Now that is something that is usually hard to find and a bit expensive, but it might be very handy at times. If you have an old laptop that uses the older PCMCIA (CardBus) standard for extension cards you might be out of luck if you have to insert a new ExpressCard device for some reason. At such time this small Filco ExpressCard to USB adapter can be very useful, although it may not be very convenient to be used while traveling and using the mobile computer. The good news is that you can also use an ExpressCard device designed for your laptop on your desktop PC with the help of this adapter…
The adapter is compatible with both the smaller ExpressCard/34 standard and the bigger ExpressCard/54 devices so you don’t have to worry your device wont be compatible and of course you’ll still have to install drivers for the device in order for it to function correctly.
The ExpressCard to USB Adapter will cost you $39.09.
For years, it’s been one of the biggest frustrations that road warriors deal with while carrying around their laptop computers – their mice. The complaints are numerous: computer mice that are at home with a desktop computer feel unwieldy when paired with a laptop; they bulge when crammed into a computer bag, or are misplaced too easily; desktop mice re-developed for laptop use are too small, and feel like they can get lost in a user’s hand. And the trackpoint (that little red button in the middle of the keyboard)? Don’t even get laptop users started about that one.
Finally, there’s a real solution, in the form of a business card sized, Bluetooth-enabled mouse that stores neatly inside – that’s right, inside a laptop computer’s PC slot when it’s not being used. Newton Peripherals, an emerging company delivering user-friendly solutions to mobile computing challenges, today announced the introduction of the MoGo MouseBT.
The second you place a MoGo MouseBT in your hand, you get it; this is what a mobile mouse is supposed to be. It’s light enough that it moves easily, yet it’s big enough that you don’t feel you’re trying to work with a mouse the size of a walnut. MoGo MouseBT redefines what road warriors and other laptop users should expect from a computer mouse. They have been trying to “make do” for years with other products; MoGo MouseBT is an elegant solution that solves their frustrations.
MoGo MouseBT is a technologically advanced wonder, featuring patent-pending optics and a system that automatically levers the mouse up into your hand as you work. With no batteries to replace, the MoGo MouseBT recharges in less than an hour in the PC card slot of your laptop.
Most important, however, is that its unique design gives it advantages over any other mobile mouse on the market today. MoGo MouseBT is ergonomically friendly and intuitive to use, right down to the two indentations on its top that clearly enable left- and right-clicking. A “kickstand” locks into place, automatically levering the full-width MoGo MouseBT into a natural position in the user’s hand, making its operation that much easier.
But words alone don’t adequately convey MoGo MouseBT’s cool factor; seeing it in action gives people the ability to understand how it is designed to change and improve their mobile computing experience.
The price of the MoGo Bluetooth Mouse is currently $59.99.
