Working on a laptop computer most of the day does not really do much for one’s figure – I have even heard it referred to as “Geek Gut” and “Blogger’s Butt”. Personally, I love to walk, ride bikes, and play golf, but there isn’t always time or the weather is bad. Riding a stationary bike or walking on the treadmill can be so boring!
Enter SurfShelf! You can attach the SurfShelf.com to your treadmill, stationary bike or elliptical trainer and watch videos, catch up on your RSS feeds, read your email, and more.
Now, I don’t think you can pound out an in-depth blog post or design a website while jogging on your treadmill, but you certainly could combine some of your more basic tasks with some exercise and take care of two tasks at once. Your heart, waistline, and inbox would thank you.
I think it is a pretty cool gadget actually! What do you think? Would you use it?
As a web designer and general web geek, I am always looking for new tools for my business. I have recently decided that I just might want a Wacom tablet, but I am not sure if I should get one or not.
I have been looking at the Bamboo Fun (Medium) Black Tablet with Pen, Mouse & Graphics Software because it seems to be the middle of the road version – plenty of features but not the huge price tag.
Anyhow, I would love to know if any of you already have one and what you think of it. Do you use it a lot? Is it easy to use? Would you recommend it?
