Asus Delays Eee Keyboard Again

Asus recently demonstrated a revised version of the Asus Eee computer-in-a-keyboard. Asus has replaced the previous 5-inch resistive touchscreen with a capacitive version and will support gesture control features akin to Apple’s new Magic Mouse. The wireless receiver will not be internal as originally planned, and they have moved the antennae outside the keyboard hull. While testing the internal version, Asus discovered that the keyboard's metallic body "greatly" reduced the antennae's reception but because Asus liked the metallic look, the company decided to stick with aesthetics and make the wireless receiver external. The bad news is that Asus doesn't plan to ship till sometime early next year.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
