New Logitech MX610 Laser Mouse...

Okay, I like the laser mice, and logitech makes some bad ass products, but im failing to see the need for the mouse buttons to light up when you get a new email or IM. Wouldnt you be sitting in front of the machine already to see that, so I think something like that would be redundant.

Dont know what purpose lugging your mouse in another room with you would be or if it would even have a signal after a certain distance. Granted new range with the higher frequency, but just how far could you really be from your machine before you couldnt see your monitor clearly, what, maybe 10 feet, and thats pushing it. Id only see a benny there if you were using a projector and doing a presentation or something.

Probably just for flashyness to one-up Microsoft.

What exactly defines normalcy?

Whos to say what everyone *thinks* is normal isnt actually odd or insane?

True.. very true.

Maybe you are normal, but me... don't think so!

But I guess that's all a matter of perspection.. (though, there really is a definition of abnormal!)

Of course, if I tell you what it is, you might think I'm nuts, so I'll shut it up now. ;D

Cut it out with the philosophy, Taz, you can't be normal.   You like Unix! ;D
