VueZone Wireless Security Cameras – No Network Cable – No Power Supply

I've seen several security camera systems for domestic use that are marketed as being wireless. Which was true in a sense, since they have a wireless network connection to connect to your home router. What was not mentioned clearly in the descriptions, however, was that they still need a power source – a wire, in other words. At the other end of the spectrum, there are cameras that can get their power via the network cabling, eliminating the local power supply but requiring data cabling at the place of installation. Avaak has announced for this summer the Vue Personal Video Network that lives up to the promise of being truely wireless.

Orbita Launches a Radically New Mouse Concept for Heavy Scrollers

I was the owner of a wheel mouse for quite some time before I realized just how many unnecessary mouse movements I could save while scrolling through documents. Today, I can't do without it.
Some manufacturers, such as Logitech, later introduced an additional improvement to the wheel mouse in the form of a right-left movement function, allowing you to shift the info on your screen left or right without having to click on any scroll bars. And for the average user, this might be enough. But for those who need to do a lot of scrolling through video footage, 3D graphical design packages, very large spreadsheets, or just have fun with Google Earth or games, Orbita has really been thinking out of the box to come up with a radical new mouse design.
