You've heard of corded USB mice, and you've heard of Bluetooth mice. But a Wi-Fi mouse? Could it be? HP's calling this device the industry's first Wi-Fi mouse, using Link-5 technology to pipe in mouse commands over a standard Wi-Fi connection. No dongles, no nubs, and no Bluetooth module required. Also, the battery is expected to last an astonishing nine months, and there are five customizable buttons that allow users to create shortcuts for common actions such as cut, paste, undo and redo. You'll get a 4-way tilt-scroll wheel, 30 feet of range and a sculpted form with rubber sides to ensure a... Read more...
It's not quite as sophisticated or complex as some of the liquid cooling options we've seen lately, but there's still a monster market out there for standard case fans. NZXT knows a thing or two about the hardcore gaming PC sect, and they're introducing this week a new FS-200 LED fan lineup to provide powerful gusts with no noise. And in order to make modders happy, these are available with green, blue or red LED lighting. Each FS-200 Silent LED Fan contains their own controller, but also comes packaged with a splitter allowing the Phantom’s LED switch to support two fans simultaneously.... Read more...
Keyboards have been around a long, long time. And come to think of it, so have Bluetooth keyboards and flexible keyboards. But that said, we haven't seen a good option combining both of those in quite some time, and that's where Scosche comes in. The accessory maker has just revealed their new freeKEY, a flexible / wireless keyboard that's designed specifically to travel well and use with the iPad 2 or any other BT-enabled tablet. It's a flexible membrane of a keyboard, complete with a waterproof exterior and support for Windows, Mac OS X, Android and iOS. There's an expected range of 30 feet,... Read more...
Are you ready to take your game to the next level? The NEXT LEVEL? What about the level after that? If so, you're ready for the Razer Talon, a high-precision biomechanical exoskeleton, build specifically for the gamer willing to risk life and limb to come out on top in the deathmatch. It's a world's first, of course, and it's redefining the speed of gaming. Average gamers can accomplish 100 actions-per-minute, while hardcore gamers can reach around 300 APM. But with the Razer Talon, you can easily see that soar to 3000. Easily. You'll be a weapon of destruction by yourself. "The Razer Talon will... Read more...
A keyboard is a keyboard, right? Not at all. We tend to favor mechanical keyboards for gaming, backlit keyboards on our notebooks, and keyboards with integrated trackpads for use with our HTPC setups. IOGEAR has a long history of providing keyboards for that last application, and they're keeping the trend alive in the new year. The company has just launched a new keyboard, the Multi-Link Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad (GKM611B) for wireless management of up to six Bluetooth enabled devices. Yep, a Bluetooth keyboard, optimized for HTPC use. The idea here is that the keyboard can connect to up... Read more...
FM transmitters have been around nearly as long as the iPod itself; for awhile, it was the primary way to transfer audio from a media player into a car stereo. But now, many head units have aux inputs, and a bunch also have Bluetooth capabilities. But what if your car still doesn't? There's an app (and a device) for that. New Potato Technologies, a start-up from North Carolina, has just released their TuneLink Auto. It's a unique Bluetooth-to-FM transmitter, but it requires an iOS app to control it. That keeps the cigarette adapter more compact, giving users control over the FM station right on... Read more...
Take a look at this USB dongle. Seen it before? You probably have, but from another company and for another purpose. Logitech's Unifying USB receiver looks a lot like this little guy, and it's possible that they actually use the same enclosure. But Logitech's unit is there to connect wireless peripherals to a PC. This one connects whatever PC that it's in to a Wi-Fi network. It's TRENDnet's latest peripheral, and they're calling it the world's smallest Wireless N USB adapter. And while we have seen quite a few Wi-Fi adapters over the years, we can't recall a single one any smaller than this. The... Read more...
It's a battle that will probably never end: wired vs. wireless mice. Some gamers swear by wired mice, claiming that they're more accurate and that they won't just die on your mid-game if your batteries run out. Some say that the flexibility of a wireless mouse trumps even that, and that they'd rather never worry about a cord slowing down their movements. We obviously see the pros and cons of both input methods, and Razer has been supporting both camps for years. The company's newest product is actually an accessory designed to make life easier for those who swear by wired mice. It's a Mouse Bungee,... Read more...
Lenovo is known for a few things. Namely, the ThinkPad, the IdeaPad and the ThinkCentre lines of computers. Lenovo notebooks in particular are used heavily in businesses, as their rugged frames and iconic tracking point. But here's something you probably don't think about: the power adapter that ships with Lenovo's ThinkPad line. It's just a standard, black power adapter. Nothing too special about it. But this new Power Hub is something special. And it's something that we wish all power adapters came with, particularly ultraportable machines that only have one or two USB ports. The Power Hub doesn't... Read more...
It's that time again. The time of year where students and parents frantically hit e-tailers with overnight shipping deals in order to get that all-important back-to-school technology into a dorm room or backpack before classes begins. It's back-to-school season, and whether you've started classes recently or are awaiting (dreading?) that first 8AM lecture, there may be a few bits of techno-shopping that need to be taken care of before you can be on you're on your way to that straight-A report card. Whether you're about to begin the Fall semester of college or your senior year in high school (or... Read more...

Mice, mice, mice. It's not a pest problem, it's a back to school symptom. With students galore looking for new mice to take to class (and the dorm room), Microsoft is hoping to catch the eye of style-minded students who need a mouse that fits their mood and color patterns. The company is this week taking the wraps off of their Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 Studio line, which features six different designs that were inspired by the places that people will use them – around the house, at a coffee shop, on a park bench. Patterns Micro, Botanic and Cosmic are available exclusive to Best Buy and... Read more...
Looking for a travel mouse, anyone? With the school season in full swing, there's a good chance you'll be needing a mouse to tote around to class, and if you use your notebook as your main workhorse, you certainly don't want to rely solely on the trackpad when back at your dorm room. Genius has a new mousing device out now with a rather unique twist; there's a bundled Stick-and-Go mount that allows users to easily affix the mouse to a laptop, and the "Flying Scroll" technology allows users to whisk through web pages or documents in eight directions all through the scroll wheel. The Navigator 905BT... Read more...
Apple's iPhone has become a lot more than a phone. The original iPhone set a new bar for all smartphones to meet, and companies have been striving to live up to that ever since. In more recent history, however, mobile operating systems like WebOS and Android 2.2 have really begun to push iOS 4 in terms of providing real competition, but there's one thing Apple has that the other companies have yet to grasp: the love of the peripheral market. Without question, there are simply more iPhone, iPad and iPod accessories to choose from than on any other smartphone or handheld device. Every accessory maker... Read more...
