Here, your host Ray Sidney-Smith and Augusto Pinaud with Francis Wade and Art Gelwicks. Raymond Sidney-Smith 0:17 And Welcome back, everybody to productivity cast, the weekly show about all things personal productivity, I’m Ray Sidney Smith. Augusto Pinaud 0:23 I am Augusto Pinaud. Francis Wade 0:24I’m Francis Wade. Art Gelwicks 0:25 And I’m Art Gelwicks. Raymond Sidney-Smith 0:26Welcome, gentlemen, and welcome to our listeners to this episode, I’m really excited because we are coming near the end of the year. And that means holiday gifts, we get a chance to talk to you about really holiday gifts that you might want to ask your loved ones, your caring individuals in your home to purchase for you. Or these might be gifts that might be useful to another personal productivity enthusiast in your life. And so what we’re going to do today is we’re going to cover some gifts that we think particularly enthusiasts would enjoy knowing about and receiving as a gift. And so with that, let’s do a round robin episode, where each of us talks about one gift at a time. And some of us probably know about the gifts, some of us probably have questions about the gifts you chose. And and we’ll just kind of go from there. So with that, art, I’m going to pick on you first, what is your first holiday gift choice? Well, Art Gelwicks 1:27my first one is, it’s kind of mundane, but it’s really useful if you’re in an environment where you’re working with multiple computers. And those of us we’re working from home now often find ourselves in that case, I personally have multiple devices that I need to interact with. So what I’m highlighting is what’s called a four port, USB KVM, which is keyboard video mouse switch.
