logitech-m555b

Far from a ground breaking device. Logitech announced an all new Bluetooth mouse today, the M555b.  What’s it sporting you ask?  Two scroll modes, laser tracking, a low power battery indicator LED and a smart sleep mode to conserve juice.  It takes two AAs, maxes out at 1000dpi and will launch sometime later this month for $50.

Full release after the ‘leap’

The laser sensor does not work on glass and mirrors.

go back to an ordinary scroll wheel.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
