PRODUCT REVIEWS column presents a very favorable review of a family
of touchpads and a keyboard from Cirque Corp. of Salt Lake City, UT
(888). Notes that they work with any standard mouse driver, IBM
PC-compatible desktop, laptop, notebook, or subnotebook computer
with an available serial or PS/2 port and Microsoft Windows. Says
that this family of products include the touchpads: the Easy Cat
($40), the Smart Cat ($60), and the Cruise Cat ($110) and the
keyboard, the Smooth Cat ($80). Notes that the Easy Cat offers all
of the functions of a standard mouse in 80 percent less desk space
than the typical mouse pad; the Smart Cat offers all of the Easy Cat
features and adds a scroll and zoom function; the Cruise Cat adds
one-touch launching for e-mail, Web browsers, and CD players, along
with a Gestures feature; and the Smooth Cat offers an ergonomic
design, a mouse key, and touchpad. Rated all five out of five.
Includes two photos and one scorecard.
