It can be use within 15m of range and it was technically designed for home theatre, presentations and etc. You can purchase Brando Keymouse II with a price of only $59, not too pricey for a cool gadget.
DosPara has announced their powerful gaming desktop PC called Prime A Galleria AX. Honestly, it’s my first time to see Dospara’s technology and their company name really sounds new to me. Maybe because it’s been a long time since I’ve updated my blog and read about the latest stuff about technology. The Prime A Galleria AX is powered by a 2.90GHz AMD A8-3850 quadcore processor, 4GB DDR3 memory, AMD Radeon HD 6550D graphics card. Other specification includes 1TB of HDD, AMD A75 integrated chipsets and a DVD Super Multi Drive. Dospara’s Prime A Galleria AX has a pre-installed Windows 7 Home Edition 64-bit operating system and sells for $690.
Brando has announced their latest gadget which is a USB card reader with encryption feature. This card reader will allow you to secure your important files by encrypting the data stored and will require the user to input his/her password. The USB Encryption Card Reader is compatible with SD, SDHC and MMC. It has separate sections (private and public) for your portable storage device. Every time you save/copy a file in the protected area it would ask for a password and the only way to retrieve the data you have stored is through the use of this card reader because the card reader itself is the one that encrypts the data, thus also it is the one responsible for the decryption of your files. You can buy this gadget for $23 a pop.
