Logitech Pen released with classroom Chromebooks in mind

Google's Chromebooks have developed a strong foothold in the education sector. The balance of affordability, support for web apps, Android apps and Google Classroom has made a compelling value proposition for many schools. There are also an increasing number of Chromebooks that offer touchscreen support in the form of convertible laptops and 2-in-1 devices. In many cases, this also means support for styluses which typically aren't bundled with the device to help keep costs down.

Tractive cat tracker is a real-time spy into feline antics

Tractive cat tracker is a real-time spy into feline antics

For better or worse, many cat owners let their feline friends have the lay of the land -- after all, it can be very difficult to try to contain them in a backyard, even if that is the owner's intent. Cats love nothing more than being able to climb trees and scale fences. They are, in just about every way, better escape artists than dogs who are more likely to try to dig their way under a fence than try to get over it. As a result, it can be much harder to keep track of where your cat is when they've absconded for the day.

Why People Couldn’t Stand Apple’s “Hockey Puck” Mouse

Why People Couldn’t Stand Apple’s “Hockey Puck” Mouse

Given Apple's current reputation as one of the world's most sought after and admired tech brands, it's hard for many to believe the company has had more than a handful of design controversies. While some of these mistakes were products simply too ahead of their time, there were some other objectively bad designs like the first-gen Apple Pencil's Lightning charger that shouldn't have gone past the initial design phase - let alone transform into a prototype and end up in the palms of a consumer (quite literally, in this case).

NexMonitor and NexPad have a trick to turn your phone into a workhorse

Smartphones today, at least the high-end ones, are powerful enough to be our desktops. Some manufacturers like Samsung, Motorola, and Huawei have even taken that literally with their own systems for turning their smartphones into desktops. Strangely enough, these companies didn't try building a hardware and software ecosystem around these features, which could have made it easier for users to actually embrace the hybrid lifestyle and workflow. Fortunately, that also leaves the market open for other players like Nex Computer, which is announcing two new ways to be productive with your phone.

Shiftall accessories put your whole body in VR

Shiftall accessories put your whole body in VR

Shiftall is expanding its virtual reality options with four devices, including a new VR headset. The company unveiled the devices on Wednesday during CES 2022, and they're all set to arrive throughout 2022. First up on the list of new devices is Shiftall's MeganeX, an ultra-lightweight and high-resolution VR headset. The lighter weight should help with headset fatigue, which is a common issue VR users run into after extended periods of time wearing their headsets. The head-mounted display also features a foldable frame and built-in speakers. It should be easy to store, and not needing to add an external headset means you won't need to worry about extra weight being added on.
