Wireless USB Keyboard with Data Encryption

Wireless keyboards are a dime-a-dozen and sometimes the low-end just wont do. Wireless Computing turned their back on standard wireless keyboards and produced a high-end, commercial grade wireless keyboard that also carries 2-way data encryption technology for secure communication.

Albeit not a common need of the average computer user, USB input devices like this make it possible for retail and commercial organizations to do business without sacrificing security. The RF-250 encrypted wireless keyboard can distance itself about 100 feet from the USB dongle and include a detachable wrist rest and [touch] mouse pad. Continue Reading

The Pink Samsung 8mm Slim Mouse

Aving News gave some visual news about the new Samsung 8mm ultra-slim mouse. Although it’s no MoGo Mouse that slips into your PCMCIA slot, it is another great product for the minimalist. The Samsung USB slim mouse is going on sale in Korea next month – not sure if it will ever hit the states.  Specs include a USB connection, wheel that scrolls horizontally and five buttons.   Without seeing any buttons there must be a click feature on the wheel, and if there is – I’ll be the first to tell Samsung it’s a poor design.  But kudos for being slim.

The MobileLite 9-in-1 card reader is Kingston Technology’s version of hatch back – reminds me more of a beetle.

Four New Must Have Geek Items from IOGear

IOGear is like a rising tide when it comes to cranking out USB products for Geek consumption. It just never stops coming. From the long list of new IOGear products, here are the four most needed geek items you must have. 1) The IOGear wireless laser mouse with germaphobe coating. I mention this because not only having a wireless mouse is a must-have, but raising the geekness level to the antibacterial state is definitely cool.

2) Show me one Geek who wouldn’t like to have another monitor. And since a primary intrinsic value of geekness is saving space, working from a laptop is very standard, thus limiting the options for endless monitor configurations. The IOGear USB VGA video card adaptor is definitely a must-have for the monitor lacking. Continue Reading

Review: MoGo Bluetooth Notebook Mouse

Just the other day, Martin of Digital Reviews Network sent me a product review of the MoGo Bluetooth mouse from Newton Peripherals. I report on the Mogo Mouse earlier and commented on the slim design and handy storage area, in the PCMCIA slot. Martin’s review proves this point and a whole lot more. The primary goal of the review was to find out if the MoGo mouse really performed as a functional device, despite the small size and slim design.

However, Digital Reviews was very surprised to find it’s an elegant design which is very useful.
“one quick flick and the (hind) legs spring out from underneath making the MoGo mouse poised and more comfortable to use! With that “kickstand” it is eminently “holdable and usable” but not as comfortable of course as a normally proportioned rodent.”
Martin continues; here is another beauty: Continue Reading

USB KVM Extender Goes the Distance via CAT5
