The redesigned Siri Remote for Apple TV. | Photo by Chris Welch / The Verge Apple’s new Siri Remote introduced a gesture that makes it easy to scrub through content by turning the control pad into a scroll wheel. But a number of Apple TV users noticed that the feature doesn’t work properly on some services, like HBO Max, or at all on others, like Disney Plus. A spokesperson for Disney Plus confirmed to The Verge that the feature — one of the best on the redesigned Siri Remote — isn’t supported on its service. It’s not a service issue, though, but instead related to custom video players. Some streaming apps available on Apple TV use their own players, while others use the tvOS media player. The jogging gesture works with streaming apps that use Apple’s native media player, but it is not yet supported for... Continue reading…

Photo by Chris Welch / The Verge Users are complaining that the Disney Plus and HBO Max Apple TV apps aren’t properly supporting the excellent new Siri Remote. Disney Plus has yet to be updated to make use of the remote’s helpful scroll wheel scrubbing feature, which works on rival Netflix and Apple TV Plus apps. The HBO Max app has more issues, Screen Times reports, and lacks support for several of the remote’s features and voice commands. When we tried the HBO Max app for ourselves, we found it doesn’t seem to support the new remote’s D-pad. Instead, we could only use the remote’s touchpad circle, which is technically an element of the remote you’re supposed to be able to disable. Scrubbing using the touchpad works, just very badly. The cause of these problems... Continue reading…

  Working from home brings its own set of challenges, but having the right tools on hand can help you stay productive. We've rounded up the best work-from-home tech you can get to set up your home office. Our recommendations include a sharp computer monitor, a comfy keyboard and mouse, as well as an effective webcam and other essentials. We've personally used all these items when we have worked from home over the years. Read more: The best computer monitors of 2020 One of the biggest challenges of working from home is setting up a home office with the right tools, but once you've got everything in place, it's easier to get your work done.   Even if you don't have a ton of space or a dedicated room to turn into a home office, you can still have a comfortable and productive work-from-home setup. All you need is a table, chair, and a few key pieces of tech.  We've compiled this handy list of the best work-from-home tech to help you increase your productivity. The main tech essentials everyone needs to work remotely are reliable internet and a laptop, but we also recommend getting a monitor so you have a bigger screen to work from as well as a decent keyboard and mouse. With these gadgets, you'll feel much more comfortable working than you would if you had to squint over your small laptop screen all day.  Beyond those main tech gadgets, you may also want to get a few more accessories, so we've added others that are enjoyable to have, including everything from headphones and speakers to webcams and smart lights. My colleagues and I have all worked from home for varying lengths of time, and these are the tech gadgets we believe are essential to our productivity when we work remotely. Updated on 3/17/2020 by Joe Osborne, Tony Villas-Boas, and Les Shu: Added several new picks for newly conceived categories. Checked all links and prices for accuracy. This is an ongoing process, and we're updating these links regularly.A wireless mouse for your home office Logitech's MX Anywhere 2S Product Embed: Product Name: Logitech MX Anywhere 2S Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5eab0528fc593d77c00a3863&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Logitech's Master 3 Model Wireless Mouse Product Embed: Product Name: Logitech Master 3 Model Wireless Laser Mouse Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e7a18e1ba85ee6978411762&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Logitech's MX Master Wireless Mouse is our top pick for the best computer mouse for good reason. It has an ergonomic design that's comfortable to use for hours on end and you can customize the functions of its buttons and the speed of the scroll wheel. I've been using this mouse to work for several months now, and it's helped limit the amount of wrist and hand fatigue I feel at the end of the day. It's also wireless, so it's an excellent mouse to have in your home office setup. — Malarie Gokey, Deputy Editor A cheap Bluetooth keyboard for your home office Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard Product Embed: Product Name: Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e691d5384159f6a00054ed2&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% I've been using Logitech's K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard in the office for almost a full year. I like its compact design and I find the keys responsive for typing. I