Live Your Best Wireless Life

We’ve been using various keyboards and computer mice for years — pretty much our entire lives in fact. I do not know about you, but I am fed up of wires. It’s time to go wireless. Wireless technology provides people more freedom to move freely and utilize space in the best possible way. Without wires, we can organize everything at our home or office better. Working in an environment without any stress can increase our overall productivity. If we sit in front of the computer, we may suffer from headaches and pain in our necks, backs, shoulders and arms. However, if we go wireless, we can sit anywhere we like — even our sofa! — and get work down. It’s tie to make the switch. Turns out, wireless accessories are not even all that expensive.

As you may have noticed, the wireless mouse is becoming more and more popular in recent years. It offers more convenience and flexibility over wired ones. Compared to the corded mouse, we can use the wireless mouse at a larger range and never need to worry about the cords getting tangled up. A wireless mouse offers greater portability, which means we can pack it along with our laptop without the hassle of wires. Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse can be used on any surface, even glass, without a mouse pad. The mouse pad has become a thing of the past with the development of infrared technology.

My favorite feature of this Logitech mouse is its ability to control up to three computers with just one flow-enabled mouse. Research indicates that adding a second monitor improves productivity greatly because dual-screen display allow us to switch between applications faster, segment our tasks and view documents side-by-side. With Logitech Easy-Switch technology, the mouse can pair with up to three devices and switch between them with the touch of a button. We can transfer text, images, and files between our computers effortlessly. Unlike other wireless mice, the rechargeable Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse does not rely on battery power. In fact, it can be used for an entire day after just 3 minutes of charging. A full charge can last over 70 days.

A cordless keyboard is an excellent add-on to our computer setup because we can place it in anywhere we want in the room or office. A wireless keyboard operates much the same as its wired counterpart, except it is operated by infrared radiations and signals. The wireless keyboard is free to move a greater distance and has a faster response time. Wireless keyboards are designed to keep our space uncluttered. Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard is a portable and useful accessory for people such as programmers who use computers for long periods of time.

Some wireless keyboards are not universal, which means they only work with certain models. Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard is compatible with nearly all models and devices such as Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Android, iPad, iPhone and Apple TV. As long as the devices are Bluetooth-enabled and support external keyboards with HID profile. Similar to the Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse, this keyboard can also connect up to three devices simultaneously and switch between them easily. All you need to do in order to type and switch between 3 devices is to click on any of the three yellow buttons on the upper-left corner of the keyboard. The combination of Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse and Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard creates a central workstation for multiple computers. We can type, navigate, copy and paste between computers in one fluid workflow. Even though this is a battery-operated device, the battery life is two years. For all intents and purposes, it might as well be powered by magic.

Why MKBHD Doesn’t Like The RAZR

Marques Brownlee, aka YouTube’s MKBHD, has a job most of us would kill for. He hobnobs with the world’s plutocrats, he gets a first-hand look at cutting-edge products, and pretty much every piece of tech he owns he gets for free.

However, maybe the job isn’t as easy as it looks. Sometimes a company may send him a $1500 product free of charge, but the product is one that he does not particularly care for. It is still his duty to share this take with his millions of fans on the Internet.

This is the case with the new Foldable Moto RAZR, which has a foldable screen and is meant to resemble the original Motorola RAZR from two decades ago. Unlike many other tech reviewers, MKBHD is not a fan of the new RAZR. He admits that this may be because he lacks the nostalgia that is this phone’s sole raison d’etre. (Even for tech reviewers, Brownlee is on the younger side, and it is entirely possible that he never owned a Motorola RAZR back in its initial run).

His main complaint, related to the aforementioned absence of nostalgia, is with the phone’s shape. He finds it unnecessary to fold a phone with a 6.2-inch screen, since that size phone would already fit into your pocket without being folded in half. He would rather a phone with a foldable screen to be double the size.

As Brownlee puts it, he is unsure if this “form factor is even a good idea to begin with.” What do you think? Is he right? Let us know in the comments.

Do You Really Need An AI-Powered Toothbrush?

Never doubt the power of technology to make simple things complicated. As we examine trends likely to define the year 2020 in tech, a few commonalities stand out to us. One such indicator points to an upcoming boom in “AI-powered toothbrushes.” Out with your regular old electric toothbrush and in with its “machine learning” successor. Why anyone needs such a thing remains to be seen.

Multiple brands are attempting to either create or co-opt this advancement in oral hygiene technology. At CES in Las Vegas earlier this month, Oral-B made the biggest splash. Turns out Oral-B already makes an AI-powered toothbrush, called the Genius X, which hit the market in late 2019. In Vegas, Oral-B unveiled a new model, the iO, which claims to improve the mapping of the interior your mouth, so it can give you a numerical answer to the question of what areas you are skimping on. Like the Genius X before it, Oral-B’s iO has received fawning coverage by tech bloggers. Still, we can’t imagine spending upward of $200 for a toothbrush, since you can get a toothbrush at CVS for all of $4 (and even an electric one on Amazon for about $50).

Oral hygiene is important, and it is almost certainly true that most of us do not do a good enough job taking care of our teeth and gums. But if I had to venture a guess, I’d say the people most likely to pay $200 for a toothbrush are the ones who do already care about their oral health, making them the least likely to need such a product. This in turn makes the iO and other AI advancements in the industry naught more than a gimmick. You don’t need an AI toothbrush any more than you need Charmin’s new toilet paper robot.

Whether you get Oral-B’s new iO toothbrush when it is released later this year depends on if you have $200 burning a hole in your pocket. If you do, then go for it; it’s not as if it is going to make your brushing experience any worse. Just do not expect some sort of savior in toothbrush form. Like a dollar store toothbrush, an AI-powered toothbrush requires you to use it and use it right. At the end of the day, that is up to you and you alone.

WATCH: Unbox Therapy Gets A Sneak Peak Of The Motorola Razr

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même. Here we are, in the year 2020, and the cutting edge piece of phone technology is a Motorola Razr. Like the one you probably owned as a much younger person, this new Motorola Razr is a flip phone that folds open and closed. However, unlike the original, the screen itself is now foldable, bringing the old Razr model up-to-date as a modern smartphone.

The Motorola Razr is not available for purchase yet, but some influencers have already got their hands on one. For example, take a look at Lew’s experience with the new phone over at Unbox Therapy:

As you can see, the big takeaway from the new Motorola Razr is just how slender it is. Lew is amazed at how such a little device can be so powerful and hold so much information. As he says at the video’s conclusion, this is “the future in your pocket.”

If you are thinking about getting the new Motorola Razr when it hits the shelves, there are a few things you need to know. For one, at least to start, the phone will be Verizon-exclusive in the United States. Oh, and perhaps most importantly, it will set you back $1,500. If that seems like a lot, you must remember that it’s main competitor in the foldable screen space, the Samsung Galaxy Fold, goes for nearly $2,000. The Huawei Mate X, for it’s part, is not even available in America.
