Every electronic product you buy have wire. These wires should be connected to a power source or to some slots to make it work. You have to accept that more wires make the gadget ugly. Some time its not extendable, wire may become fault and due to some new improvement in technology the product may become outdated and unusable. How to cut the crap, I mean the wire. In the series I will give you some important gadgets in wireless technology that will cut the wire and make your life wireless and easy.
What to write in the first series, is my big question? At last, my hand made a decision to write about wireless keyboard and mouse. The reason for writing about wireless mouse and keyboard is so simple, start with a thing that am using now and often. Ok, let us see some wireless keyboard and mouse combo that will come in your budget.

DPI is known as dots per inch, the abbreviation itself says that the number of steps a mouse will recognize when moved one inch. Higher the DPI faster the mouse.
