Nexus SM-8000: Quiet as a Mouse

Have you ever been annoyed by your mouse and it’s incessant clicking while you navigate the web? Actually, you probably haven’t.

Samsung Laptops Ship With Keylogger

It’s one thing when your computer gets infected with malware and viruses, it’s another thing when the manufacturer decides to pre-install a keylogger to monitor what you are doing on your laptop.

This is JBL’s first iPad speaker and it looks pretty cool, but isn’t exactly the most forward thinking in terms of technical features. It’s compatible with most iDevices, from iPods to iPhones. It’s clear though that it has been made to accommodate the iPad first and foremost.