never use the numberpad on giant keyboards, so I prefer this no-frills option. It's wireless, too, so my small home office setup doesn't look cluttered by a bunch of cables. For about $30, it's an excellent affordable option. — Malarie Gokey, Deputy Editor A gel wrist rest for your mouse Kensington ErgoSoft Wrist Rest Product Embed: Product Name: Kensington ErgoSoft Wrist Rest Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e691f6184159f6d1103d795&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% To limit wrist fatigue, I've been using Kensington's ErgoSoft Wrist Rest. It's essentially a small gel-filled wrist pad that you can position exactly where you need it. The sticky underside keeps it from shifting around on the table, but it's ideal to have the option to angle it or remove it as needed throughout the workday. — Malarie Gokey, Deputy Editor A foldable Bluetooth keyboard Plugable Bluetooth Keyboard Product Embed: Product Name: Plugable Bluetooth Keyboard Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e691ffd54f25c630f4717a6&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% If you have limited space to work from home or you need to pack up your setup and take it with you, a foldable Bluetooth keyboard may be the answer. I've been using this full-size one from Plugable when I'm working from home unexpectedly. At the end of the day, I can easily fold it up and hide it away to regain access to my dining table. — Malarie Gokey, Deputy Editor A smart display Google Nest Hub Product Embed: Product Name: Google Nest Hub with Google Assistant Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5d1bb4c9a17d6c33c85ebef6&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% I like to have a clock nearby when I'm working from home, because I am wont to lose track of time entirely. I also like to have music playing in the background. To address both of those needs, I set up the Google Nest Hub on my desk. Not only does it always show me the time, but it can also play music, do math for me, and answer any random questions I have while working. — Malarie Gokey, Deputy Editor An affordable 27-inch monitor 27-inch Dell FreeSync Monitor Product Embed: Product Name: Dell 27-inch IPS LED FHD FreeSync Monitor Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e6921a554f25c656a5b86a9&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150%Product Embed: Product Name: Dell 27-Inch LED FreeSync Monitor Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e711232c48540797d1e0c52&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Although you can get fancy 4K, curved monitors for hundreds or even thousands of dollars, there are also plenty of decent displays for $200 or less. This 27-inch Dell FreeSync Monitor has a full HD IPS LED screen that should be both big enough and high-res enough for most people's needs. It uses Dell's ComfortView tech to limit reflections, blue light, and other distractions. It's the monitor I have setup for working from home. — Malarie Gokey, Deputy Editor A laptop that can be your WFH warrior for a long time Google Pixelbook Go Product Embed: Product Name: Google Pixelbook Go Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5dadcf6f4af9091a0d33d8b5&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Acer Chromebook 15.6 Product Embed: Product Name: Acer 15.6 Chromebook Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e7a1b1f2d654f22a2198f1a&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150%Product Embed: Product Name: Acer Chromebook 15.6 Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e711532c485405774664ae9&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% While many might scoff at $649 for a Chromebook, hold that thought until you take a peek at the Google Pixelbook Go's 1080p display, its excellent keyboard, sharp 1080p webcam, and spacious trackpad. For a combination of WFH-ready features such as these within similar aluminum-clad laptops, expect to pay at least $300 more. If you want to save even more, we'd suggest the Acer Chromebook 15, a $325 15-inch laptop with a 1080p screen and just enough performance and space to get you through this stint of working from home. — Joe Osborne, Senior Technology Editor A webcam for acing all of those video meetings Logitech C920 Pro Computer Webcam  Product Embed: Product Name: Logitech C920 HD Pro Webcam Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e711340c48540544d356e36&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150%Product Embed: Product Name: Logitech C920 Pro Computer Webcam Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e692425e4f9fe72875ecd59&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Logitech StreamCam Plus Product Embed: Product Name: Logitech StreamCam Plus Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e8631d82d654f3e182ddca0&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% If you expect to be holding internal (and outgoing) video meetings for quite some time, and you aren't going for the above