Logitech MX Vertical Mouse – Looks Unusual But It’s Great

I have been using the Logitech MX Vertical Mouse for a few weeks now and when you first see it the thing that strikes you is the unusual design and shape.

A Credit Card Solution For Small Business

Small businesses , including me are always looking for portable solutions when seeing clients and recently I have switched to Square to process credit cards when i see clients.

The device costs only $19 to purchase and your transactions can be imported into many cloud based accounting packages including Xero ( my accounting package of choice ).
