This session will present numerous ancillary technologies that are very inexpensive (sometimes free) to install and use and can help you in your business or personal life. From websites to hand-held apps to devices, this session should provide each participant with at least one ancillary technology they will take away to investigate and likely use. This session can be a springboard for a future collaborative forum helping each other "be aware" of ancillary technology developments.
