Sure, those of us into first person shooters would love to frag our friends with a Razer Mamba or Logitech G9x, but if your gaming diet consists of Peggle with a side of Bejeweled, then there's no sense in dropping a Benjamin (or more) on a rodent. Nor will a dedicated gaming mouse level up your Microsoft Office Ribbon Hero skills (yes folks, this one actually exists - check it out here).Lucky for you, there are no shortage of wallet-friendly rodents to choose from, including three brand new entries from Microsoft's Hardware division, each of which costs less than $30. Two of the new mice -- the Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 and Wireless Mouse 2000 -- ditch their tails in favor of a Nano transreceiver,... Read more...

Microsoft asserts that it can get traction on surfaces such as granite, marble, carpet and unfinished wood,... Read more...
Microsoft may not be the first vendor you think of when looking for a new webcam, but sure enough, the company has just introduced a new one. The LifeCam VX-2000 is the newest member of the growing LifeCam family, and priced at under $30, it's apt to fit most budgets. It transmits VGA video and possesses a built-in microphone, and apparently Microsoft has arranged for this thing to work easily with any broadband-connected PC. Designed for video calling and video chatting, the webcam packs a 1.3MP sensor and auto-adjusts for low-light condition. It'll ship next month for $29.95 and will arrive with a three-year limited hardware warranty. In related news, the company is also introducing three new... Read more...
