Information on working while on the go.

Portable Devices, Laptops and Wireless

  • Powering Your Small Business With Tablet Devices - With more processing power than smart phones, the latest generation of tablet PCs is redefining the mobile computing market. By combining productivity suites, Internet access and mobile apps, tablets offer a powerful computing experience for traveling business owners -- allowing users to catch up on email or complete quick tasks without booting up a laptop.

Mobile Business Apps

  • Password Managers Guard Mobile Browsing - With more of us relying on mobile access and a deluge of passwords to remember, smart phone apps designed to help people generate and manage strong passwords can provide valuable security for online accounts. Web and mobile apps will store and protect login credentials and other sensitive data so you don't have to remember it.
  • Using Your Smart Phone to Accept Mobile Payments - Customers expect to be able to use credit and debit cards for nearly any purchase, so it makes sense for your business to offer the convenience of accepting payment cards outside traditional retail outlets. Using a smart phone as a virtual payment terminal allows you to make sales and provide services from nearly anywhere, and to be paid on the spot -- without the cost and payment risks of sending paper invoices after the transaction.

Locating Local Services

  • Protecting Data Privacy on Public Wi-Fi - The ease and convenience of getting online at a public Wi-Fi hotspot has to be balanced with the risk of your signal being compromised while you're sending data back and forth. A few simple precautions should be followed at public hotspots to protect confidential customer or personal data from online eavesdroppers.
