There's a mouse for every occasion. Whether you're a gamer, a causal Mac user, always on the go, or need a mouse with bells and whistles, there's something out there for you. Here are give greating performers worth your consideration, no matter the need.
Software is the big news these days. Whether it's Apple's long-awaited incredibly popular Mountain Lion or it's apps that work with it or fixes for it. Whatever the case, we love ourselves some software, but there were other stories of interest this week, just take a look and see.
Regardless of what kind of mobile device or computer you own, Skype is pretty much available for your video calling needs. But what about the living room? Logitech answers the call with a new video calling camera for your HDTV.
In the midst of all this Mountain Lion madness, we thought it'd be cool if we indulged our materialistic tendencies and showed off some gadgets we've set our sights on lately. Some of the items listed have already been reviewed and some are slated for the future, but for now just consider it eye candy! And hey, you can chime in with your own in the comments!
This week was the case of lots of cases. In fact, that seemed to be where all the good cost cutting action was. Sure, there were tons of App Store deals over the holiday, but this isn't our app price drop, this is solid merchandise you can hold in your hand. And what's better to hold in your hand than a slick case protecting your devices? Let's have a look at some of these.
Call me crazy, but I’ve never been a big fan of the Apple mice. I’m a quick mover on the computer, constantly multitasking and clicking between different windows and Spaces, and even the wired Apple Mouse could never keep up with me. Logitech’s Anywhere MX is the only mouse that has been able to offer what I need, so I’m curious to see if the company’s two new offerings are just as effective.
iPod accessories have taken a turn for the wireless since the introduction of the iPad, especially since it’s a bit bulky to prop up on a clock radio or speaker dock. The tide has shifted toward AirPlay or Bluetooth-enabled speakers that work with a wider range of smartphones, media players, and tablets. Logitech cuts the cord almost entirely with its $149.99 Logitech Wireless Boombox.
My daughter wants me to download Logitech Vid HD so that we can video chat with each other. She’s on a PC, and I’m on a Mac running 10.6.8. Will I have trouble with this program because I’m connecting to a PC? Or can I just use my iChat or Gmail account?
Since the iPad debuted a couple of years ago, people have been trying to turn it into a low-cost, lightweight replacement laptop. Adding a Bluetooth keyboard is a good start, of course, but then you’re stuck lugging around two separate items. That’s hardly an argument for being able to simplify your life with an iPad. Or is it? Logitech’s Fold-Up Keyboard turns your iPad into a Transformer, letting you use it tablet-style, or with a full-size keyboard when you need a productivity boost.
Always wondered if those virtual keyboards really work as advertised? On this week's Mac|Life Show, we pitted the Cellulon Magic Cube against the Logitech Solar-powered Keyboard to see if those laser keyboards are really all that they're cracked up to be.
