Two New ‘Accessories’

    I was poking around the Microsoft store and came across two accessories I had not seen before.

    A bar that turns your Type/Touch Cover into a Bluetooth HID. Link

    And a Bluetooth Arc Touch Mouse. Link.


    The ‘Wireless Adaptor’ is a brilliant idea. But it is $20-$30 too expensive.
    But even though the mouse is lacking F/B buttons, I am considering picking one up. I love the concept, and every time I have handeled on on display, the arc was not broken. (Which speaks volumes about the build quality.) But I fear it will still have tracking issues that plague every BT mouse.

    I wonder if the Remix ‘Blade’ will work with the wireless adaptor.

    I couldn't do without the f/b capability. Do yourself a favor and get the Logitech T630.

    Same here. I use an Anywhere MX with my SRT. How well does the T630 work without Setpoint?

    Huh? I have Setpoint so I couldn't tell you how it works without.

    I just picked up the Arc Touch Mouse Surface and I think its great. If you travel a lot like I do the ability to fold the mouse flat and carry in your computer bag is a huge deal, in my opinion much more so than F/B buttons. consider that you can right click to get those commands easily so again dedicated buttons not such a big deal to me. The reason I posted this is not to argue the value of F/B buttons to others but to point out to some people based on their individual use may find value otherwise. So if you are a heavy traveler and find packing the right stuff a premium consider that this mouse is smaller than most mobile phones when packed! And yes even at the price they want......
