PC Friendly Adding Machine – from digit punching to number crunching

pcfriendlyaddingmachine

If you’re big on numbers you’ll probably spend a fair amount of your time punching the digits on one of those there adding machine things. They’re compact, easy to understand – hey, what’s complex about a keypad? – and fast. We’ve seen bookkeepers do sums on these things faster than a 4 year old can clear a Rubik’s Cube. And that’s fast.

But if you really want to do spectacular things with your numerics, you’re going to need a bigger boat computer, which means you either have to start off by using a PC or you have to consider getting hold of one of these puppies. This PC Friendly Adding Machine connects to a nearby PC using wireless USB technology, which means you can punch in numbers straight to your Excel spreadsheet, Word document or tax evasion attorney with no problem.

Not only that, but you get a nice roll printout of your calculations too, just so you can check that Excel isn’t making things up when you do the entry. You know, that old triple entry bookkeeping we keep hearing about. The unit is priced at $169.95.

    Just as soon as my personal tax attorney gets out of prison, I'm buying him one of these, for the next time he does my books!
