Bluetake BT400GL Bluetooth Headset

I want to start out by saying that I typically do not use a Bluetooth headset all that often. I’m not one of those people that you see in the grocery store walking around with a blinking plastic blob hanging out of their ear. The only time I really use a headset is when I’m driving to and from my day job. The headset that I’ve been using for awhile now has been the Cardo Systems scala-500. I’ve found this headset to be both comfortable to wear and easy to use. A few weeks ago, Bluetake approached me to see if I might like to test the BT400GL.

Look Ma, No Mouse!

Check out this video demo of a “Multi-touch” computer user interface that was recorded almost 1 year ago. http://www.ted.com/tedtalks/tedtalksplayer.cfm?key=j_han Very cool stuff! I wonder how long it will be before we actually do completely abandon keyboards and mice. Anyone care to speculate?

Spotlight Gadget: Buffalo Mouse

8mm thick, 800dpi USB mouse from Buffalo that features an automatically retractable cable (at the push of a button) and unique scroll wheel for web surfing and other applications. Looks cool, but it’s $69. What mouse do you use while traveling?
