Every day it seems there is a new gadget on the market to make our lives simpler, more convenient, and yes, faster. And even our computer use is being enhanced with gadgets to make using a computer even easier than it already is. This next one is the voice controlled mouse, and while it is still in the development stage, you may see this out sooner than you think as it is catching on quickly. It is the voice controlled mouse, and those of you that hate using the touch pad on your laptop will definitely appreciate this one. Gone will be the days when you will curse yourself for forgetting your mouse pad at home, when all you will need is the voice controlled mouse. This product is in development through a research team at the University of Washington and it is known as the voice controlled mouse or the vocal joystick.
For those of you that are carting your laptops here there and everywhere and also like to use your mouse with your notebook, you have probably found yourself frustrated with the constant finagle of wires and peripherals. Our friends at Logitech have resolved this problem for you with the V550 Nano Mouse. This mouse is a cordless laser mouse for notebooks and laptops, and has the added advantage of a Clip and Go dock that will give you one less thing to lug around. The clip and go dock will allow you to clip your wireless mouse directly to the notebook so you can literally clip, and go. This gadget is easy to remove and attach making your mouse a part of your laptop and not a separate piece. Even better, this comes with a feature called the ‘Plug and Forget Nano Receiver’ to charge your new mouse, and this is a wireless key for the mouse about the size of a nickel. It has 18 months of battery life and you can turn it off when you aren’t using it to preserve power. The mouse also utilizes laser technology that delivers smooth cursor control on any surface you use it on, as well as hyper fast scrolling and even more control with click to click mode.
What’s even cooler than the 100GB you get with Buffalo’s new Flash Drive is that it’s only the size of a business card, and weighs in at just 2 ounces. If you don’t need 100GB (or don’t have $952), consider the 64 GB priced at $665, or the 32 GB version priced at $312. Whichever space suits your needs, it doesn’t get more convenient these portable drives. This thing looks awesome.
