Not all computer mice take aim at hardcore gamers. Case in point is Logitech's new MX Anywhere 2, a wireless mobile mouse with a premium aesthetic that would look right at home in a lawyer's office or other professional setting. That's fitting, as it's intended for productivity chores as opposed to fragging your friends or going on virtual quests.In place of a million buttons is a compact design with a rubber surface. It uses what Logitech calls an advanced Darkfield laser sensor that can track on any surface, include glass tables, shiny laminate tops, and other high gloss areas. Digging into the... Read more...
We’ve seen some pretty funky designs for PCs over the years, with the most recent being Intel’s Compute Stick that manages to cram quad-core Atom power into a device the size of a Roku Streaming Stick or Fire TV Stick. Now we’re seeing a new development in the PC miniaturization game with a concept that manages to cram a fully functional PC into a mouse. The Mouse-Box is currently only in the prototype stage, but includes a 1.4GHz quad-core ARM processor, 128GB of flash storage, 802.11n, an accelerometer and a gyroscope. It also includes micro HDMI (for connecting it to an external display) and... Read more...
Over the years, we've seen numerous examples of how peripheral vendors have tried to remain competitive, and perhaps not surprisingly, many of the technologies introduced have revolved around making us better gamers. The way the promises are delivered to us, in fact, would make you think that there's only one thing stopping you from becoming a pro-gamer, and of course, it's probably that newfangled feature that the respective company is talking about. I think it's safe to say, though, that most of us have accepted the fact that we're never going to be a pro-gamer. But that doesn't mean... Read more...
Being the hardcore enthusiasts that we are, it's easy to forget that not everyone lives on the cutting edge of technology or otherwise wants or needs high end components and peripherals designed for power users. So for those of who wouldn't dream of owning a mouse decked out with more buttons than you have fingers, meet Logitech's latest rodent, the M320. This little guy is a wireless mouse designed for comfort by way of its curved shape to "guide your hand to a natural position." It also sports an asymmetrical form, making it an ambidextrous rodent for both left- and right-handed users. "With... Read more...

If your any kind of a computing enthusiast, you're quite familiar with EVGA, even if you haven't bought and of their hardware.

Here is some odd-ball news for your Friday: Microsoft just released a mouse that sports an image of Master Chief. It’s not surprising to see Microsoft promoting its beloved Halo protagonist, but it is weird to see the Chief on an ordinary mouse, given how rarely it has made PC appearances. Whatever Microsoft’s reasons, the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Halo Limited Edition: The Master Chief is up for pre-order now on through GameStop, and we’re not going to be the ones to tell the Chief his mouse is under-equipped. The $29.95 Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 is a good all-around... Read more...

We love a good gaming mouse around here, and Logitech unveiled a doozy with the G502 Proteus Core, which is designed to let you tune the mouse to your preferred weight, balance, tracking speed, and more--as well as a given gaming surface “unique physical and reflective characteristics”.

It sports a Delta Zero sensor with a DPI range of 200-12,000. The Logitech Proteus Core Gaming Mouse will be available this month for $79.99... Read more...
Not too long after SteelSeries released its original Sensei in 2011, I realized that it was a mouse I could spend the rest of my life with. A bit later, I adopted a [RAW] variant for my second PC. Overall, I consider both of them to be stellar mice - some of the best ever made. Of course though, no product is perfect, and one big complaint I've always had is that the software could be better (mostly regarding macros), and I really wanted to see a wireless version. I am not so sure about the former, but the latter is happening, and it's happening soon. SteelSeries is promising some big things with... Read more...
Gamers need not fret, your interests are being represented at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Everything from high resolution monitors to peripherals such as headsets and mice.

The TORQ X10 sports a real carbon fiber surface and the "highest quality" Omron switches with a lifespan of over 20 million clicks, EVGA says. It also features a sensitive 8200 DPI sensor with a 1000Hz polling rate, adjustable weight system, no less than 9 programmable buttons, and... Read more...
If you've held off on updating your operating system to Windows 8.1 (free for Windows 8 users) because of reports of mouse problems following the upgrade (specifically, issues with lag, stutter, and freezing), you'll be happy to know that Microsoft has issued a fix, just as the Redmond company promised it would. Following a series of complaints on the Internet, Microsoft acknowledged last week that the Windows 8.1 update could bork (see definition No.1) your mouse in certain games and situations. The culprit, as it turns out, is related to changes Windows 8.1 makes to mouse input processing for... Read more...
Microsoft has several valid reasons why you should upgrade to Windows 8.1, which is free if you already own Windows 8. However, there's a known issue that might give some gamers pause before clicking through in the Windows Store. There have been complaints of mouse problems after applying the Windows 8.1 update, most of which have been related to lag in video games, though Microsoft confirmed there are other potential quirks. Acknowledging the problem is one thing, but Microsoft says it's also actively investigating the issues and working on a patch. "First off, we want to thank our gaming community... Read more...
The technology landscape has shifted dramatically, even in the past decade. Innovation seems to be impacting nearly every corner of the space, yet there are still a couple of products that have not changed much over the years. Toasters, USB cords, and mice to name a few. The OysterMouse hopes to change that, shipping in two sizes and claiming to be a true ambidextrous device. It's available in wired and wireless forms, and has the ability to be positioned from 20 degrees to 60 degrees. While plenty of ergonomic mice exist, there's something to be said about a design that's meant to be cradled within... Read more...
