Back to School Tech

August 28th, 2014

Every store now has that big sign "BACK TO SCHOOL" and for office supply fiends like me, you are chomping at the bit to buy new pens and notepads with colorful highlighters. Or you could be looking for those products that are going to streamline your school year. With all the technology that is now out there, you can just about by some type of tech equipment for every situation! Well here are our top 5 necessities for a long school day on campus!

  • Laptop/iPad/Tablet Case: If you are going to spend so much money on your equipment you need to make sure it lasts throughout the year. It needs to endure your desks, your backpacks, lunches and libraries. You need to take care of your tech and it will take care of you! Check out amazon for some cheap and cute protective gear!
  • Portable Storage: There are so many options now for portable storage, you no longer need to just use a thumb drive or as some of you may remember, a floppy disk! Check out the IOGEAR MediaShare. This will hold your music, documents and presentations in on place!
  • Printer/Scanner: Have you ever waited in line at the library to print out a paper due in 10 minutes and had a line of 4 people in front of you and that person right before you is printing 100 pages of notes... well avoid the lines, buy your own printer!
  • Cables: Chargers, chargers, chargers. You need to buy extra chargers, you have roommates, and your roommates have pets and friends. You need to make sure that your phone AKA your alarm clock is charged and ready to wake you up!
  • Back up Battery: On campus there are a ton of outlets, but when you are hungry and need to study on your iPad while you stuff your face in the cafeteria, you are limited, bring a portable battery to make sure you can use your devices anywhere and you are not limited to sitting on the floor in a hallway to study!

All in all, use your tech to be prepared! Make a tech plan of action, your bag might be a tad heavier but you will be way more comfortable in the long run! Happy Back to School Shopping!
