What was the handiest tool you purchased in 2010?

33 replies
Mine may seem strange, but it was a five button mouse!

I started getting sore wrists and fingers from a lot of copying and pasting on one of my projects, and I ebayed a five button mouse, and set the extra buttons to copy and paste. Magic!

The best software tools I bought were a few of the Bots from Incansoft.

What about you?

    SEOlinkvine, SENuke, and Traffic Geyser. Made a HUGE difference is how much time I was spending working for the same results, which then turned into much more traffic :-)

    Didn't know that a 5 button mouse exists. I might get one too.

    I bought a 1 TB external hard disk as i had suffered from the data loss when my laptop's hard disk crashed last year and i ended up losing the data. Atleast, i have peace of mind now that all my data is regularly synchronized and i have backup.
    The best software i bought was SEnuke. It speeds up the processes.

    I Go Hard = "Slanguage" for putting forth a lot of effort.

    Don't be an arse and try to flip something you clearly have no knowledge of against me.

      Flexsqueeze theme, hands down. Best thing I bought last year. I relly like how quickly I can put up a site that looks good. And I don't have to be a CSS expert in order to get results with it.

      Some CSS knowledge is a big help, but I would rather spend my time on making sites and promoting them.

      My best purchase of the year was by far Camtasia. Great piece of kit for producing Videos quickly and easily.

    My two most recent purchases were Scrapebox (I need to learn how to use it more easily!) and Backlink Energizer.

    BE is pretty simple to set up and frankly, I'm looking forward to Google's spiders beginning to access the blog networks more frequently so that indexing of links goes more quickly/easily. It's like a really, really good autoblogger as well.

      I'm gonna say my lightweight, flexible, flat bottomed shoes that I use when I go for walks.

      They help me focus on every step I take so I can clear my mind each day from the massive amounts of info & decisions I'm try to process.

      About 10 minutes into the walk... my mind is clear and I start picturing nut & bolt answers to the projects & tasks I've been working on all day.

      I know that's not the normal kind of "tool" you're probably looking for... but it's helped me a lot this year.

      Oh yeah, I got Market Samurai this year as well, (seems longer than that!) and used it every day since!

      Ubot Studio and Optimise Press look good, I'll be filing this post away for reference in 2011!

      I'll be needing a good video camera next year, I've seen a few posts around on different types.
      The Kodak Zi8 seems to be popular!

      Cheers

        I got a Zi8 a couple of weeks ago and am really pleased with it. Very easy to use and quality is excellent. Well worth investing in... especially as you can pick it up on Amazon for around £75.

      I managed to talk the missus into letting me get a 42 inch! For the "Business" of course!! It is very handy to have multiple programs up side by side rather than clicking back and forth!

      It wasn't to watch movies on of course!

    The Web Studio 5 Web Builder/editor, truly one fine piece of software with "everythink" at your fingertips. For 4 years I used one webhost and one html editor (theirs) until I needed something better that they wouldn't/couldn't supply - at a price Web Studio5 was the answer to all my problems except one. I add One Time Offers to JV Giveaways and the only software I found that creates the images that's compatible is a FREE one called My Free Website Builder - amazing little addition.
