I came up with all those names

It`s called a mouse because if you turn it sideways and hold the bottom level with your eyes it has the same profile as a mouse

If I remember the first mouse for computers came out with Mac computers back in the 80's. At My Mac Plus came with a mouse; it was the first time I used a computer with a mouse, and now days using a computer without one seems strange. . .
