Can you help me out?

I need your help.

Do you have plans for this year? I have big plans to help people like you ...but I need your help.

Take part in the Timbo On Tech Reader Survey 2015/16.

A Great Year

2015 was a great year for me and I plan to make 2016 even better. The thing is, I never make New Year's resolutions.

I learnt a long time ago that resolutions simply don't stick, but this year I've been encouraged by Michael Hyatt to set some goals that I can actually keep.

My goals for Timbo On Tech are pretty big because I want to make a real difference in people's lives. However, I also know from experience that there's another vital ingredient that I can't do without: that's you!

What Motivates You?

I need to know what motivates you:
What are your big issues as you deal with technology at work and at home?
I need to know whether my writing works for you:
Does it hit the nail on the head, or does it just miss the mark?

I'm also thinking of launching some cool (and of course, incredibly useful!) products this year. Your input could determine which ones make the grade and even what goes into them.

To let me know the answer to these questions, there's just one thing I need you to do:

Answer the super short survey.

See you soon!

How To Stop Your Phone Hurting Your Neck

Painful neck at your desk? It may be how you use your phone.

Computers can be a pain in the neck, sometimes literally.

The classic image of busy offices is that of Big City stockbrokers, who watch multiple screens while performing numerous tasks.

These are fast-paced, fast-talking people, squeezing their phones between one ear and their shoulder, but there's a problem.

Why You May Need A Monitor Stand

Stiff neck and shoulders? You may need a monitor stand.

A monitor stand (or "monitor riser") could be the cure for your stiff neck.

An incorrectly positioned monitor is only one possible cause, but a stiff or painful neck is a common complaint among computer workers. Are you one of them?

Computers can be a pain in the neck (and back and shoulders)!

A 2012 study found that a third of computer workers complained of back, neck or shoulder pain. Sadly, it looks like that situation hasn't changed.

Recently, I polled my readers, asking them the top 2 questions they had about RSI and ergonomics at their work desk. The clear "winner" of the survey - and by a significant margin - was this question:

Important: Newsletters Going Missing

Emails ending up in Spam? Add me to your contact list, so you can continue to receive updates!

Email Newsletter Problems

Thank you to everyone for supporting me and my writing, by subscribing to my email newsletter on Timbo On Tech. In particular, I want to welcome new arrivals, following the recent RSI survey.

It has come to my attention that some emails sent over the bank holiday weekend have gone missing and ended up in the spam folder for several people. I think it's most likely to happen in GMail - thanks also to those who told me!
