Take a seat

At Staples, we provide a broad range of office chairs and seating, so you can find the right fit for you. Select from multifunctional task chairs, computer & desk chairs, drafting stools and more. If you will be using your new chair for multiple hours a day, make sure to get an ergonomic office chair to prevent unnecessary strain.
Comfort, all day long
Office furniture that is the proper size and height makes a big difference. When shopping for chairs, the height of the seat should be adjustable so that the user’s feet can sit flat on the floor with their knees at right angles. Likewise, the accompanying office desk should be at a height where the users’ elbows can sit comfortably at right angles at their sides while typing or writing.

Show seasonal allergies who’s boss
If you suffer from seasonal allergies, now is when they are at their worst. Stock up on allergy season’s most important products to keep your home, classroom, and office allergen-free. Start with an air purifier to strip the air of allergens like pollen and pet dander and replace existing air filters for improved air quality. Frequently dust, wipe down hard surfaces, and vacuum carpets and furniture to help eliminate pollen tracked in from outside and dander left behind by pets. When leaving the house, check the pollen count and bring a face mask to help filter the air you breath outside.
No matter what you do, it’s unlikely that the symptoms of seasonal allergies can be avoided entirely. Make sure to have over-the-counter cold and allergy medications on hand to battle symptoms, and stock up on facial tissues so you’ll always have one available when you need them.
Spring (Cleaning) is in the air
Spring cleaning and decluttering is a tradition meant to refresh our spaces for the year ahead. Staples has everything you need to clear out the clutter, store and organize your belongings, and all the right cleaning supplies.
Clear out the clutter
Start by preparing a checklist and make sure you have all the necessary supplies. Use storage bins and a label maker to make sorting and organizing easier. Prepare extra boxes for donations and trash bags for the things you no longer need. Look for decorative boxes & baskets that will compliment your home’s décor and use them to organize. You can also use closet organizers and storage drawers anywhere they are needed.
Start with the basics
An all-purpose cleaner, cleaning brush and microfiber cloths will clean most surfaces. Use a duster to remove unwanted dirt and furniture polish to revitalize wood surfaces. Upgrade your broom, dustpan, wet mop, and vacuum to make cleaning any type of flooring a breeze.
The nitty gritty
Spring cleaning doesn’t stop there. There’s so much you can do to reset your home:
- Improve air quality and eliminate pollen and pet dander with a new air purifier and an air freshener with a scent you love.
- On a sunny day, take the opportunity to clean your windows – you’ll need glass cleaner, a bucket, a squeegee, and paper towels.
- Have a step stool or ladder on hand to access hard-to-reach places like the tops of cabinets and overhead lighting.
- Replace broken light bulbs and check the batteries in your smoke detectors.
- Use drain cleaner to clear up sink and bathtub drains.

Blu-ray will win in 4 years – FRTK
Analysts predict that 2012 will be decisive for the Blu-ray format: Blu-ray discs will surpass DVD in terms of sales for the first time. The market for Blu-ray discs will grow fantastically over this period – 36.5 times, and by 2012 will be $ 9.5 billion. Despite some pessimistic forecasts in the past, the future of Blu-ray is becoming increasingly clear. Blu-ray disc sales are projected to be $248 million in 2008, nearly 4.5 times higher than in 2007. The Blu-ray market will reach $451 million in 2010.
According to experts, the next generation Blu-ray format will take several years to replace the previous generation DVD standard, which was introduced 10 years ago. 2012 will be a pivotal year for Blu-ray as Blu-ray sales surpass DVD sales for the first time, according to the Entertainment Merchants Association (EMA).
According to the association, in 2007 US residents spent $15.9 billion buying movies on any media, half of which was spent on DVDs. In 2007, 9 were soldmillion high-definition discs (including HD DVD), which brought in revenue of $260 million Analysts predict that in 2012, Blu-ray disc sales will surpass DVD sales for the first time, and revenue from their sales will increase by 36.5 times to $9.5 billion
The rapid spread of Blu-ray will be due to the increase in the number of films released in this format, the spread of the Sony PlayStation 3 game console, which has a built-in Blu-ray drive, and the decrease in the retail price of Blu-ray players , which over time will drop to a mark comparable to the price of DVD players, experts say.
As a reminder, Blu-ray is seen as a successor to the popular DVD that appeared in 1997. The main difference between DVD and Blu-ray lies in the capacity. If a double-layer single-sided DVD can hold 8.5 GB of data, then Blu-ray can hold 50 GB. With a capacity of 8.5 GB, DVD allowed recording a full-length movie with a resolution of 0.35 MP. The higher capacity of Blu-ray allows movies to be recorded at a much higher quality, as movies are initially shot at a much higher resolution and then compressed to disc size.
Analysts are divided on the future of Blu-ray, however. While some predicted a cloudless future, others doubted the future of the format, citing the fact that the Internet would develop in parallel with the development of Blu-ray, and, accordingly, services like “video on demand”. At the same time, the question of who will win remains open. Over time, doubts about the cloudless future of Blu-ray are becoming less and less. Vendors confirm this. Thus, in an interview with CNews, Maria Csilics from Verbatim’s European office (EUMEA region) cited SCCG data showing the development dynamics of the Blu-ray market until 2010.
