Knowledge workers of the world, listen up! Logitech wants to solve your headphone problem. Actually, make that your headphones problem: The upcoming Logitech Wireless Zone headphones could replace the three types of headsets currently cluttering your desk in that oh-so-trendy open office.

Logitech’s pitch is that Zone Wireless will free you from juggling your omnipresent earbuds, the cushy noise-canceling headphones you brought from home, and that ugly headset your company’s IT department burdened you with.

AiPad Pro owners no longer have to pay $129 to get a high-quality stylus. The Apple Pencil 2 isn’t the only option any more.

iPad is a great educational tool, no matter the age of the student. But some children are too young for a keyboard. That’s where the Logitech Crayon comes in. It’s a digital pencil designed for students to write and draw on the 9.7-inch iPad released this spring.

Update (March 18, 2019): Apple introduced the iPad Air 3 and iPad mini 5, new tablets that also support the Crayon. This significantly expands the reach of this accessory.

Having a wireless charging pad on my nightstand means never having to fish around in the dark for a Lightning cable plugged into the wall. However, there’s a tradeoff: Switching to wireless charging also means I’ve awakened to a nearly drained iPhone more often than ever before.

Well, help is on the way for this admittedly first-world problem. The new Logitech Powered Wireless Charger eliminates the main drawback I’ve found when it comes to charging my iPhone wirelessly.
