    You know, I am all for bashing Microsoft when due. And certainly over the years, Microsoft has done much to deserve such scrutiny and bashing. But note how this article, and the "hard time" article it references is not about the virtues of Apple's remarkable new mouse, but how Microsoft failed to be the first to release such a product. This is simply "Microsoft bashing" for the sake of bashing Microsoft. Pure biased, unprofessional journalism. Do you see any kudos to Apple? No.

    Last I checked, it is not Microhard - it is Microsoft - a software company. They are not in the business of producing innovative hardware products, they make operating systems and office productivity "software". Okay, they sell "branded" keyboards with special Windows buttons, and they have a big R&D department figuring out to make your hardware work better for you but does that mean they have to be the "first" to come out with new hardware technologies too? Come on!

    Yes, probably the most technologically advanced mouse to-date (including Apple's Magic Mouse).
    Personally, would probably prefer Microsoft's Arc Touch Mouse (not to be confused with the Microsoft Arc Mouse) though.

    I can do almost the same things, even more, with mine ergonomic multi-button mouse and it even provides tactile feedback. "Touchy" products are just new fashion.
