard to get working smoothly, but this product worked smoothly and consistently from my first use of it.

 

SP400 Smart-Pointer (Silver) 2.4Ghz RF Wireless Presenter with Mouse Function and Laser PointerI also recently purchased the Satechi SP400 2GB Smart-Pointer 2.4Ghz RF Wireless Presenter with Mouse Function and Laser Pointer.  Thanks to Taimur Hassan for his help researching this product category.  In a very small form factor, this product has a laser pointer, remote mouse, 2GB USB key, and standard presentation controls. If you make presentations regularly, this is a very small investment ($40) to help your audience absorb your material and reduce your risk that the host of your presentation will not have a functioning remote projection device available.
