Logitech today announced two new mice that can be used almost anywhere, even on clear glass.The glass must be at least 4 millimeters thick, but I'd imagine it would be a little stressful to be computing on a table where the glass top was thinner, wondering if you're going to press too hard and bring the entire tabletop crashing to the ground in a pile of glass shards.The Logitech Performance Mouse MX and the Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX use Darkfield Laser Tracking to achieve their goals and are supposed to be useful on even high-gloss surfaces that most mice are useless on.The mice are wireless, with a teensy receiver (about the size of a nickel) that stays in your computer.Other details:•...

Well, the weekend may be just around the corner, but there's a lot of folks cranking out the reviews before it starts.  There is a ton of stuff to go through today, so let's get down to business!