recommended laptop, then pick up the Logitech C920. This is a 1080p webcam with an excellent stand for laptops, monitors, and tripods. While this is a plug-and-play option, it's also equipped with enhanced controls and filters for power users. That's a lot of webcam for just under $50. — Joe Osborne, Senior Technology Editor A mousepad with a wrist rest to prevent RSIs 3M Precise Mouse Pad Product Embed: Product Name: 3M Precise Mouse Pad with Gel Wrist Rest Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e692594e4f9fe749766adc8&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Look, there's enough to worry about much less a debilitating work injury preventing you from getting your work done. That's why we're recommending the 3M Precise Mouse Pad, because it's cheap, effective, and will keep your mouse hand comfortable with a wrist rest. Also, its tracking surface is designed for modern optical mice, so you're basically covered from every angle for less than $20. — Joe Osborne, Senior Technology Editor   A comfy office chair to plant your bottom Knoll ReGeneration Product Embed: Product Name: Knoll ReGeneration Chair Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e6926c184159f7747313ee3&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Space Seating Professional AirGrid Product Embed: Product Name: Space Seating Professional AirGrid Chair Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e69277054f25c6dc913d143&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% It's entirely too easy to spend a fortune on an office chair, so while we can personally recommend the Knoll ReGeneration as it's the New York City Insider office's chair of choice, it's also more than $800 for individual pricing. So, may we suggest the far more approachable Space Seating Professional AirGrid? It's a fraction of the price at $175, and offers many similar comfort features. — Joe Osborne, Senior Technology Editor A USB or USB-C hub for all of your gear Satechi Aluminum Multi-Port Adapter V2 Product Embed: Product Name: Satechi Aluminum Multi-Port Adapter V2 Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5cffebecba3a7341ee69b3e5&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% HooToo 6-in-1 USB-C Adapter Product Embed: Product Name: HooToo 6-in-1 USB-C Adapter Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5dcd6ce63afd372b2d0fc42d&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Anker 10 Port 60W Data Hub Product Embed: Product Name: Anker 10 Port 60W Data Hub Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e69293084159f7ad83ca4e6&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% If you have a work laptop or even a personal one released within the last two years, chances are that it has one or more USB-C ports. Naturally, chances are if you have a USB-C laptop you have plenty more gadgets and accessories that use traditional USB or some other more legacy form of connection. That's where the Satechi Aluminum Multi-Port Adapter V2 comes in with several ports and passthrough charging. It's also $80 generally, so something like the HooToo 6-in-1 USB-C Adapter could do just as well for less than half as much. For anyone still rocking straight USB ports, we suggest the Anker 10 Port 60W Data Hub for $43. — Joe Osborne, Senior Technology Editor A pair of noise-cancelling headphones Bose 700 Headphones Product Embed: Product Name: Bose 700 Headphones Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e6671f0fee23d11fc252258&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Though working from home likely gives you the freedom to pump up the volume on your speakers, headphones can still come in handy in many home offices — especially noise-cancelling models like the Bose 700s. Perfect for tuning out potential distractions around the house, or intruding sounds from outside, the Bose 700s feature some of the best noise cancellation tech on the market. They're especially well-suited for use during important work calls since the mics can isolate your voice from background noises. The Bose 700s are also our pick for the most comfortable noise-cancelling headphones, so you can wear them throughout the workday without any problems. — Steven Cohen, Technology Editor       A desk for your new make-shift home office Three Posts Lamantia Computer Desk Product Embed: Product Name: Three Posts Lamantia Desk Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e692ac654f25c71b7398a6e&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Foundstone Black Desk (Out of stock until November) Product Embed: Product Name: Foundstone Black Desk Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e86339b671de0345b5abfd4&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Fully Jarvis Electric Adjustable Height Desk Product Embed: Product Name: Fully Jarvis Standing Desk Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5cf55b6d11e20513f206a126&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Parsons Desk Product Embed: Product Name: Wade Logan