Tech that David uses for work - the Magic List smile

A year or so ago I did a podcast on my Connected Home which I will most likely update this year.  However, to cover the other side of my life (work), this is the magic list.

 

---

 

I often get asked what type of general and assistive tech stuff I use for work. So here is most of the stuff I use to allow me to test, evaluate, demo, podcast, and use.

 

Certainly makes accessing the technology that much easier, as I have it at my finger tips, just grab what I need and go.

 

The tech listed is separate to what my family and I use at home.  I.e. I don’t have to strip anything out of home in order to use when I go out and about for work.

 This was my aim as it got to annoying for my family with me constantly nicking stuff for work, so my tech lab was born.
