Logitech has been quiet for the last several months and all the sudden over the last few weeks the company has whipped out a bunch of new gear. The latest new offering from Logitech is the Logitech Wireless Combo MK520 that includes a mouse and a keyboard.
Cutting as many cords as you can from your life, obviously one of the things you need to detach from the "main unit" is your mouse, so getting your hands on a wireless mouse has to be one of the first steps in the process. (And it's certainly a process.) That's why Canon's new wireless mouse has to sit on your radar. You don't want to have to deal with that regular numbpad, do you? No, of course not. So why not combine your wireless mouse and number keys? Genius, right?
Details on Microsoft's Arc Touch Mouse continue to dribble out, with the peripheral now showing up with an official MRSP on a reseller price list. According to that list, the Arc Touch Mouse will be priced at $69.95 - unsurprisingly falling into line with Apple's multitouch peripherals, the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad. Meanwhile, there's also talk of when we can expect to see the Arc Touch Mouse arrive.
The Razer Lachesis mouse was first unveiled long ago and it was one of the better gaming mice to hit the market me thinks. I had one and spent many an hour playing games with it. Razer has unveiled an updated Lachesis gaming mouse this week.
When it comes to the mouse, there's basically one design that we all have to get used to. Conform to, if you will. Sure, there's been plenty of variations out there, with some that include more buttons, and still others that have no buttons at all (at least, not visible ones). But, at least to the best of our knowledge, we can't remember the last time we saw a mouse that actually looked like a hand. More specifically, a mouse that fit into your hand, like a one-side glove, and conformed to you, and not the other way around.
About this time last month, I mentioned that Razer had a very cool Tron Legacy gaming keyboard that it was showing off. At the time the thing surfaced we really didn’t know when the keyboard and other Tron gaming peripherals would be coming to market for geeks to buy.
A new product listing for a Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse (product code RVF-00003, with an MRSP of around $70) has prompted speculation that the company are preparing their own rival to Apple's Magic Mouse. istartedsomething spotted the scant details online, together with an arctouchmouse.com placeholder, and drew some tentative connections between the presumed new peripheral and the prototype multitouch mouse Microsoft demonstrated as part of their Mouse 2.0 research last year.
As a child of the 80, you can bet I watched Tron enough times to wear out the old VHS. I love that movie and blew more than a few weeks' allowance playing the arcade game at the corner gas station. With the new Tron flick set to launch soon there are all manner of new toys and other items coming to market to rekindle those childhood memories.
Yes, there are people out there that play video games for fun, and still there are others that play for money. Lots of money, actually. It's a pretty lucrative business decision, if you've got the chops to cut it against the cut-throat adversaries out there. Luckily enough, there are companies like Gigabyte out there who care enough to produce peripherals for the gaming elite, and that's why the Gigabyte M8000X is so special: it's got features to make any professional gamer out there a happy camper.
