    I'm using wireless mouses at the moment. Probably only a matter of time before they are hacked. I don't give a dongle!

    I guess it just hasn't clicked yet how vulnerable our hardware actually is.

    Inside me somewhere I always have that "suspicion" when picking up those wireless mouse packs if the makers tinker with slipping on them some weirdness just for sake of that they can so why not. :cautious:

    I always like to set the Windows mouse pointer speed to Max so sometimes zippity do dah runs the pointer clean across the screen thanks to my reflexes. :D

    Have a good night.

    Of course, as most of us realise, this is just a bunch of cobblers.
    A bunch of academics trying to justify their grant applications by introducing a theory that can never be proved.
    My mouse movement on the article page was to scroll down the page, trying to keep my hand steady while laughing my guts out, and then straight to that magic little "x" that removes the page from my life forever.
