Your desk is most likely wider than it is deep. So why is your notebook deeper than it is wide? Studio Neat's Panobook is designed specifically for use on your desk, making good use of the extra space. Measuring roughly 11" by 6", it's meant to sit in front of, behind, or beside your keyboard.

This isn't a new one, but it's kind of too good to leave off the list. Your first cup of coffee is meant to kickstart your productivity at work.

The subdued, black on black mug gives you a little dose of motivation whenever you down some coffee. Now get to work.
