OK, gamers, what are your thoughts on that Xbox One? If you've seen the hardware, you already know it looks pretty huge, which has a lot of fans scratching their heads. Of course, we have yet to get a close look at Sony's upcoming PlayStation 4, but judging from a teaser video released this week, we may not have long to wait -- although it seems many game fans may choose to sit out this generation in favor of mobile devices like the iPad. Are you one of them?
While Logitech may be looking to unload its Harmony line of remote control products, that hasn't stopped them from introducing its latest product, which puts a smartphone in control of your home theater setup.
Logitech makes one of the better iPad keyboard covers around, but what if you prefer to protect the back of your tablet as well? The accessory maker answers the call yet again with its latest Keyboard Folio product.
Using a Bluetooth keyboard with more than one device can be a royal pain. If both devices are on, you sometimes have to tell one to forget the keyboard exists, so it’ll be available for the other. Logitech’s Easy-Switch feature kills this problem. You can pair the K810 with three devices (say, a Mac, an iPad, and your Apple TV), then just hit a button to switch between them.
Your TV is probably augmented by an ever-growing collection of boxes that plug into it — and you have a remote for every one. Remembering what setting everything has to be on can be frustrating. Enter Harmony Touch. Tell it which devices you have, and assign them to Activities, such as “Watch a Blu-ray.” Tapping an activity switches the relevant gear on and selects the correct channels.
Logitech is a brand well known to many Mac and iOS users for their frequently awesome accessories, but all isn't quite wine and roses following the company's quarterly results, with big changes coming in 2013.
Unlike the strictly viewing-only Logitech Alert apps for iOS and Android, the new Logitech Alert Commander for Mac offers complete control over up to six indoor or outdoor Logitech Alert cameras, including digital pan, tilt, and zoom, and digital DVR recording and playback. We tested the software with the Logitech Alert 750e Outdoor Master System, a weatherproof, night-vision-capable single security camera with HD video capture and motion-triggered alerts. (The indoor model is $50 less, while add-on cameras start at $229.99.)
Small Bluetooth speakers don’t care if your device has Lightning or 30-pin, or even if it’s a Mac or an Android phone. You can stream music from any Bluetooth device, and the audio-in lets you connect anything with a headphone jack. You won’t be blowing anyone’s hairpiece off with the sound, but they’re portable enough for travel.
At first glance, the Logitech UE Boombox looks a bit like something Judy Jetson would carry to a beach party on an asteroid. It’s all smooth curves and brushed aluminum, evoking the Mac Pro’s cheese-grater aesthetic, as well as mid-20th-century design.