Parsons Desk Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5ed00391191824181c4cecf5&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Generally speaking, we recommend the Three Posts Lamantia Computer Desk as the best desk for its drawer space, dashing looks, and decent $220 price. However, those looking to save as much cash as possible without working on a box should take a look at the $107 Zipcode Design Folkston Desk. Finally, our favorite standing desk is the Fully Jarvis Electric Adjustable Height, which adjusts electronically to save your back. — Joe Osborne, Senior Technology Editor An affordable smart speaker Amazon Echo Dot Product Embed: Product Name: Amazon Echo Dot Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5d7ba68e2e22af0c477ca8a5&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% My Echo Dot has become an essential desktop companion whenever I work from home. The affordable Alexa device is our top pick for best budget smart speaker, and it packs all of the same digital assistant features found on Amazon's more expensive Echo products into a compact, budget-friendly package. Sound quality can't compete with genuine stereo speakers, but the Echo Dot gets the job done for casual background listening while I work. It's also a convenient tool for setting alarms and reminders, getting quick answers to questions, and receiving news and weather updates. And best of all? Its reliable voice control means you never have to step away from your keyboard.  — Steven Cohen, Technology Editor An UltraWide monitor LG 34WK650-W 34" 21:9 Monitor Product Embed: Product Name: LG 34WK650-W 34 Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e7a1cb12d41c166ec0b0813&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% I had the pleasure of testing out LG's 34WK650-W 34" 21:9 monitor for a few months and it completely opened my eyes up to the benefits of an UltraWide display in a home office. Typically, I work with a 24-inch 16:10 Dell UltraSharp monitor, and it performs very well for most needs. There are times, however, when there's just not enough real estate available on the screen for all the applications I have open. With the UltraWide design of the LG 34WK650-W, however, it's basically like having two monitors in one. Organizing different windows around your screen is a breeze, allowing you to multitask like a pro. The monitor also packs in several advanced display features, like HDR and FreeSync, which make it a fine fit for entertainment and gaming when you're not working. — Steven Cohen, Technology Editor An affordable pair of desktop speakers Logitech Z313 Speaker System Product Embed: Product Name: Logitech Z313 2.1-Channel Speaker System Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e692da884159f01af77c5c3&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Logitech is known for its reliable desktop speaker models, and the company's Z313 are our top pick when it comes to budget computer speakers. The system includes compact left and right speakers, along with a dedicated subwoofer for extra bass while listening to music throughout the workday. Though far from high-end, audio performance is solid for such an inexpensive system, making them a very affordable upgrade from integrated speakers on your monitor or laptop. — Steven Cohen, Technology Editor An ergonomic keyboard Logitech Ergo K860 Product Embed: Product Name: Logitech Ergo K860 Keyboard Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e692e8884159f02b329b436&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% If you plan to be desk-bound, an economic keyboard is essential, and my favorite is the new Logitech Ergo K860. I have used many ergonomic keyboards for the past 25 years, and none have worked as well as this one. I like the elevated wrist support that keeps my hands and arms in proper typing position. The split keyboard does take some getting used to, but after a day, I found myself typing away with minimal typos. The keys are well positioned and require very little travel distance, which means less strain on your hands and wrists. It's wireless, so you can easily move it, and it supports up to three Bluetooth devices — I love the ability to switch between my MacBook Pro, iPhone, and iPad quickly. Since I started using this keyboard regularly, it has lessened my wrist pain. — Les Shu, Senior Guides Editor A portable hard drive Seagate BarraCuda Fast SSD Product Embed: Product Name: Seagate Fast SSD (500GB) Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e6930fb84159f05ff4a629a&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% If you have separate computers for work and home, an easy file sharing solution is to store on a portable hard drive, like Seagate's BarraCuda Fast SSD. In my previous years of testing hard drives, Seagate's are some of the more reliable ones I've used. This particular unit uses solid-state memory, which allows for fast read and write speeds (it can be used for gaming and productivity), and you can toss it