Logitech has been busy the last month or so rolling out all manner of new products include some new gaming gear and keyboards. The company has also just announced a new wireless headset for computer users called the H760. This headset is designed for the user who makes VoIP calls from their PC and wants to make those calls with no wires.

Back when I used to work in an office, the women were always complaining that the headsets they wore that went over the head messed up their hair. If you are the sort that worries about your hair, the H760 headset uses a behind the ear style. The headset also has molded foam ear pads for comfort.

TPG joins the 1TB bandwagon

By: Steve Dougherty | More News: Networking | Posted: Aug 20, 2010 7:25 am

TPG has just revealed its intent to offer a 1 Terabyte broadband plan to new and existing customers. This is the third ISP in Australia to shift plans up to 1TB and beyond. Earlier this week iiNet announced its 1TB plan and iPrimus was quick to follow up with an even larger quota on offer of 1.11TB.

 

TweakTown image news/1/6/16500_01.jpg

 

While it may seem TPG has some stiff competition with the likes of iiNet and iPrimus, there is one particular attribute of this plan that shines brightly; price. TPG is offering its 1TB plan at just $69.99, whilst the other two ISPs are offering their 1TB+ plans at $99.95.

 

However, apparently the plan is limited in its availability at this time to both new and existing TPG customers.

$100 Unlimited plan being tested by Verizon in select markets

By: Don Lynn | More News: Mobile Devices | Posted: Aug 20, 2010 5:01 am

TweakTown image news/1/6/16496_001.jpg

 

Verizon has a pretty nice view from the top of the mountain as the top wireless carrier in the U.S., but it seems they might be hearing footsteps from the competition. Verizon has started offering their National Talk and Text plan for $70 USD in San Diego and Los Angeles, California; a $20 discount from their current offering. Throw in their $30 unlimited data, and you have an offer eerily similar to Sprint's $99 "Everything" plan.

Cheaper apps now available from BlackBerry App World with 2.0 release

By: Don Lynn | More News: Mobile Devices | Posted: Aug 20, 2010 3:46 am

RIM has always had a $2.99 USD minimum set price for apps in their App World store. This is getting ready to change with RIM's announcement that the rule has been lifted and 99 cent and $1.99 apps will now be available for developers to release in App World 2.0, which has been released from beta today and become official.

 

TweakTown image news/1/6/16495_001.jpg

 

RIM looks to be hoping to make more in volume sales instead of depending on profit margins, and this drop in price may also bring more developers to the BlackBerry scene since the idea seems to work so well on other platforms like Apple's App Store. App World 2.0 is also bringing improvements like non-PayPal credit card payments, more app browsing options, and the ability to use BlackBerry ID to move free and paid apps between devices when you upgrade your phone.
