When is the last time you gave much thought to mice? No, not the critters with beady little eyes, I'm talking about the mice you use with your desktop and laptop computers. Other than wireless, there really hasn't been that much innovation in the input device that millions of people use every day. Until now. The [...]

ECBC-Hercules-1

Backpacks are handy when traveling. They allow you to carry things on your back, leaving your hands free to pull other luggage. Better still, the TSA or security checkpoint friendly backpacks make getting through security with your laptop and other devices quick and painless (relatively speaking). With these backpacks, the laptop portion opens so that [...]

calypsocase-macbook-7

Over Christmas, I finally jumped into the MacBook scene and picked up a 13" MacBook Pro with Retina display. The first thing I thought when I bought it was, "I need to find some sort of case for this expensive laptop!" For the first few months, I carried the laptop in two hands always, and [...]

dell-xps13-100

Several weeks ago I posted the first part of this article where I talked about how I would be using a Dell XPS 13 laptop instead of my 13" MacBook Pro with retina display and 13" MacBook Air for a week. To remind folks, I only use Macs at home. There are no Windows PCs to be [...]

odin-projection-mouse

After I recovered from the cool factor, I've always wondered why people would want to use a projection keyboard with their tablet or smartphone.  Sure, the projected keyboard is likely bigger than the on-screen keyboard, but it still suffers from the same problems that the virtual keyboard does - flat, no tactile feedback to let [...]

dell-xps13

I've been a Mac fan for many years now, to the point where we're an all Apple household with three MacBooks. Jeanne has a 2010 15" MacBook Pro, while I have a 2014 13" MacBook Pro with retina display and a 2011 13" MacBook Air. The MBP has been my main workhorse for Gadgeteer reviews and Photoshop work, and the [...]

waterfield-bolt-brief-bag

The Bolt Briefcase from Waterfield has a more traditional business case look, so it's not quite as casual looking as a messenger bag can be. It will look equally at home in casual weekend use and in more formal business environments.  It's available in two sizes:  small to fit up to a 13" MacBook and large to [...]

rapoo-t120p-1

I've been using a Logitech V470 Bluetooth Cordless Laser Mouse with my MacBook Pro for a few years now. I like the size and fact that is wireless, but lately it has started behaving strangely. The cursor moves erratically on the screen when I move the mouse, making it difficult to do detailed Photoshop edits to [...]
