If you live in a PC/Mac home, IOGear’s Auto Sharing Switch allows two of them to share one USB device or printer. The LED lets you know which computer has the access and by sending a printing task, the switch automatically changes it for you. Because it is bus powered, the GUB211 needs no external power supply. The USB 1.1/2.0 device is compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista 32-/64-bit and Mac OS X 10.3.9 or greater and is available for $27.95.
IOGEAR’s flash drive fits into your wallet, pocket, or purse. At a size of only 4.80 x 0.118 x 6.25-inches, it holds up to 4GB of music, movies, images, or other important data. The metallic blue drive is plug ‘n play with USB 1.1 and 2.0 functionality with a transfer speed of up to 480 Mbps, and will work with Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS X 10.3 or later, and Unix. The Wallet Drive is available for $56.99 on Amazon. Just don’t slide it into your ATM by mistake.

We talk to IOGEAR about their soon-to-be-released GHDMIAS2 HDMI switcher. What’s so special about it? It automatically senses which device is sending a video signal, and therefore automatically switches to that signal so that you don’t have to reach for the remote. It also has a manual override button in case you want to switch to the other input on your own. Lastly, it’s an HDMI 1.3 switcher and supports 1080p, so you know that you will be getting the latest goodness. This one will be available at the end of the first quarter 2007 for $149.99 USD. Good enough for us!

Keith Renty of IOGEAR gives us the low down on their Nano Shield technology. This coating lasts for a couple of years and kills all bacteria on your keyboard or mouse. This is aimed at the healthcare and education industry - but if you are a hypochondriac, it works for you as well.
EDIT: See our video featuring the IOGear Nano Shield Germ-Free technology.
It’s a clean freak’s dream. IOGears just released its ergonomic Laser Mouse, which is coated with a Titanium dioxide and Silver nano-particle compound. This deactivates up to 90% of nasty germs to prevent their propagation on the mouse’s surface. Laser Mouse uses VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser), with the claim that it provides 30 times more tracking power than an optical sensor.
Available in wireless (with a 6-foot range), plug-in, and travel models, you won’t have to worry about germs at work either. Backed by a 3-year limited warranty, Laser Mouse is available for $39.95 and uses two AAA batteries (not included.)
