Logitech

Logitech's Bluetooth cordless mobile phone headset, due for release in mid-November, is generating enormous interest, according to the manufacturer. Its battery allows 7 hours of talk time and 200-odd hours of standby. The price has yet to be fixed but Logitech says it will be in the low-$200s. The other device spreading like wildfire throughout offices is the Cordless Presenter, a Bluetooth presentation device, which retails for $499. It comes with a USB connector.

Both products are distributed by Tech Pacific (1300 651 124) and BJE Enterprises (02 8850 1000).

ThermalTake

The Volcano 9 CPU cooler from ThermalTake is specifically designed for all the overclockers out there. Measuring 80x80x102.3mm, it's innovative and practical. This is the first time a CPU cooler has been produced with three functions in one full-speed 4800rpm; thermostat control with automatic gradual speed adjustment (1300rpm at 20ºC; 4800rpm at 55ºC) so the fan speed increases when the CPU gets hotter; and adjustable manual fan speed control from 1300rpm to 4800rpm so the fan speed can be reduced manually if the noise level is too high. Featuring a copper base and distinguishing orange colour, the Volcano 9 also comes with a three-point fixing clip for exceptional cooler balance.

It retails for $45 and is available from Anyware Computer Accessories.
