  • Review: Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000

    Short Version: As ergonomic mice go, Microsoft’s wireless offering provides plenty of relief from repetitive stress injuries without deviating too far from the familiar form factor found in standard mice. And with an MSRP of $80 (and available for even cheaper online), it’s priced competitively with other specialty mice. Read More

  • How much would you pay for this mouse? $1200? No? Okay, don't read this then


    Of all the people on Earth, I’m probably at least in the top 100 of “most mice handled.” Not a particularly prestigious list to be on, but I’ll take what I can get. And I’m probably one of the biggest proponents of splurging on a good mouse. Mamba, G500, Mighty Mouse (if it’s any good)… just go for it, you use this thing for hours in a row and it might… Read More

  • Review: Logitech G500 gaming mouse


    Short version: A nearly faultless wired mouse, more than suitable for everyday tasks or gaming. Fans of the distinctive MX series shape won’t be disappointed. Although I’ve been taking my time getting used to this mouse, this is a pretty straightforward review. Reason being that Logitech is an established and reliable brand for mice so we can skip the foreplay. You know as well as… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Razer Mamba for $85 shipped

    My major issue with the Mamba (once the other issues were sorted out) was the price. $130 MSRP was just too much to give it a solid “buy” rating. But for a limited time, you can get one for $55 off the cover price — $85 total to be precise, which makes it a much better deal. Read More

  • Microsoft's insane new multi-touch mice demoed on video

    The other day, I went on a short tour of some of Microsoft’s Labs, where they do everything from rapid prototypes of new products to acoustic testing in anechoic chambers. Most of my time was spent in the Applied Sciences group’s labs, where they are working on some seriously interesting devices. And they’re not just into mice; in fact, the lab’s specialty seemed to… Read More

  • Cool $40 HTPC remote features trackpad, QWERTY keypad

    Here’s what you get when you take a BlackBerry and replace the screen with a trackpad – a nice remote control for an HTPC. It’s compatible with Windows, Linux, and Mac and uses wireless RF signals to communicate with an included USB receiver. Read More

  • This mouse is made from a sheep skull

    Ah, wonderful — skulls of dead animals used as interface devices for personal computers. My favorite! This time, we have the skull of a poor, dead sheep, all steampunked up and ready for action. Read More

  • Logitech's new mice track on just about anything

    Logitech’s newly announced mice, the Performance MX and Anywhere MX, make use of a brand new tracking technology that allows them to be used even on clear glass. Now, I had this same thought when Microsoft unveiled its Bluetrack mice: who uses their mouse on glass, or marble? I think the cases where this technology can come into play are extremely rare. I’m sure the… Read More

  • Mouse Blisters: Adhesive motorcycle grips for your mouse (not blisters)

    Please observe the unfortunately-named Mouse Blisters, an idea that may actually work to relieve strain in your oft-used mousing hand. And if it doesn’t work, you’re only out nine bucks. Read More
