Go Mini Nano Wireless Optical Travel Mouse
Review

Go Mini Nano Wireless Optical Travel Mouse
Verbatim
Price: $35.00


I love the color red. When I received Verbatim’s red Go Mini travel mouse, I knew it would be inseparable from my laptop. The travel mouse is very lightweight, a mere 7.5 ounces, takes two AAA batteries (included), and has a nano 2.4 GHz wireless receiver that plugs into a USB 2.0 port and is also USB 1.1 compatible. There is a small rear compartment that is the battery case and stores the nano receiver. The device has a tiny scroll wheel as well as a left and right mouse click mechanism. There is a small on/off switch on the underside of the mouse. It’s compatible with Windows 7, XP, 2000, and Vista and Mac OSX 10.4X and higher. I tested it on a Macbook Pro, PowerBook, and iMac.

Got iPads?

On November 29, 2010, in Apple, Features, iPad, Macbook Pro, Macintosh, by Mike Breed

I recently had the good fortune to attend this year’s annual STANYS (Science Teachers Association of New York State) Conference in Rochester, NY. Think of it as a Macworld Conference, except for science teachers. It’s always a great way to network with colleagues you usually only speak to online and to get new ideas to spark student interest in the sciences.

In the past, many teachers have brought a laptop of some sort with them to access e-mail, take notes during sessions and access the Internet. For the past several years, the number of people bringing laptops with them to the conference has grown noticeably larger — until this year.

Nemo Memo
Ten Tech Travel Tips, v2006.11

On November 8, 2006, in How-To, Opinion, by John Nemerovski


I’m waiting at ORD for my flight back home to TUS. Passing through TSA territory was not BAD. Here is a TIP or TWO to help you FLY with as much ease and comfort as you CAN.

1. Travel light. If you have to think about it, don’t bring it. Winter travel season is here, with flight delays and luggage confusion. Bring only what you need, and pack as much as you can into your suitcase. Carry-on luggage is under scrutiny like never before, and updated info is posted at TSA. When in doubt, leave it out. Buy and use a rolling suitcase that is either a strange color or uniquely decorated with peculiar tape designs or ribbons, for instant identification. Have your personal information inserted into several places within each item you bring.
