It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and usually, there are lots of consumer electronics companies that introduce pink products in order to help raise money for the cause. This year, Microsoft
is getting things started early with their new special edition mouse, a pink one in which 10% of the purchase price goes to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
It's a Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000, and the pink on this one actually isn't bright or glaring. It's a soft, subtle hue, and the mouse itself uses BlueTrack technology (for tracking on nearly any surface), a Plug & Go Nano Receiver, 2.4GHz wireless technology, a 10 month battery life and a scroll wheel. It's $39.95, and $4 per product sold will go to the cure. The best news is that Microsoft is making a minimum donation of $200,000 either way, so good on them.
