The free software that is included with the X500 is called HoverCam Flex. The Flex is not surprisingly built on the Adobe Air platform, and is a desktop based application that connects directly to their web services. Images can be uploaded, saved, published, shared and OCR’d with a quick drag and drop. The HoverCam Flex service also provides quick integration with other cloud services like Google OCR, Picassa, DropBox and e-Fax. The benefits of the software alone might be worth the $199 asking price of the HoverCam X500.To get the Hovercam X500 just visit Amazon and you’ll get a better price than the MSRP. Continue Reading

I would think the biggest market for such a product are large data centers where they need to access any number of servers without a full KVM installation.
â€œAside from a rack mount LCD console, which can be expensive, server administrators and technicians would typically have to use a server room â€˜crash cartâ€™, which is a cart comprised of a keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Although a typical â€˜crash cartâ€™ is somewhat mobile, it lacks the portability of our Laptop KVM Adapter, which provides identical but more convenient controlâ€.The NOTECONS01 USB 2.0 Laptop KVM Adapter offers immediate BIOS-level access to the connected computer from the laptop control point, as well as the ability to handle full configuration of the attached PC, server, or other headless machines such as ATMs, kiosks and VLTs.
But the portable USB KVM station doesn’t come cheap, the MSRP starts at $470. Thanks Andrea! Continue Reading

I would think this be a perfect scale for the small office or front office secretary for quick checking of letters and small packages.Â Some of those larger scales take up quite a bit of space. The USB digital scale mouse is available for $59 and a higher weight capacity unit for $69.
