MY BEST TECH: Billy Tucker

Billy Tucker was the former head of group buying site Cudo, but eventually left and started his own company, 57 Signals.

Tucker needs to travel often for his business, which can be a problem when trying to stay productive. But Tucker’s favourite piece of tech keeps him plugged in wherever he goes.

“I love my Windows Surface. I had always been torn when travelling between whether I should take my iPad or a laptop, and I pretty much always took my laptop because there was no decent keyboard for the iPad.”

“The iPad did a good job with email and core applications, but now with the Surface I’ve got a proper keyboard and a full copy of Office. I can use spreadsheets and everything else quite happily. I never take a laptop anywhere anymore.”
