Yesterday I bought another mouse... the previous one started to have some trouble with the left button... too many clicks I suppose...
So I had a thought... can a simple desk item, a 25$ device made in China with few pieces of plastic, metal and rubber tell a story?
Maybe yes... if the computer graphics is your greatest passion...

I'm still using the middle-ish mice. LOL And if I recall, my first computer, a Tandy TX1000 didn't even have a mouse or HD for that matter. LOL

Thanks for posting this. :-)
