Now - you and I both know that youTube, FaceBook and MyPlace are all legitimate business tools for generating contacts. You and I both know that - but some of us don't have an enlightened boss that understands yet how the modern world works. Finding you searching FaceBook for potential customers he or she is quite likely to quietly take you to one side and explain how your advanced, state of the art business skills are no longer required and introduce you to the large uniformed gentleman standing nearby, who will escort you from the building.
For people in this position an ideal aid arrived on our desk this week - a special Panic Button.
Simply plug this wee device into a spare USB port on your computer, install the accompanying software and when the boss appears - press the BIG RED BUTTON. Hey-presto, up pops a very traditional and business like spreadsheet. If spreadsheets aren't suitable you can create your own work-like desktop. £9.99 for job security - must be a bargain!
There is of course a serious reason why this invaluable tool dropped through our letter box. It's made by a company called 'Bluw'. They've been distributing their products successfully through a number of traditional gadget outlets in the UK for some time - products like the Panic Button, Finger Drums, Boxing Grannies and Desktop Girlfriend.
They've now launched their own on-line retail outlet at http://www.bluw.co.uk. If you're really stuck for that perfect, light-hearted gift for your office Santa's Sack then you might want to take a look.
