Posted in CES 2008,Mouse by Reuben Drake on January 8th, 2008

IceRage Pocket Mouse in designer colors and slim design for portable useAccording to IceRage a mouse is hardly just a user input device for you computer, but is also a fashion statement. Because of this the company is debuting two of its new mouse models at CES – the Pocket Mouse and the Ultimate Pocket Mouse – both of which are available this month.

The pocket mouse appears to almost ignore ergonomics in favor of a fashion model-like slender design that comes in colors of blue, pink, green, silver, white and of course the oh-so-slimming black. The Pocket Mouse works well for use with a notebook on the go and comes as either a USB wired (with a retractable cord) for $60 or can be wireless via Bluetooth for another $10. It features 800 dpi tracking, a complete lack of affinity for either hand over the other and is compatible with a PC or Mac.

Sony Microvault USB drive with click action

Posted in CES 2008,Sony,USB Flash Drives by Darrin Olson on January 8th, 2008

Sony Microvault USB drive has click retracting featureAmong the many cool things Sony is showcasing this year at CES one of the smaller items not to be overlooked is the addition of a new style of Microvault USB flash drive. This new drive has a new “Sony”-style look to it with a flat black finish and a glowing Orange LED section towards the back end letting you know when the drive is connected and active.

The new USB 2.0 compliant Microvault comes in capacities from 1GB up to 16GB but probably the most significant feature of this otherwise uneventful USB drive is the clicking action. The is no cap to protect the USB connection because the connection will actually retract back into the case when the other side is clicked, much like a retractable pen. Clicking it again extends the connection for use in a number of compatible devices. Also, according to Sony, simply removing the flash drive will cause the USB connection to automatically contract. We’re guessing it’s due to friction when pulling out the connection.
