Aside from the Apple Pencil, the Logitech Crayon stylus is the only third-party stylus officially approved by Apple. The stylus was announced at Apple’s iPad education event earlier this year. At launch, the Logitech Crayon stylus was sold only to schools. Now however, anyone can buy one. Logitech announced today it will sell the Crayon through its website, as well as Apple Stores. For education customers the price was US$49.99, but for the general public the price has been increased to US$69.99. There’s a caveat though: The stylus is only compatible with the education iPad (sixth-gen), not the iPad Pro or older models. The Crayon charges with a built-in Lightning port and a single charge lasts about seven hours.
Logitech is expanding its foothold in the audio market again by purchasing microphone and audio gear maker Blue in a US$117 million deal.

Logitech announced BRIO earlier this month. I’ve been researching webcams for a video/podcast I’m developing with John “The Devil’s Advocate” Kheit, which led me to the Brio. It’s a 4K webcam aimed specifically at YouTubers and other vloggers, with support for multiple resolutions: 4K (Ultra HD) at 30 fps, 1080p (Full HD) at 30 or 60 fps, and 720p (HD) at 30 or 60 fps. BRIO also features a 5X digital zoom and a lightning feature Logitech calls “RightLight 3 with HDR.” On the Windows side (but not Mac), it supports Microsoft’s Windows Hello facial recognition technology. Logitech is sending me one for review, and I’ll be using on Pop.0 with John Kheit when we launch early in March. BRIO is scheduled to ship in March, and it retails for US$199/€239. It’s up on Amazon for pre-order now.
