New Bluetooth mice

Microsoft has introduced two new wireless notebook mice -- the Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 and the Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 7000. The former requires no transceiver or extensive setup process and uses a high definition laser. It operates on the 2.4GHz Bluetooth spectrum, is ambidextrous and comes with a carrying case. The mouse also features various power features like a battery life indicator on the unit, an on/off button and three-plus months of battery life. The Notebook Laser Mouse 7000 offers similar functionality and specs, but also features a button to access Windows Vista's Flip 3D feature, letting users flip through open windows. Other software features include a magnifier tool and back button. There is also a snap-in transceiver on the bottom of the mouse that turns the device off when snapped in. It boasts six months of use with one battery.

The Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 7000 will be widely available in September 2007 and the Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 in October 2007 -- each for an estimated retail price of $50.

    Microsoft finally found something they don't suck at: making wireless mice.

    Thats cause

    They dont actually make it. They subcontract a company for that. They just stick their s*** label on it to depreciate the value of the poor mouse.

    Apple Doesn't Make Macs?

    Nonsense. Microsoft designs the mice -- the best I have ever used -- and has someone else manufacture them.

    Apple has someone else manufacture it's computers. But they're still Macs. It doesn't make any difference who "actually" makes them.
