Microsoft introduced Windows 8 special hardware

The mouse was named Wedge Touch Mouse (USD $69.95). The novelty of this gadget is that has touch sector whit 4 directions of scrolling.

Microsoft is taking advantage of its latest release, the operating system Windows 8, which as we now has some visual and operative differences; and now they launched special hardware that in theory will allow better interaction whit it; we are talking about keyboards, mouse and screen designed for improve the performance of “Metro�.

The main benefice of the Parkour is only mental “If you practice Parkour,

nothing is too big for you, you can solve problems and take decision quickly in just seconds” Affirms Juan David.

Parkour training focuses on... safety, longevity, personal responsibility, and self-improvement. It discourages reckless behavior, showing off, and dangerous stunts.
