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...
