Now that the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is in full swing, you can expect a bevy of product announcements, everything from new desktops and crazy expensive laptops on down to routers and gaming peripherals.

It has a unique auto-speed feature (available through the accompanying software) that... Read more...

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency slapped Logitech with a fine worth more than a quarter of a million dollars for claims the peripheral maker made about its cordless desktop MX3200 laser mouse and keyboard combo. Those peripherals are now defunct, but when they were being sold, Logitech touted their ability to protect users from nasty bacteria and microbes. That would have been fine and dandy, had Logitech tested its claims and then registered with the EPA. "Unverified public health claims can lead people to believe they are protected from disease-causing organisms when, in fact, they are... Read more...

Arguably, the best made keyboards available today have mechanical key switches. They are known as mechanical key switch keyboards. What makes them so desirable is that mechanical keyboards tend to be constructed of higher quality materials, they last longer, are more reliable, and most importantly, once properly acclimated to one, a mechanical key switch keyboard will make you a better typist. The vast majority of keyboards included with white box systems or sold at office supply stores are rubber dome or membrane keyboards. They are inexpensive, mass produced, relatively low quality devices that... Read more...
Tradition says that there are two primary kinds of typists: touch-typists who are familiar enough with a keyboard's layout to type without having to look at the keyboard while they type, and hunt-and-peck typists who must visually locate each key they want to hit. The vast majority of English-language keyboard users--be them touch-typists or hunt-and-peckers--type on keyboards that use the QWERTY layout. While this layout might have performed a specific function back in 1874 when it was originally patented, there is no real technical reason why this particular layout has endured, other than tradition....

Analysts at Gartner have estimated that there are already one billion computers in use worldwide right now. That's a big number, but it's the estimated rate of growth in PC ownership that jumps off the page in their report -- 12 percent a year. That means by 2014, they estimate two billion people worldwide will be able to leave bizarre comments on YouTube videos or press the autosum button on a spreadsheet. “Whereas mature markets accounted for just under-60 percent of the first billion installed PCs, we expect emerging markets to account for approximately 70 percent of the next billion installed...

Silicon Valley wants you. They'll pay you big bucks, and you'll occupy a central position in the world of the data center. But you'll have next to nothing to do with software.
