March 24th, 2012

Logitech has a wide range of hardware that also tends to be very popular.

So what happened if you have more than one wireless device or one wireless device that you want to connect to multiple other devices? (All Logitech’s)

One of its technology that helped with connecting its wireless devices is called the Unifying Technology.

Look for this special logo. Some mice that are wireless, but not with this logo:


For example, I have one of these m325.

It has a USB connector, when you plug into a laptop and turn on the mouse, it will just automatically get connected/paired.

The Logitech Revue™ With Google TV™ set-top box is special that it already has a connector built it, so you can pair it with other Logitech Unifying compatible device.

I could pair my mouse to my laptop, and then pair it with the Logitech Revue.

However, getting back to the laptop might be a problem after pairing with the Revue, even if you have unpaired it with the Revue.

Fret not, Logitech Unifying software will help to manage the pairing on computers by installing its management software.

Google TV making a comeback?

November 7th, 2011

Google TV, supposedly the Google product that will revolutionize your home entertainment particularly the television didn’t quite live up to its expectation.
Launched with much fanfare during the Google IO 2010, the Google TV somehow failed to gain traction, probably due to its price at the range of $200 to $250.

However, the Google TV is now set for a comeback via version 2.0.

The Internet search engine unveiled a revamped version of its Google TV service and announced plans to create about one hundred online “channels” of original video programming for its YouTube website, in separate announcements on Friday.

So Google got a few celebrities to stream videos on its YouTube service and then by linking it to the Google TV, this will allow more viewable “internet channels” on the Google TV.

On the other hand, there were news that the software inside Google TV is set for Honeycomb, which is the Android version of 3.1 after a beta version was made for update.

Make no mistake, the Google TV will be version 2.0 although the software could be Android 3.1.

With all the services and software ready, the remaining factor will be the price of the Google TV hardware.
The price has been reduced and is now available at $89.95 refurbished, from Buy.com or $99.99 from Amazon.com.

Could this be the time to revisit Google TV?
