The Estilo GT mouse is extremely cool looking and the ideal gadget gift for that Porsche loving greek friend.  The Bluetooth dongle sits in the rear trunk of the wireless mouse with left and right clickers along with scroll mouse on the hood.

I guess you could make the argument that some fellow “over seas” chopped up the Estilo design and did the world a disfavor by creating a Porsche mouse, but if that’s you…get a life…it’s a cool looking mouse. The Estilo GT Bluetooth Mouse is $38 and $55 with tiny USB Bluetooth V2.0+EDR adapter (see I knew we’d fit in USB somewhere) Continue Reading

Kensington ShareCentral – It’s a USB Hub Two Computers Use

sharecentralIt’s a USB hub two computers use.” Sounds off doesn’t it? It’s not. What the Kensington ShareCentral does is provide a single USB box you can plug your USB devices into so they maybe shared between two computers. This is ideal for printers or scanners that need to be shared between computers (small office). Or ideal for placing a USB hard drive on a small network for automated backup. Or simply a KVM switch to centralize your keyboard, video monitor and mouse between two PCs. Actually I could use that now between my “work” computer with dual monitors to my “test” PC which could use dual monitors. I spotted the ShareCentral while over at GizmosForGeeks earlier today. They had a good point:
Chances are that if you’re reading this blog, you’ve probably got multiple computers in your household, but on the other hand, you’ve probably decided against cluttering your home with multiple printers, external hard drives and the like. But it can be such a pain to keep swapping those devices amongst your various computers. Enter the Kensington ShareCentral USB sharing device.
If this bit of news peaked your interested you can check out the latest price on the Kensington ShareCentral at Amazon.

The Ugliest USB Keyboard

I am all for spicing up the computer world with cool designs, colors and shapes, but sometimes even the most valiant effort fails.  Case in point: The Nishi-Ki keyboard is the ugliest keyboard you will ever see, despite it’s attempt to be a beautiful piece of artwork. At just a glance, or even long stare, you can’t guess what’s printed on the keyboard.  Just ugliness.

Apparently there are unique and customized butterfly and flowers painted on to each key.  Wow – that takes time, and to justify those wasted hours Nishi-Ki is charging about $155 per keyboard. Source:  Slippery Brick. Continue Reading

The Fuggly Waterproof Mouse

Not the best looking USB mouse, but it does hold one unique characteristic…it’s waterproof.  Yep, you can now browse the web, underwater, safe and secure.  Putting some traditional yellow to signify the waterproof feature would help the look, but not by much.
