Logitech Transforms Presentations With Spotlight: Highlight, Magnify and More

TEDs New Preferred Remote, Spotlight Can Help You Become a More Confident Presenter

LAUSANNE, Switzerland and NEWARK, Calif. Feb. 1, 2017 Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced a complete reinvention of presentation control with the Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote. Unlike the traditional slide clicker or laser pointer of the past, Spotlight is designed to help you become a more confident presenter. Spotlight is an advanced tool that goes well beyond laser pointing, and enables you to highlight and magnify on-screen content in an engaging and powerful way so you can better underscore your point.

Presentations are nerve-wracking, said Marcel Stolk, senior vice president of the Creativity and Productivity business group at Logitech. For most, the main stumbling block is a lack of confidence we just get nervous. Spotlight is easier to use and, most importantly, gives you new ways to engage your audience versus a hard-to-see laser pointer.

Spotlight is a new standard in presentation control. It allows you to effortlessly navigate slides and interact with on-screen content from up to 100 feet away. With the advanced pointer system you can highlight and magnify points on your slide in pixel-perfect detail, so the audience stays engaged throughout your talk. Spotlight also has mouse-like cursor control to play videos and open links, and unlike a laser, the cursor and highlights are visible to both a live audience and those on a video conference.

Spotlight pairs with a powerful app so you can set the stage even before your presentation begins. In the app you can toggle pointer mode, set timed vibration alerts or activate more advanced functions like volume control with hand gestures. Whats more, the app will be updated with additional features over time, so youll always have access to the latest in presentation functionality with Spotlight.

We know how important reliable technology is for helping speakers feel confident on stage, said Lisa Choi Owens, head of global partnerships at TED. Using technologies like Logitech Spotlight allows our speakers to focus on their talks, and deliver ideas worth spreading.

Logitech Spotlight also connects instantly via USB receiver or Bluetooth Smart technology. It is plug-and-play on most devices and compatible with all popular presentation apps. Plus, it features smart recharging one minute of charge gives three hours of use so you will never be caught off guard.

Logitech and TED plan to launch a worldwide search for aspiring communicators who will be invited to participate in an exclusive Spotlight Presentation Academy at the TED Theater in New York. Armed with a Spotlight presentation remote, attendees will have the opportunity to work with industry experts to enhance their presentation skills. Through this program, the two companies aim to inspire and support communities of presenters and idea-sharers worldwide. More details regarding the search will be announced in the coming weeks.

Availability

Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote is available today from Logitech and Apple for a suggested retail price of $129.99, and will be available from additional retailers worldwide in March.

NEWARK, Calif. — Nov. 11, 2015 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) unveiled its first accessories designed in collaboration with Apple to perfectly complement the aesthetics and features of the new iPad Pro™: the Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case with Smart Connector and the Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand. The Logi CREATE Keyboard Case is the first third-party keyboard on the market to leverage Apple’s new Smart Connector™, eliminating the need to power on, connect or charge the keyboard.

Tweet now: Logitech unveils its first cases designed for the new #iPadPro. Make more possible. Get more done. http://blog.logitech.com/?p=24184

“The iPad Pro coupled with iOS 9 opens new ways to create, work and play on the tablet,” said Michele Hermann, vice president of mobility at Logitech. “With this in mind, we worked closely with Apple to design the Logi CREATE, and unleash even more possibilities. The result is a functional yet beautiful case, and the best iPad keyboard we’ve ever created. From compatibility with the Apple Smart Connector to the color and finish of the keyboard, every detail was meticulously crafted to perfectly complement the iPad Pro.”

Logi CREATE Any-Angle Case_Hinge RedBoth Logi CREATE products offer thin and light front and back protection, and the tightly-woven premium fabric resists accidental bumps, scratches and spills. Highlights of the cases include:

The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case with Smart Connector

The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is designed to work exclusively with Apple’s new Smart Connector for seamless communication between the iPad Pro and the keyboard. Through leveraging the Smart Connector, the Logi CREATE keyboard automatically powers on and securely connects with the iPad Pro when placed in the typing position – no Bluetooth® pairing needed. And because the keyboard is powered by the iPad Pro, you never have to think about charging your keyboard again.

The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is built for productivity. The keyboard features full-size

19 mm keys, adjustable backlighting and an intuitive layout, helping you take full advantage of the iPad Pro’s expansive workspace and new iOS® 9 features. The iOS shortcut keys also put the power of your favorite apps at your fingertips – you can activate search and media controls without ever leaving the keyboard. The case provides two viewing angles, so you can make the most of the iPad Pro’s big, beautiful screen whether you’re posting an update, watching videos, or using the Apple Pencil to take notes. The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is available for a suggested retail price of $149.99.

The Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand

The Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand adjusts to whatever adventure comes your way. The case’s flexible stand has a hidden hinge that firmly holds your iPad Pro in the perfect viewing angle within a 60-degree range. Place the iPad Pro upright in the stand for watching video in comfort or nearly flat for sketching with the Apple Pencil – there’s an angle for nearly every activity or work setup. The Logi CREATE protects the front and back of your iPad Pro without adding unnecessary bulk or weight. The Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand is available for a suggested retail price of $79.99.

The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case and the Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand are available in a variety of colors including black, red or blue.

Macworld/ iWorld 2013- Ashton and Josh on Jobs Movie

by on February 4th, 2013

Gad_Kutcher

I had the unique opportunity to attend the interview at Macworld with Ashton and Josh on the Jobs movie for cutegeek coming soon to theaters in April.

What I loved about the interview is that Ashton did his homework on Steve Jobs plus he is an engineer so he had a good understanding of the character Steve Jobs. The poor guy even went on the all Fruitarian diet that was a staple in Job’s diet and ended up sick in the hospital.

Josh Gad was hilarious and a comedian on stage for 9:00am; I loved it. I also found it funny Woz’s complaint to Josh on the movie was on his wardrobe…really of all things?

Regardless most think Ashton was a wrong fit for this movie but he does have a good understanding of technology…for an actor that is.

Below is the trailer…

When phones become teething toys

by on November 20th, 2011

While we all want the children in our lives to eat apples – preferibly an apple a day, to keep the doctor away…having them chew away at our apple products just isn’t what we had in mind.

My 5 month old god-daughter – aka Julianne – the iPhone 4Slobber – is an avid lover of all apple products – her favorite being her mommy and daddy’s iPhone.  While this picture is extremely cute, and we are all patiently awaiting the arrival of her adorable teeth, having to speak into a drooled phone just isn’t cool.

Being the tech collector that I am, I was able to donate an old flip phone to the cause, but like many of us know, today’s babies are smart. They are so smart they want ‘smart’ phones – so I’m sorry Fisher Price – you just won’t cut it with my precious Julianne because she knows her divalicious mommy will not sport a highlighter yellow colored device. Right Glo?

Don’t worry, I found a solution on Amazon.com!
