The Level 10 M Mouse is said to be the first in a line of Level 10 PC peripherals. The open design, the metal casing, the love-it-or-hate-it design, it’s all very reminiscent of the Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. mouse sans the gaming-specific additions like adjustable thumb rest and optional weights. Still, the Level 10 M Mouse is unique. A set screw can adjust the height. The top platform is perforated for passive hand cooling while the hollow design helps with air flow.
There’s no word when this mouse will hit the market or the target price. High-end gaming mice can cost well north of $100. With the Level 10 case as a pricing barometer, the Level 10 M Mouse could hit $200.
Sit at a desk all day long sweating over a red hot wireless keyboard? Then take a break, stand up and remember you have legs.
BreakTime is a simple utility that’s designed to help you remember to take breaks away from your computer. It never forgets a break, running in your dock and / or menu bar (or even in the background).
PaperPort Notes by Nuance Communications does a lot of stuff…
It does text, drawing and voice to text. Oh yeah and it’s free.
The folks from Nuance Communications, the provider of Dragon voice recognition, have released their free iPad notes app – PaperPort Notes. A notes app that has a little bit of something for everyone. The app is light enough to be happy with it if you where to only use one notes capture method while still offering all the options without complicated endless menus to go through.
PaperPort Notes has the concept of a pile of pages of paper, inside of grouped stacks. Each page can be treated as an individual enhanced page so you aren’t stuck with one note type through the whole group of pages.
So I bought OmniFocus a couple of months ago and played with for a few minutes. Since then it has sat there unused.
