I’ve had a chance to try out the Blue Microphones Eyeball, and it’s a pretty good webcam. Blue Microphones has just recently announced the Eyeball 2.0. It has the same basic design as its predecessor with a retractable camera lens and big microphone, but includes a higher-quality lens and 2-megapixel camera. It is available now for $79.99, but you can get it at $56 from Amazon.

Dell‘s new Latitude Z has a few very features, with the highlight being a wireless charging station. You just place the notebook on there, and it charges without you actually connecting any plugs or wires.
In addition to this wireless charging, the user also has the option of wireless docking to an accompanying monitor.
Another nice touch is the “instant on” feature, a sliding touch control not visible in the photo. These controls can be customized by the user.
Of course, all this will cost you. The Latitude Z retails for $1,999. The wireless charging station and the docking station are $199 each.
Wacom has put out a lot of great Bamboo tablet interfaces in the past, and they have just recently unveiled a new series that support multitouch. This means that the user can use his or her fingers for multitouch gestures, along with the stylus.
This multitouch capacity has been put on five different products with varying prices. The Bamboo Touch and Bamboo Pen are only $69, while the Bamboo fun has all the features for $199.

Clearly, revealing the Courier tablet prototype was not enough for Microsoft, as they have topped themselves once again. This time, the company produced their skinniest keyboard to date, and this Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 is totally wireless.
There is no Bluetooth dongle included, so make sure your computer has Bluetooth built-in before making the purchase. The keyboard is powered by 3 AAA batteries, while the numeric keypad takes just one AAA. Both will be available in October, $90 for the combo, and $45 for just the number pad, if that’s all you want.

Sony Ericsson has been promising something new with their new MH907 earphones, but we suppose their claim of “the way you listen to music changes forever” is a tad too bragadocious.
The SensMe technology is somewhat impressive, though. You put the phones in your ear, and it plays. Just take one of them out, and your audio automatically pauses. Calls can be taken in the same manner.
These earphones come in chrome and yellow/white for about $55. Of course, you will need a Sony Ericsson phone with a “Fast port” connector to use “the first stereo headphones that sense you.” There is a YouTube video below with freaky animation if you want to see how it works.

Not being content at being the world’s biggest bookstore or having the lion’s share of the reader market, Amazon has just recently announced their line of audio/video and computer cables, launched under the AmazonBasics brand. Right now, the Amazon cable line will include HDMI, USB, and FireWire cables, CD-Rs, DVR+R, DVD-R, networking cables and other various home theater cables.
The prices here are similar to what you’d find on Monoprice, so you know they’re affordable. If they are quality products, then Amazon could easily make a killing here. You can check out the full AmazonBasics line now.

Microsoft is jumping on that whole thin-is-in bandwagon with the Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000. As the name implies, this is a Bluetooth-only device, powered by AAA batteries. The keyboard slopes downward, making the front event thinner. There’s also a curved keyboard layout, which Microsoft refers to as Comfort Curve. The keyboard is $89.95, and the numeric keypad is an extra $44.95. You’ll see these on store shelves in October.
