One of the problems with input devices is that they may cause repetitive strain injury. That's why I am continually on the lookout for devices that are easy to use, lightweight and that will work on most any surface. I think the Genius Pen Mouse is coming pretty close to the ideal. How easy is it to use?
Well if you've got an iPad, and you've been using the office applications you probably have found it's not the fastest way of inputting data. EFO have a new product we've just reviewed that could significantly improve the speed at which you input data into your iPad whilst on the move.

You think that they are all pretty much the same until you get your hands on this little beauty from NoiseHush. There are a lot of reasons why this one has become the speaker phone of choice for me.
Let me tell you why.
We’ve reviewed plenty of them here on DigitalReviews.net including solar ones. And the end result is very much the same for these external battery charging devices But right from the unpacking the Primo Cube got me excited.
Let’s see what this is all about.
Situation: you have a laptop/netbook and are forever plugging external devices in and out. Perhaps a hard drive, extra monitor, internet cable and so on. Solution: a USB docking station or port replicator. Better solution: a Targus ACP51AUZ USB 2.0 Docking Station with Video.
Result: Situation under control. Seems simple enough but how does it work in reality?
Just a few days ago we mentioned the announcement of the Aegis NetDock and already we're having a fantastic looking unit in gorgeous deep red hooked up to our computer!
That's pretty fast for a transpacific and continental shipment. Courtesy of Apricorn and ProLine Communications agency we're having a good look at what is probably the most essential accessory for any netbook and most tablet users: a portable hard drive combined with a DVD burner and a bunch of powered and unpowered USB ports.
Let's check out what's beyond the good looks.
A couple of weeks ago we reviewed a low-end Bluetooth keyboard and this time we present the high end of wireless keyboarding: the Freedom Pro Bluetooth Keyboard – kindly shipped to us by WirelessGround.com.
Whereas the Brando unit was cheap and looked cheap, this keyboard oozes quality.
Typing comfort is much better too as this is just about the full size of my business notebook’s keyboard, yet only about twice the size of the Brando unit when folded and a bit thicker.
Expect full functionality from the Freedom Pro and you will not be disappointed.
What does it have, you ask?
There are times when even an onscreen keyboard on a somewhat larger device like the HD2 or even an iPad is a bit awkward to use and it certainly doesn’t give the same feel or speed of an external keyboard.
Enter the Bluetooth enabled keyboards of which we will review two in the coming weeks.
A normal sized but foldable one and the super small Brando Slim Bluetooth Keyboard.
Two advantages spring out straightaway for the Brando device: price and size.
The Innergie mCube Mini is billed as "World's smallest auto/air adapter" for notebook, netbook and portable devices. When the review unit came in, it certainly is the smallest charger this reviewer has seen. I can't categorically agree with Innergie's claim but I dare say they are pretty close to the mark!
As a gadget reviewer and having a high level of gadgets in my daily repertoire, the amount of chargers I have to remember, tag and keep track of is staggering. As a result I have been keeping an eye on wireless charging systems for a little while. When Powermat announced their launch in April, Simms International was more than happy to send me a loaner to test drive.
The Powermat wireless charging system is billed as the solution to every household's problem with lost chargers and tangled wires. Let's see just how well it does the job.
