Logitech Prepares "Wave" Keyboard

By: Array

Designed specifically with Windows Vista in mind, Logitech are preparing a new wireless keyboard/mouse combo dubbed the "Cordless Desktop Wave". This keyboard will sport a number of dedicated buttons which are specific to Vista.

 

TGDaily have posted up an early pic of the keyboard along with plenty of info.

 



After the recent FCC approval for a new wireless keyboard/mouse combination called "Cordless Desktop Wave", Logitech is now preparing Windows Vista keyboard. The new device will be Logitech's first keyboard tailored for use with Microsoft's new Windows Vista operating system. Compared to the currently available "Cordless Desktop Comfort laser" keyboard, there are now a few dedicated buttons that directly correspond to Vista features. There are four additional buttons that allow access to Vista Gadgets, the Photo Gallery, the Windows Media Player and the Media Center. The Wave also offers keys for Vista's Flip3D feature and a function to put the PC into sleep mode. The enclosed mouse also supports Flip3D by clicking and the scroll wheel. Pricing has not been announced but it should remain around $100.

By: Array

Many of you are very fussy about the quality of your mouse no doubt, especially if you're an avid FPS gamer. But when it comes to raw responsiveness, rather then going by the specs or getting a feel for a few yourself, how'd you like to be able to rely on some very accurate figures to distinguish the performance characteristics of all the best mice on the market at the moment? These exist thanks to a very cool dedicated mouse benchmarking method designed soley for an indepth roundup over at ESReality today.

 


With the launch of the world's first independent benchmarking system for mice, buying a desktop rodent will no longer involve guesswork and luck. Sujoy Roy has been analysing hardcore data and investigating the real world at a fundamental level since entering Cambridge University in 1994. His other passion in life is gaming, so the creation of the MouseScore benchmark makes perfect sense!

 

If you are serious about fragging the world to death, then you can't afford NOT to read this article and be the first gamer in your team to know the absolute truth in the battle between the massed ranks of the multinational mouse manufacturers.

 

If you want to read all the technical detail start at Page 1. If you just want the results go straight to Page 21 to see how the different mice compare.

Logitech updates diNovo keyboard

By: Array

Logitech have just updated their top of the line diNovo keyboard with the new diNovo Edge. This one gets a face list with several new bang whizz features and other tid bits.

 

The official press release can be found here, and there's more coverage on it over at The Inquirer.

 


I HAD ALWAYS liked the look of the Logitech diNovo keyboard, but I stuck to the tried and true Elite and never bought one. Now Logitech is replacing it with the diNovo Edge, new look, new features and new things.

 

The new look is the most obvious, and three things are immediately apparent. First, it looks really beautiful. It is laser cut from a single piece of black plexiglass and put into an aluminium surround, hard to beat that material choice. The indicators are all flush and backlit orange or green.

The Most Futuristic Keyboard Yet? - Microsoft "Vista" Keyboard Announced

By: Array

Today Microsoft lifted the curtain on a rather unique looking bluetooth enabled keyboard designed to make your Windows Vista experience that bit more pleasurable.

 

This thing is pretty out there with its feature-set, but as to whether or not it holds up to its name as the "Ultimate" keyboard wont be found out for a while yet; according to the DailyTech it'll probably start popping up in stores around the same time as Vista hits town.

 


The new Bluetooth-based wireless keyboard is aimed at making your Windows Vista experience even more pleasurable with such features as a backlit keyboard with ambient light sensor and proximity sensing to power down the lighting when you leave the room. Even more impressive is the included pad that charges your mouse when not in use. It's probably using some kind of induction charging system similar to what's used in A4Tech's BatteryFree Mouse. The ergonomic keyboard also features a host of media buttons and controls to take advantage of Vista's multimedia capabilities and has a 30 foot range. But for all its features, the new keyboard ditches the traditional numpad that most have grown accustomed to.