inside a bag and not worry about damage to moving parts. The BarraCuda Fast SSD supports USB-C for fast transfer speeds of up to 540MB per second, but it's also compatible with older USB ports, albeit slower. — Les Shu, Senior Guides Editor A desk lamp TaoTronics LED Desk Lamp Product Embed: Product Name: TaoTronics LED Desk Lamp Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5d9f4f47122bd531554a0209&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Whether you're burning the midnight oil or just need extra illumination, this TaoTronics LED desk lamp can add some much needed light. The brightness is adjustable to suit your workspace, and it has a built-in Qi-wireless charger for recharging your phone. For more desk lamp options, check out our guide.  — Les Shu, Senior Guides Editor A conference speaker phone Anker PowerConf Bluetooth Speakerphone Product Embed: Product Name: Anker PowerConf Bluetooth Speakerphone Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5e6931c5e4f9fe0664055333&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Unless it's a quick call, I'm not a fan of using headsets or putting a phone against my ear for long hours. I also don't like terrible sounding speakers on my phone or laptop. The solution I've been using is the PowerConf Bluetooth Speakerphone from Anker. Yes, it's designed for group conferences, and it's portable, so you can take it on the road. But I like the sound quality it produces and that it has six microphones, so it can pick up my voice clearly regardless of where I am in the room. — Les Shu, Senior Guides Editor A multifunction printer Canon Pixma TR4520 Printer Product Embed: Product Name: Canon Pixma TR4520 Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5deeb00dfd9db207117b8cc5&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% Whether you need to print, scan, copy, or even fax, the Canon Pixma TR4520 is an affordable all-in-one that does all those things. It's small enough that it doesn't take up a lot of space, and it has high-end features like two-sided printing and an automatic document feeder for multi-page scanning. For more affordable printer options, check out our guide. — Les Shu, Senior Guides Editor A micro-bead mouse wrist rest to keep you RSI free IMAK Cushion Ergobeads Wrist Rest Product Embed: Product Name: IMAK ErgoBeads Mouse Support Cushion Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5f4023991918243a0c7d5a38&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% I have a confession to make: I've been using the same Imak ErgoBeads wrist rest featured here for an undetermined amount of years. I've washed it regularly, of course, but let's just say it's not something I would let go of as a hand-me-down. This thing is the definition of computing comfort, in my opinion, and there are bundles that include a wrist rest for your keyboard. There's something about beads that perfectly contour to your wrist and feel like a down pillow underneath it. Don't make this tough time even worse with a repeated stress injury —  trust me, I know from experience. — Joe Osborne, Senior Tech Editor A strange-looking mouse that's worth the risk Logitech MX Vertical Wireless Mouse Product Embed: Product Name: Logitech MX Vertical Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5f40259d5fa9a46bf609b8de&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% The Logitech MX Vertical looks odd, and feels even stranger when you put your hand on it. But after a few days, using it becomes second nature, and it's noticeably more comfortable than normal mice, especially if you use computers all day. I had an MX Vertical I left at BI's NYC office before the pandemic, and I ventured back into the city from the safety of my suburban home during the pandemic to get it back for my home setup. — Antonio Villas-Boas, Senior Reporter Nothing beats a classic mechanical keyboard Durgod Taurus K310 Mechanical Keyboard Product Embed: Product Name: Durgod Taurus K310 Mechanical Keyboard Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5f4026ff505f5338371d119a&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% I used the Durgod Taurus K310 mechanical keyboard for typing, and I absolutely love it. It has a classic mechanical look and feel, and it's a dream to type on. I have the "Cherry MX Silent Red" switches on mine, which means it's very quiet for a mechanical keyboard, which are typically loud. It has the Windows logo on the Command key, but it's equally compatible with MacOS devices, too. I like having the number pad on my keyboards, but it's also available in a smaller option without the number pad called the Taurus K320. — Antonio Villas-Boas, Senior Reporter     Don't settle for a cheap, flimsy office mouse pad Steelseries QCK Heavy Mousepad Product Embed: Product Name: Steelseries QcK Heavy Mousepad Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5f40293c3ad861118e3737fd&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% I initially wanted a larger, thick mouse pad for PC