DisplayLink makes video chips that let you connect an LCD to your PC via USB, which is highly convenient for adding a second display. Even more convenient? Going wireless.

The "Personal Security Mouse," as we reported earlier this year, is equipped to read fingerprints to prevent unauthorized mousage. What we just learned in a press release announcing its shipment, however, is that it another feature that every germaphobe can appreciate: "The surface," it says, "is covered … Read more
