Microsoft's Mobile Mouse 4000 For Netbook Users
Microsoft asserts that it can get traction on surfaces such as granite, marble, carpet and unfinished wood, the latter of which astounds us the most. The unit is priced at under $40, which honestly sounds a bit steep considering that most netbooks can be had for under $300. A $40 accessory for a $300 machine? At least it'll work on your hairy legs, greasy airport armrest and neighbor's floor, right? The mouse connects to PCs via a tiny transceiver that plugs discretely into one's USB port, and if you wish, you can leave said dongle plugged right in. It's set to ship in August in teal blue, berry pink, lime green, graphite and white for $39.99.