gaming, but I'd find it difficult to be productive without the Steelseries QCK Heavy mousepad. Indeed, it's about twice as thick and twice as large as a standard cheap office mousepad, the cloth feels premium and smooth, and it's washable. It gives you a lot more room to swing your mouse around comfortably, and it makes a surprisingly positive impact on your comfort without needing to spend very much. — Antonio Villas-Boas, Senior Reporter       A worthy alternative to Bose's noise-cancelling headphones Sony WH-1000XM4 Noise Cancelling Headphones Product Embed: Product Name: Sony WH-1000XM4 Noise Cancelling Headphones Card Type: button https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService?id=5f402aa4de1e9615a2357d97&type=button&live=true Width: 100% Height: 150% The Bose 700 are featured in this guide as ideal home office noise cancelling headsets. But I'd urge anyone to take a look at the Sony WH-1000XM4 noise cancelling headphones. They're slightly more comfortable than the Bose, in my opinion, and their customizable sound means I enjoy my music more than I do with the Bose, too. Noise cancelling is about as good, and they're $50 cheaper than the Bose, too. Plus, they dramatically reduce ambient noise for better phone calls, and there's no need to switch between your computer and your phone, as they can connect to both devices at the same time. — Antonio Villas-Boas, Senior Reporter
Razer is best known for its all-black, LED-filled gaming accessories that are built to keep you gaming at your peak. But its latest lineup, consisting of a wireless mouse, a wireless mechanical keyboard, and a mousepad to match, is far simpler in function and design. The $99.99 Pro Click is a large wireless mouse with a palm-filling design and a grippy, concave thumb rest. Razer teamed up with office ergonomics company Humanscale to develop it. The mouse was built to position your wrist a 30-degree angle, which Razer and Humanscale say can help prevent discomfort and injuries, like tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. It’s a fresh look for Razer; the company is probably hoping you’ll confuse its mouse with something like Logitech’s MX... Continue reading…
Might shortly think the same method with regards to going to rent a flick.The strengths for the consumer are huge, mainly in this specific day and age of high petrol prices and even terrible traffic.This exclusive edition is loaded with specific Luminosidad audio and video clip articles, including Halo soundtracks, theatrical trailers, and the special show of Crimson compared to Glowing blue only readily available for the Zune.Even though the idea has a control the fact that looks for just about all the world such as a scroll wheel, it's actually some sort of 4-way cursor button, much like on a TV remote control control.A new 4-way cursor is not precisely how several consumers want to control their portable video online players, so they have the most effective with their dollars in benefit of the mp3 player.For those consumers who also have bought their units knowing that, they have typically the capacity to be able to download and even appreciate a variety of video clips, TELLY shows and motion pictures with a very nice, movable program.The ipod device may allow the utilization of Apple's AAC codec, MP3 FORMAT, Apple Lossless, AIF, or perhaps WAV platforms for sound downloads.The Zune makes use of, one guess here, Microsoft's WMA and even WMV forms for stereo and video respectively.
Since crafting its first mouse in 1982, Logitech has been a staple in the peripherals industry.My introduction to the brand was in 2002, when I got my very first desktop computer and laptops were still too expensive for casuals, and certainly for game-obsessed children like I used to be.A Logitech rep obliged, but only under the condition they sent me the MX Master 3 along with its sibling, the MX Keys keyboard.I’ve devoted a separate section on each device, but I’ve also included a segment for features that these gadgets share, so make sure to check it out as well — this is where the MX combo excels.Oh, and it finally switches to USB-C for charging.If you apply enough force, the free-wheeling effect extends to precision mode, and I’m not a huge fan of that.
These wireless mice on this list get our vote for the best 2019 has to offer.We’re sure you’ve got specific reasons to opt for a wireless mouse, instead of a wired one.The best wireless mice are more portable and travel-friendly, thanks to the lack of a pesky cable.They even offer more flexibility and range, as you’re not limited by a pesky cable, so you don’t need to be sitting next to your laptop or computer to use your pointing device.These days, the best part about having a wireless mouse in your setup is that they are no longer limited in reliability and responsiveness.And, while we haven’t tested every mouse on this list, we fashion ourselves as wireless mouse experts, and we’ve picked out five of the best wireless mice on the market right now.
