You’ve opened the box, plugged it in, and turned it on — now what? We’ve got the answers. Look below to see some of the best stuff for your new stuff, the apps that will get you fully up and running with your new gadget in no time.

It Doesn’t Pay For Your Employees to be Workaholics When it comes to the 24/7 working culture in the U.S., employees may be their own worst enemy according to Leslie A. Perlow, the Konosuke Matsushita professor of leadership at Harvard Business School. Perlow conducted some research involving a team of high-powered, workaholic consultants to see if they could disconnect after working hours and also discover the results of their decisions.

The key to her research was committing as a team. With the joint effort to solidify time off, the consultants communicated more, supported one another, and held each other accountable for connecting after working hours.
