As a business owner what technology do you think helps the most?

I use the ipad, the cell phone.

I wish there was a way to consolidate both into one.

I was thinking of trying to get a printer to work with the ipad

Upon some reviews and comments I have heard from some members here, I think the Blue-tooth will be the next peice of technology I invest in.

I spend alot of time on the phone, and I need to continue working, I think this will help with that.

I've been using a bluetooth for years

You may look and feel like a douche wearing one but your productivity won't suffer because of it

If you want a really good dependable Bluetooth, go to amazon and check out the Motorola H17.

Thanks for the tip. Think I'll order one. I hate bluetooth headsets, but I'm getting to the point that productivity is suffering, like you mention. :censored:

Do they run on electricity?

It is a mobile devise that fire departments and emergency personal STILL carry 24/7 because of its reliability...
Wrong the "pagers" that firefighters carry are not even close to the pager you use. The technology is not the same.

The pagers the fd uses are actually just a one way radio. The pager is "opened" by certain tones broadcast over the radio frequency, once the pager is opened it will receive any transmission on that frequency. These pagers only work when in range of the fire departments radio towers.

The pager you use is through a third party provider, just like a cell phone. It is subject to the same type of interruptions in service as any cell service. Those types of pagers are actually prohibited from being the primary notification system for emergency responders. There are quite a few departments that utilize smart phone apps, text messaging, or even pagers like the one you have as a secondary notification. However, because they are not 100% reliable they can't be used for the primary notification.

Stop using facts to try and counter B4T's opinion.

The H17 is a few years old but its the best one I have found to use.

When my last one broke a few months ago after like 4 years of daily use I bought another one.

You can get one for $25 on Amazon with free shipping if you have Prime.