Button of the Month is a monthly look at what some of those buttons and switches are like on devices old and new, and it aims to appreciate how we interact with our devices on a physical, tactile levelLogitech’s MX Master 3 might be the best mouse ever made.There are a lot of good things about it, but what elevates it above the nest of other mice out there is — without a doubt — the scroll wheel, which is unparalleled by any other.The MX Master series has always had great scroll wheels, going back to the original model in 2015.But the recently released MX Master 3 improves on that with a new magnet-powered scroll wheel mechanism that’s faster and more precise than the old model, as well as almost completely silent to boot.I’m not going to get too into the technical aspects of the changes Logitech has made here with the magnetic mechanism (I highly recommend reading this in-depth teardown from Bolt that goes into the nitty-gritty), but the end result is a practically flawless scroll experience.
So many mice, in fact, that trying to decide on a single size and style -- especially on a budget -- is much more complicated than scouring Reddit and Amazon's top lists to find an answer.Unless you know exactly what you're after and what grip you use, I recommend getting to a store to try some out before you buy.Our picks aren't definitive as we regularly test new mice and, again, there are so many out there with a slew of options for the perfect gaming experience, from customizable buttons to battery life to ergonomic design.If you think I've overlooked any other great sub-$50 gaming mice, let me know in the comments your personal preference for the best cheap gaming mouse.Also, if you need a new gaming keyboard, too, here are our current picks for less than $100.Plus, there are a bunch of preset profiles for games.
A new teardown of Logitech’s latest mouse offers a fascinating look at the “Magspeed” scroll wheel used in the MX Master 3.The teardown, which was done by the venture capital firm Bolt, also explores the myriad ergonomic and design changes Logitech made to its flagship mouse as the company continues to refine and iterate after 30 years in the business.The main focus of the teardown is the mouse’s scroll wheel, which Bolt describes as being a “magnetic marvel.” The wheels in MX Master series mice have always been able to switch between a step-by-step ratcheting scroll and free-spinning modes.The difference with its third-generation MX Master mouse is that rather than using a motor and a mechanical contact to achieve this effect, the mouse uses magnets that are energized and de-energized using small spikes of electricity.The scroll wheel then spins differently, depending on the state of the magnet inside.Bolt says there are numerous benefits to this new method.
Your middle-click mouse button—also known as your scroll wheel—can be an effective tab management tool in both Chrome and Firefox.https://boost2business.ca/many-things-can-middle-click-mouse/
Like most other Corsair mice, this one features a powerful, proprietary Pixart sensor, an attractive look with RGB accents, all backed up by the excellent Corsair iCUE software.But tick marks on a spec sheet don’t go far in the world of subjective peripheral use, so I spent some time getting to grips with the Night Sword to see how it holds up in both real world gaming and basic office tasks.Chunky comfort at a stretchThe Night Sword is not quite the biggest mouse I’ve ever used, but it’s far from the smallest.It’s designed with palm grippers in mind, so it has a bulbous shape which looms up in the middle and provides a comfortable grip, whether you’re using a palm or finger style hold.Claw works too, although it doesn’t feel as comfortable as the others and that places your finger tips even further from the additional buttons the Night Sword comes equipped with.
A customizable smartphone case prototype is bringing back physical buttons and scroll wheels at a time when manufacturers are looking to build devices with nothing more than touchscreens.Vidgets are mechanical widgets that provide smartphone owners with a more tactile experience, compared to taps and swipes on a touchscreen.The project is a collaboration between Snap researchers Karl Bayer and Shree Nayar, and Columbia University students Chang Xiao and Changxi Zheng.The smartphone case features several empty slots, in which modular components of physical buttons and scroll wheels may be inserted.It is also purely mechanical, as it does not connect to the smartphone through Bluetooth or a cable.Instead, the case relies on the sensitive gyroscope of devices to translate physical actions into input commands.
