The former describes an ultra low power computer mouse with an optical tracking engine and an inertial tracking engine that cooperate to provide velocity data to a computing device. The latter invention relates to the automatic repositioning and/or resizing of utility windows in response to actions that affect the view or content of the windows on a display.
