Apple Battery Charger

Do you go through too many one-use batteries like I did? Do you have a use for 6 AA batteries?

The Apple Battery Charger will not only help the environment but it will also save you money.

I ordered the Apple Battery Charger.

[from Apple.ca]

Fully loaded. And then some.

Each Apple Battery Charger comes with six high-performance AA NiMH batteries. Unlike many other reusable batteries, these batteries have an incredibly long service life — up to 10 years.2 Which means you can finally break the cycle of buying and disposing of those single-use alkaline batteries. The batteries that come with the Apple Battery Charger kit also have an extraordinarily low self-discharge rate. Even after a year of sitting in a drawer, they still retain 80 percent of their original charge.3That way you always have backup power when you need it.

COD-Black Ops

So Call of Duty Black Ops is set to release on the ninth of November. Lots of people are anticipating this game.  I’ve been in a lot of forums and everybody is really excited about all the cool new weapons.  Also the prestige edition for all you hardcore gamers comes with a lot off  cool stuff but on top of a medallion, a xbox live avatar outfit and four multiplayer co-op maps there will be a remote controlled ‘spy car’ that has a camera equipped that sends colour video and audio to the operator.  And the pervs will run wild.  But the prestige edition is a lot of money and is probably not worth it.  And the Hardened edition has everything except the spy car bundled. That’s all for now,

R.I.P. Microsoft Arc Mouse

Why I re-boxed the Microsoft Arc Mouse

Last week I went out and purchased the Microsoft Arc Mouse.

I used the wireless USB mouse until a few days ago when I couldn’t put up with the what seems to be broken scroll wheel. When I scroll upwards quicker then one line at a time, it will bring me up two lines then down one, up three, down two, etc. It seems to scroll up differently every time I want to scroll.

Other then this problem which could just be a hardware defect in this single mouse, I like the Arc mouse. It folds great, the adapter is a good size, no connection issues, etc.

I have decided to return the Microsoft mouse back to the store it came from. When I first thought about returning it, I thought I would just get a new one. Today, I decided to just get my $34* back and maybe put it towards some other new gadget.

At least I got the feel for the Arc mouse and know that it is an option for me or anyone else looking for a compact wireless USB mouse.

On Friday Aug. 13th – 9pm* we said R.I.P. as I re-boxed the MS Arc Mouse live on camera at http://live.techzany.com
