Simple Products I Like a Lot - Post #3

It took me awhile, but I've finally realized that "stuff" isn't going to make me happy. In fact, the reverse is almost true. Big houses, expensive cars, clothes, boats, etc. just don't deliver the happiness or satisfaction the ad writers promise.

If you completely eliminate your expectation that "stuff" will make you happy, it's a real treat when you buy something you just love. Here's a simple product I've bought recently that I just really like:

  1. RF Wireless Presentation Remote -- Presentation Pilot Pro -- -- This is the best product of its type, hands down. 3 killer features. Has a "dock" where you insert the USB receiver for storage. This disables all the buttons, so if they get pressed while the remote is in the projector case it doesn't run the battery down. Forward and reverse buttons are buffered -- no matter how long you hold the button, it just advances one slide. Disqualifying defect of the Targus competitive product. And it has a "black" button -- invokes the windows command that switches a PowerPoint to "black" -- you can blank the screen, talk for awhile, and then come back. Or start from a black screen. One problem -- it uses a watch battery, which runs down fast if you use the laser pointer. A separate AAA battery laser pointer is recommended.

I hope these product recommendations are useful to you. They're well-designed, great inexpensive products that do everything they're supposed to do, and do it better than you'd expect. If you have products that you're totally enthused about, please click "Comment" below and post them here.
