If you’re the owner of a small retail or food services business, you might not have the capital that’s required to invest in a full-service, advanced point of sale (POS) system. The necessary hardware alone can easily run upwards of $3,000.
That’s why so many of today’s small business owners are using tablets and other low-cost mobile POS systems in place of a traditional cash register. Many cost-conscious businesses are even using smartphones to process customers’ credit and debit card payments.
But even though tablet computers and mobile POS systems are less expensive than traditional set-ups, they still represent a very significant investment. And if you’re like most small business operators, you probably take great care to get the most out of your digital investments by employing the best accessories. NuShield screen protectors are an especially smart and inexpensive way to get a bigger return on your investment in mobile POS technology.

According to a recent survey conducted by Consumer Reports, the most common repair made to damaged smartphones and tablets is screen repair. Screens are most susceptible to scratches, cracks, breaks and discoloration when they’re exposed to the sun for extended periods of time.
And yet while most smartphone and tablet owners do invest in protective cases that protect their devices from falls or accidents, the majority of those cases don’t come with appropriate screen protection.

In today’s economy, nearly any new innovation that hints at an ability to increase a manufacturing firm’s profitability is heartily embraced. Without a doubt, one of the most sweepingly innovative changes to arrive in the manufacturing sector over the past few years has been the use of mobile computing applications — or ‘apps,’ as they’re more commonly known — in the workplace.
The environment of a manufacturing facility is fast-paced and deadline driven. And so any work process development that increases employee productivity without sacrificing safety is more than welcome. In fact, it’s often celebrated, and for good reason:
A Motorola survey recently revealed that that manufacturers who incorporate mobile applications into their processes saved a daily average of 42 minutes per employee.
Who could have guessed that allowing a telephone onto the factory floor would one day be encouraged?

Between smartphones, tablets and your computer, it’s likely you spend a great deal of your day staring at a backlit screen. That almost certainly has something to do with why your eyes tend to ache at the end of the day.
Let’s face it: The human eye simply wasn’t designed to deal with that level of lighting strain. And if you happen to wear bifocal or multifocal lenses, your situation is likely even worse.
The problem you’ve been having while reading on screens goes a bit further than just having to deal with lighting issues. If you wear bifocal and multifocal lenses, or even if you happen to have farsighted vision, you probably need to tilt your head at a fairly specific angle in order to properly view your mobile device’s screen display. That can but a great deal of strain on your neck. If you spend enough time on your tablet, smartphone or e-reader, this can lead to some pretty serious posture problems.
You may have heard about a stop-gap solution that some device users have adapted: wearing computer glasses. And yet while these glasses will make it easier for you to see the screen, they’re not without their own problems. Consider the following:

See if this doesn’t sound familiar: Your new smartphone or tablet was the best gift you unwrapped over the holidays this year, and you couldn’t wait load it up with all your favorite apps. Playing with your new toy brought you an almost childlike sense of glee. But after only 20 or 30 minutes, you noticed that your new device’s screen was already covered in greasy fingerprints — it wasn’t not looking anywhere near as shiny and new as it did just a half-hour earlier.
So … what can you possibly do? You can protect your screen, of course. And here’s the good news: Doing so is actually lot easier and a lot cheaper than you might imagine.
