Guy can’t leave well enough alone and has (yet again) changed his recording setup. This was nearly a disaster which means that even MORE changes are afoot (so give him a hand…gold clap). Shawn King comes on to talk to the GMen about all the new Apple stuff, the death of Macworld as a print magazine, and Canadian Football…wait really?

Logitech Rechargeable Trackpad for Mac
Pro’s:
Rechargeable!!!
It’s flat.
Supports all Apple gestures etc.
Slightly larger surface area.
As sensitive as the Apple version
Con’s:
May appear to be slightly less sensitive – but it isn’t

Simply in terms of the angle alone he prefers this to my Apple trackpad. All the functionality is there too.

Easy-switch Bluetooth Keyboard K811
Logitech
$100 US or £80 UK

 

K811
Most keyboards are functional but some are more than that. The mini USB charged Logitech K811 Bluetooth keyboard falls into the latter category. The market place is filled with keyboards and keyboard covers, so what makes the K811 standout? This stylish Bluetooth keyboard can be paired with three different Bluetooth devices and switch between them effortlessly. Three things make it stand out from the crowd: flexibility, portability, and ease of use.

Gaz is not feeling well, so James Turner (from woodpad.co.uk fame) steps in to keep Guy in line (as if). BIG announcements regarding the 500th podcast! OWC is not only sponsoring some prizes to give to the best Bumper makers, but is also helping Guy go to the Macworld Expo this year! Woo Woo!

Gaz’s App PickAudio Book Builder, I’ve picked this before but I recently bought some audio books from a charity shop, and as iTunes does not import Audio CD’s I went straight back to my favored program. It’s available through the Mac App store in the UK at £2.99 this is a steal at that price. There is a free trial on the web site but to be honest just buy it. $4.99

Logitech UE Mobile Boombox – Review

On September 12, 2013, in Review, by Nick Rodriguez

Logitech UE Mobile Boombox
Company: Logitech
Price: $99.99

The mobile Bluetooth boombox product category is really popular as of late. I totally understand why. How awesome is it to be able to bring a small, portable device with you and get some great sound out of it to listen to some of your favorite tunes. No doubt the Jawbone Jambox is the king of this product category, but it is a bit pricy, and there is a ton of competition out there. Let take a look at what Logitech has to offer.

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover
Review

On November 22, 2012, in Bluetooth, iPad, Keyboard, Review, Tablet, by Steve Hammond

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover
Price: $99.99 US
Company: Logitech

Many iPad owners find the onscreen keyboard suitable for their usage, but when it comes to writing long emails or documents, a Bluetooth keyboard is welcome. While you can buy and use any standard Bluetooth keyboard, when traveling with your iPad, not all of them are very practical. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover may be the solution.

Logitech Tablet Keyboard for iPad

On December 30, 2011, in iPad, Keyboard, Review, by Guy Serle

 

Logitech Tablet Keyboard for iPad $69.99 (about $60.00 from Amazon)

I love my iPad. I truly do and its insanely great form and function blended together in an all around awesomely inspirational touch-based interface makes using it a joy. Just one little quandary. I hate using the onscreen keyboard.

Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 for Mac
Logitech
$50 US

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.

Harmony with Electronics

Logitech Harmony One Advanced Universal Remote
Company: Logitech
Price: $249 USD

How many remotes do you have in your living room? I have one for the satellite/DVR, one for the TV, one for DVD player, one for Apple TV, and that makes five in all. If my stereo was in the family room, I’d have six. Turning on the TV requires you pick up at least two different remotes and while watching TV it is not unusual for me to have two or three remotes lined up in front of me. If the portable phone rings, I’m all messed up!

Wouldn’t it be nice to consolidate all of these remotes into one? I thought so, and I went to Logitech to see what this well known maker of universal remotes had to offer. I found six models ranging in price from $49.99 to $399.99. The pricing gets higher as the feature set goes up. I decided to take the Logitech Harmony One Advanced Universal Remote (Hereto referred to as the “H1”) for a spin.

Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro – Review

On November 12, 2008, in Camera, Macintosh, Review, by Donny Yankellow

Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro
Company: Logitech

Price $129.99
www.logitech.com

This past spring I made it a mission of mine to find as many Mac compatible webcams as possible. It hasn’t been easy. They seem to be few and far between. Recently, Logitech released the QuickCam Vision Pro, a Mac only camera, that is one of the best webcams I have tried.

The QuickCam Vision Pro is not cheap. It retails for $129.99, but you get what you pay for. The unit is a nice solid camera that has an easel like clip for mounting on a monitor, laptop, is resting on a counter surface. It has a camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and a built in microphone.

When I say you get what you pay for, I mean it. The picture quality on this unit is fantastic! It is capable of up to 720p images up to 1600×1200 resolution. I was blown away by the crispness and clarity of the image. Of course, when talking over the internet the image quality will also depend on the connection speed on both ends. In addition to the great quality, the camera has autofocus, which quickly adjusts as you move the camera around.

ill-Logitech

On March 16, 2007, in Opinion, by Knot Gullible


I feel like I’m saying goodbye to an old friend.

Logitech makes the best mice. My very first multi-button rodent was the bald, wired Logitech. I love(d) my MX1000. The bluetooth mouse works flawlessly on my laptop. The battery in their wireless keyboard has never been replaced (in two years). My tunes play through Logitech speakers. Their Logitech Control Center (LCC) sucks great big rocks through tiny straws.

To begin with, my Logitech wireless keyboard’s neat programmable buttons stop responding . . . including volume control. I pull down the blue apple to system preferences and the Logitech Control Center.

And wait.

I’ve always been impressed by Logitech’s mice and trackballs, particularly since I’ve continued to use the Cordless Optical TrackMan for quite a while here. So when Logitech came out with the LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse, I decided it was time to see if an upgrade was due.

Logitech Curve Headphones for MP3

Yes, I’m still continuing my hunt for iPod Shuffle perfection when it comes to Shuffle accessories. The one thing that has bugged me from the beginning has been the Apple earbuds. They just don’t make it, at least for me, when it comes time to be active either running or working out.
