If you find yourself at Sea World, be sure to check out the Pets Rule show. You'll see a variety of animals perform some amazing tricks, like a cat walking a tightrope. There are ducks, dogs, and even a pig all prancing around acting like humans. But one thing we've never seen before is a mouse that can do math. Canon's latest rodent -- X Mark I Mouse Lite -- can do that, as well as perform a few other tricks.
Netbook users can scurry right along, there's nothing to see here. So can anyone interested in ergonomics, precise input devices, and gaming mice. Oh, and if you're strictly a desktop user, you can join the exit group too. At this point we should be left with notebook users who demand nothing more from their input peripheral than the ability to move a cursor around the screen. The Disk Mouse concept might be just the device you never knew you wanted.
Like Goose and Maverick, we have a serious need for speed, which is why it's getting time to think about replacing all those USB 2.0 flash drives with USB 3.0 equivalents. It makes sense, for the right price, now that you can't hardly buy a new motherboard or PC without at least one SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port on it, and according to Patriot Memory, the company's new Supersonic Xpress USB 3.0 flash drive offers "maximum performance at an affordable price."
A new mouse from Microsoft managed to sneak out of its cage and make its way to the Web, and nearly undetected too. That is, until its picture was taken. It's Microsoft unreleased Explorer Touch Mouse, not to be confused with another Microsoft rodent bearing a similar name, the Touch Mouse, a multi-touch peripheral that can discern between one-, two-, and three-finger taps.
Color us a little bit confused, but isn't the market for multi-media computer speakers dead? That's what we were led to believe when Klipsch quit coming out with new computer speaker sets and Logitech appearing content to sell its Z-5500 system until the end of time. Then all of sudden Logitech came out with a new speaker system, the Z906 (read our review here), and now Pioneer is getting in on the action with its new S-MM301 and S-MM751RU computer speaker systems.
Razer isn't new to movie tie-ins by any means, having released an assortment of Tron-themed gaming gear. Now it's Transformers' turn to tango with Razer with a range of Transformers 3 peripherals, including themed DeathAdder mice in four different colors, themed dual-sided Vespula mouse mat, and customized laptop sleeves.
Case fans typically aren't all that exciting. Some sport funky fan blades, other boast LED lights, and all of them are shrouded in plastic with screw holes to attach to your case. You have fans that are designed to push more air than a hurricane, and others built with low acoustics in mind. But what makes the new USB Rubber Vegas (U.R.Vegas) fan line from Enermax so unique is how you mount the fans and move them around.
Between tablets, all-in-one (AIO) PCs, smartphones, and even desktop monitors, computer users are going to have to learn to keep their hands clean or risk gunking up all their gear with finger grease. The latest addition to the 'touch me!' crowd is AOC's aptly named Touch Monitor (e2239FwT), a 22-inch LCD display with LED backlight, Full HD 1920x1080 resolution, and multi-touch capabilities.
In all reality, the trackball never left, it just plummeted from relevance for most users, and certainly in the mainstream. Undeterred by the market's move towards laser sensors, Kensington announced a new wireless mobile trackball along with an update to its free TrackballWorks software. The Orbit Wireless Mobile Trackball is primarily intended for laptop users and mobile professionals on the go.
