Nobody can argue the recent popularity and publicity surrounding Christopher Nolan’s final installment of the Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises. While reviews about the film and its characters may be mixed, it’s hard to say that the merchandising of Batman-related products hasn’t been a success. Mimoco has just added the characters of Batman and Bane from The Dark Knight Rises to its popular line of character-themed USB 2.0 flash memory drives.
Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 for Mac
This new solar-powered wireless keyboard is almost perfect. It works great, but it has some perfectly annoying “features.”
There is no printed manual or full set of Internet instructions. Its web site is incomplete. No built-in indent on the keyboard is provided for storage and travel with its USB dongle. There is no way to know when the caps lock key is activated.
Aside from those four minuses, Logitech has done a stellar job with engineering and design of its new Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 for Mac. Solar and ambient light battery charging are effortless. So is power management using a free software download. Battery efficiency is exceptional.

I discretely inserted XtremKey into a rear USB port on a new iMac, and its icon mounted instantly on the computer’s Desktop.
