Have you ever been annoyed by your mouse and it’s incessant clicking while you navigate the web? Actually, you probably haven’t. However, your partner might have a problem with it, depending on how close your workstation is to the bedroom.

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.

JBL OnBeat Speaker Dock Specializes in iPads, Doesn’t Mind iPhones and iPods

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.

EliteFolio iPad 2 Case: Get Your Daily Allowance of Carbon Fiber

iPad cases are a dime a dozen, but this one is made out of carbon fiber, a material known for its extreme lightness and cool looks. It’s often used in race cars and bicycles, so why not use it for a portable device case for the iPad? The only problem is the price: 200 clams for a case? I don’t know.

Oceanworld Manly, via Wikipedia

Probably the most disturbing thing in this episode is a grown man crying like a 5-year old. I mean, come on. Sure, you have a disability, but that’s no excuse for behaving like a toddler. His mother must have mollycoddled him a bit too much. That much is obvious since he’s running the race with her. Luke was pathetic and he caused his team to be eliminated.

On average, LED lighting should consume less energy than other sorts of lighting technology readily available.

Braun Digital Watch Gets Analog Scroll Wheel

I’ve never thought as Braun as a watch company (mostly an appliance company), but apparently that’s not the case. They’re working on a new digital watch that comes with an analog twist. No, there won’t be a traditional watch face, but there will be an analog dial, a sort of analog scroll wheel, which is kind of cool.
