Trifunk’s 2012 holiday gift guide for the business-minded

It’s no secret that the crew here at Trifunk like their innovative and useful new equipment. Ok, we like our gadgets. While we could hand over a list of all of the different the items we have been drooling over lately, we thought that we could be a little more practical and give you some items to add to your wish list that you can also use for your business.

1. The Evernote Pocket Moleskine

It’s a Moleskine that let’s you use your iPhone to turn physical notes into digital Evernotes.

“The Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine is the first paper notebook specifically designed to bring your physical notes to your Evernote account. Notes from your Evernote Smart Notebook can even be tagged and organized in your Evernote account automatically, using the included Smart Stickers and Evernote’s new Page Camera feature for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.” (Evernote website)

2. Timbuk2 Control Laptop TSA-Friendly Messenger

It carries all your stuff. It looks great. It flies well.

“Leave one of your gadgets at home? Stop talking crazy. Our premiere oxford nylon laptop briefcase invites one and all – laptop, iPad/e-reader, power bricks, cords and essentials. The padded TSA-compliant laptop compartment protects, while buffing your laptop to a shine.” (Timbuk2 website)

3. DODOcase iPad Case (“Creator” is our favourite)

Everyone with an iPad will need a case at some point. Why not pick one that’s amazing?

“Inspired by artists, scientists and writers, these cases are colorful and smart and will protect your iPad in style. Featuring three original hand-drawn patterns silkscreened on textured cloth and a bold, contrasting spine, each case is timeless in its simplicity yet fashionable in its palette… Handcrafted by traditional bookbinders in San Francisco.” (DODOcase website)

4. Jawbone UP

This is a wristband that tracks your physical activity. No, it really tracks it. It will even buzz to let you know that you’ve been sitting at your desk for too long and need to stretch your legs.

“The wristband tracks your movement and sleep in the background. The app displays your data, lets you add things like meals and mood, and delivers insights that keep you moving forward.” (Jawbone website)

5. New Potato Technologies Classic Match Foosball

We admit it. This one is a little less about business and more about blowing off steam after a stressful day of business. It’s a mini foosball table you hook your iPad into!

“Now you can work your pull, snake, bank and bread and butter shots, fake out your opponent and deliver the ball into the goal with a resounding “thunk”, all on a table top foosball dock for your iPad. Just like real tournament tables, Classic Match Foosball brings the complete foosball experience to your iPad!” (New Potato Technologies website)
