Just about everything that I want to share across my network connects via USB. Generally, if I want to share my printer or an external HDD I just connect it to my PC and then allow other computers to share it via my computer. That never seems to work for too long though because every other time someone tries to print they get error messages and you have to remember to leave the computer the devices are physically connected to on at all times.
I bet most of us have more than one gadget that can benefit from a keyboard at some point. Things like your smartphone, computer, tablet, netbook, and lots more. The catch is that generally, you need a keyboard for each one of those devices or at least you have to sync a Bluetooth keyboard to each device each time you want to use it. IOGEAR has a new Multi-Link Bluetooth Mini Keyboard GKB601B that promises to be able to link with six different devices.
IOGEAR is unveiling some new gear in Las Vegas this week and among that new gear is the Wireless 3D Media kit. The kit streams HD audio and video with 3D support up to 100 feet away and allows for connecting six different AV devices to the kit.
Iogear makes a full line of gear and peripherals for computers and notebooks. The company also has a new line of AV products that are aimed for the enthusiast looking for complete control and integration of multiple AV components.
Wireless video is one of those things that you really wouldn't think would be all that hard, but high-profile retreats such as Belkin's FlyWire are showing it isn't necessarily as easy as squirting HDTV across the open air of your living room. Everything USB have been testing out IOGear's Wireless USB AV Kit, and finding that you're not so much cutting cables as rearranging them.
Sometimes, it's the small things in life that make me happy. And simple gadgets like the one released by IOGEAR today do exactly that. The Printer Auto Sharing Switch has two ports and it works with both Macs and PCs.
I know it's not much to look at, but this is no doubt convenient. IOGEAR is claiming this switch is the first of its kind to completely recognize both PCs and Macs. You can use two computers that run on either platform with this switch. All you have to do is plug the computers into the switch and the switch into the printer. That's all there is to it.
It works with any USB printer and can detect which computer is requesting a print job automatically. That's pretty convenient, if you ask me. The switch is powered by the USB bus and requires Windows 2000 and up or Mac OS X Panther and up. You can get your hands on the IOGEAR Printer Auto Sharing Switch today for $40....
Iomega announced two new portable hard drive models in their eGo Portable line today. They are rather unique and focus on providing added security to your data. The two new models include the Encrypt and the BlackBelt.
IOGEAR has just launched their newest item, called the 16-Port USB PS/2 Combo KVM Switch, which makes it so small to medium-sized businesses can spend less money when attempting to add peripherals to their office set ups. In fact, this switch makes it so one set of monitors, mice or keyboards could be shared between up to 256 computers!
There are a ton of different USB hubs out there these days. Many pack in the ports but they often do so in a cluttered and wasteful way. With ports that are too close together and connectors that are too bulky, you always end up with at least one wasted port.
