By - November 12, 2008 2 Pictures
Apple’s switch to Intel chips has proven to be a good move. Giving Macs the ability to run Windows and therefore Windows based applications has helped Mac sales almost triple in the past three years after a decade of stagnation. That equates to a sizeable number of people making the switch from Windows PCs to Intel based Macs. Recognizing this growing market, Belkin has released the Switch-to-Mac Cable, which provides a simple way to transfer files, settings, preferences, and more from a PC to a Mac. Read More

June 29, 2007 Kurzweil’s Law (aka “the law of accelerating returns”) suggests that in an evolutionary process, positive feedback increases order exponentially, meaning that the speed and cost-effectiveness of a process increase exponentially over time, both for biology and technology. It’s a complex way of saying that we’re seeing unprecedented (20,000 years of change this century) and accelerating change, and in part explains the remarkable oversight that Belkin’s new washable mouse overcomes. With such rapid penetration of new technology, we’re bound to overlook some of the possibilities. For example, 13% of all people are left-handed, yet the first mouse designed just for left handed computer users was not created until 2006.

The company’s new CushTop and PocketTop enable you to use your laptop comfortably while on your couch, bed or floor. The US$40 CushTop acts as a cushion, providing padded comfort between your laptop and your lap. The US$50 PocketTop acts as a case and mobile workstation, providing a built-in cooling pad and storage space for laptop accessories. Both will ship in North America in November, with launches in Asia, Europe and Australia to follow prior to Santa coming (apologies to all those who don’t believe in Santa). Read More
