Asus South Africa has made its Eee Pad Transformer official. Never heard of the device? To quickly describe it, it’s part tablet, part netbook. Looks like Asus couldn’t decide whether it wanted to make a tablet or a netbook, so it made both. The Eee Pad Transformer is a tablet which docks itself to an optional hinged keyboard and offers a long, long battery life of 16 hours
The Eee Pad Transformer’s biggest thing is that you can use it as a standard, Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablet. Surf the Web, fiddle about with apps, that kind of thing.

Logitech has added a new wireless mouse to its line up with the launch of the Logitech M325 wireless mouse. Combining Logitech’s world best selling shape with new micro-precise technology that is specifically designed to improve your online navigation experience with a better mix of precision, comfort and control.
No matter how much time you spend at your computer, the Logitech Wireless Mouse M325 keeps your hand happy thanks to its feel-good shape and textured rubber grips. Optimized for web browsing, the micro-precise scroll wheel – with four times the number of ratchets as the average mouse – fits your style, and makes reading Facebook or reviewing Google searches even easier. Plus the tilted wheel gives you trouble-free backward or forward Web movement.

That’s not the case with Logitech’s newest scroll wheel. Their precision scroll wheel contains 72 rugged, tiny ratchets. As a result, the ratchets are small enough so the wheel spins smoothly. And you’ll have the precise control you need for websites, spreadsheets, slideshows and other presentations. Read the rest of this entry »
