Microsoft to buy Logitech?

3 comments

Curse me kilts if that happens!

According to Reuters, rumours are circulating that Microsoft will launch a takeover bid for Logitech at 48 Francs ($43) per share, representing a premium of 38 per cent.

Such a move would leave Microsoft the largest peripherals manufacturer in the world.

I hope the brand and quality both remain intact post takeover (if any), cause Logitech’s totally unbeatable. Microsoft keyboards are well styled but lack the joy in typing smoothly, which a Logitech would provide.

But of course, nothing beats a TVS mechanical keyboard. Only if it had some multimedia keys on it :(

Some day, some day soon, I’ll get you Optimus Maximus. You’re all mine :twisted:

P.s. Just heard that MySQL is too gonna be bought by Sun Microsystems. Acquisitions, they not good.

For now, here is the Live coverage of Bill Gates’ final Keynote at CES from the people at Engadget.

Edit: Well its over now. Dead nonsense I should add. Guitar Hero? WTF. :P

The new Transcend T.sonic 650 music player

7 comments

A while ago I blogged about my purchase of a Transcend T.sonic 630 4 GB Music Player here.

Now Transcend has given it a complete looks overhaul and has released the newer Transcend T.sonic 650 players!

Here’s how they look: (Very delicious looking, and curvy compared to my 630!)

The Transcend T.sonic 650 Music Player

If you ask me, its just the same 630 in features, with a 610 style 2-Color OLED screen. All the other features as seen in this Press Release by Transcend are exactly the same as the T.sonic 630 except an additional memory for 10 FM stations. (The 630 has 10 slots, the 650 has 20)

Comes only in 2 GB (The White one) and 4 GB (The Black one) variants.
