V7 3-Button Laser Gaming Mouse

Wow, are you sure that’s a laser gaming mouse at that price? I mean, I’m used to seeing gaming mice for $50, $60 even $70, not for $19.99, Can it really be true? Or, is this just a late April fool’s gag that the Chief Gopher is pulling on me? Oh well, at least I get to check it out.
You know the best thing about being a product review gopher? You get paid to play! Now, is that cool, or what? And since this is a gaming mouse, I’ll just have to try it on some games. Sounds like I need to check it out real thoroughly, he he he.

Sony VAIO Bluetooth Laser Mouse

Hmmm, a Bluetooth laser mouse with a sliding aluminum cover; it’s obviously got something it’s trying to hide. Maybe it’s a secret compartment for spies to hide their microfiche. Or, maybe the buttons actually control the detonation of a secret, hidden nuclear device. Darn, where’s James Bond when I need him? Oh, never mind, it’s just the on/off switch for the mouse. Wow, really had me going there for a minute.

Neither is this mouse, wow, I really like the control it gives me.

Gigaworks Wireless Speakers

Okay, I think the Chief Gopher was trying to pull a fast one on me with these speakers. He told me they were Bluetooth speakers; so, being the trusting gopher I am, I tried to get them to link up with my laptop. You know what? They wouldn’t work. Can you believe that? Now, I realize that not everything that’s Bluetooth links up easily, but these; geez.

Oh, oops… guess what? They’re not Bluetooth. Creative has got their own proprietary wireless system that way outperforms Bluetooth, called X-Fi. These Creative GigaWorks speakers are designed to work with that.

Tenqa Wireless Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Have you noticed how everything’s going wireless these days? Why, I was visiting a geek I do business with from time to time, and it looked like his computer was just sitting on his desk for show. The only wire I saw for anything was the power cord. When I asked him about it, he said everything was wireless. Wow, I guess things have changed while I’ve been off hibernating.

Well, here’s another wireless gadget to throw in your bag; wireless speakers for all your Bluetooth gear. It’s actually pretty cool not having to hook things up, once you get used to it.

JBL Creature II Speaker System

Gopher: What is it?
Zach: Does it eat gophers?
Gopher: I don’t think so.
Greg: Looks pretty dangerous to me. You touch it first.
Gopher: Me, why me?
Greg & Zach together: Because you’re dad!
Okay, so I touched it, and you know what? It didn’t bite, instead music started coming out of it. Then I realized that these crazy looking creatures weren’t aliens which had come to invade us, they’re JBL desktop speakers.
