That’s one more cut cord. Logitech announced its new Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam today, which it’s targeting at people who want to stream video live or need to place the Broadcaster in a location that a corded webcam can’t reach. The Broadcaster supports Ustream live streaming and can do some neat tricks with your MacBook and iMovie. The catch? Broadcaster is only compatible with Macs at the moment. The Broadcaster offers HD 720p video capture and has 3x digital zoom. It also supports digital pan & tilt. An external mic jack gives you the option to use your own if you don’t... Read more...
Logitech expanded its keyboard lineup with the addition of the new Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810. This new keyboard is compatible with Windows, iOS and Android devices and features a layout designed for Windows 8. As you should expect from its name, this keyboard uses Bluetooth to connect to up to three of your favorite devices simultaneously. The K810 features a thin design along with a brushed aluminum finish. The laser-etched backlit keys feature auto-adjusting illumination to ensure they're easy to read both day and night. The K810 automatically turns on the backlighting when... Read more...
Logitech announced the latest addition to its G-Series line in the form of the new Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard.

Logitech realizes rapid command entry is important to gamers so the G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard features an actuation force of 45g and distance of 4 mm. To reduce noise, each keycap has a built-in dampening ring underneath. To ensure the keyboard can withstand rigorous use, the keyboard has been tested to ensure a durability of at least a 50 million keystrokes. The... Read more...
Logitech has dedicated itself to developing one remote to rule them all, as it were, and today the company announced its latest effort, the Logitech Harmony Remote. The device’s premiere feature is the touchscreen nesting in the middle of the remote. Using the bright, 2.4-inch screen, you can add and scroll through up to 50 saved favorite channels (with customizable icons), bring up a number pad, set and sort various activities, and more. Logitech also shrunk the whole unit a bit from the last generation, making it a bit more ergonomical and leaving just the button people use the most. For... Read more...
The iPad may not be a full-fledged computer, but leave it to Logitech to try and bring it closer to being one. The company has just introduced the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for the iPad. It's a clip-on unit that attaches to the side of one's iPad, and in addition to adding a full QWERTY keyboard, it also includes a battery that could last for up to half a year. Half a year! That's based on using it for two hours a day, so heavier users will obviously need to charge up more often. It's available now for pre-order at $100, but if you're waiting to see if an iPad Mini hits before the end of the year,... Read more...
If you've ever spilled your drink on your keyboard, you know what a pain it can be to try to clean things up and make sure the keyboard doesn't get sticky (that is, assuming the keyboard survives the spill). Logitech's newest keyboard is ready for mishaps such as this. The new Washable Keyboard K310 is designed to withstand everything from a light dusting to a rinse in the kitchen sink. With the exception of the USB cable, the keyboard can be submerged in up to 11 inches of water. The keyboard has drainage holes in the back to help it dry. The Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 will cost $39.99. Logitech... Read more...

Job cuts in the tech industry has become an all too common theme in the past couple of years, and the latest round of redundancy reductions is set to take place at Logitech. The peripheral maker announced plans to restructure its operations and simplify its organization to "better align costs with its current business to and free up resources to pursue its growth opportunities," and part of the process will entail handing out 450 pink slips. "As we announced in April, this organizational streamlining, along with our strategy to deliver fewer but more compelling products, should position Logitech... Read more...
As the saying goes, you learn something new every day. Today, that tasty morsel of knowledge is the fact that according to the Trade Agreements Act of 1979 (aka the “TAA”), federal agencies in the U.S. are required to purchase certain products that are made only in the good old U.S. of A. (or in other designated countries). Thus, products the government buys must be TAA-compliant, which sounds like kind of a headache for federal IT buyers. Apparently, those “designated countries” include Taiwan, where Logitech is manufacturing peripherals that pass TAA muster. (We know,... Read more...
Logitech introduced a new mouse that takes some notes from the way we navigate on smartphones and tablets. The new Touch Mouse M600 is a gesture-based mouse that lets you scroll, swipe, and surf wherever your fingertips rest on the mouse. The mouse doesn't care which hand you use, and the click areas can be reassigned using the Logitech SetPoint software.  Like some of Logitech's other popular devices today, the Touch Mouse M600 uses the Logitech Unifying receiver which can connect up to six compatible devices through one USB port. The Touch Mouse M600 is expected to be available sometime... Read more...
The video chatting and collaboration aspects of unified communications (UC) are a big deal in the enterprise as companies routinely work with far-flung companies and employ remote workers in droves; for that matter, large companies rely on it as employees working in separate buildings or on different floors need to collaborate. Logitech is looking to make the video experience better to use and also easier to deploy with new webcam technology, full HD 1080p video at 30fps (thanks to a collaboration with Skype). The new technology keeps the H.264 video encoding in the camera itself, thus avoiding... Read more...
As CES draws a day closer, Logitech has let fly with news about a couple of new peripherals it will be showing off in Vegas, one a webcam and the other a mouse. The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 has some impressive features, but its primary claim to fame is its capability to conduct video calls in 1080p. The 1080p HD only works with Skype--Skype 5.7 Beta for Windows, to be precise--but Windows Live Messenger users can enjoy 720p. Some of those other excellent features include the ability to upload HD video clips or 15MP photos directly to social networking sites, Carl Zeiss optics, a smooth 20-step... Read more...
Cloud storage is all the rage these days, and Logitech's not missing the boat. The company has just announced the Alert Video Security System, which is gaining Dropbox support. A year or so ago, the Logitech Alert HD digital video security system was launched to help you watch over the people and places you care about the most. With Dropbox – in addition to existing Logitech Alert on-camera video storage and PC video backup – you now have an additional storage option that gives you even more piece of mind. Whether at home or on the road, Dropbox's automatic backup and password protection... Read more...
