13 Stages In The Evolution of the Mouse

Quote:
Mice—they’re something we PC enthusiasts tend to take for granted. After all, once you’ve specced out your new rig with a blazing fast processor and a video card the size of a VCR, what’s it really matter what we use to move the pointer around?

To refresh your memory, we’ve put together a list of 13 mice that introduced major new features and blew open new markets. Read on for a lesson in the history of the mouse!

An interesting article... even if they do keep calling them Mice. The correct plural of mouse, in the computer sense, is mouses

i prefer 'meeces'

Quote:
The Compact Oxford English Dictionary (third edition) and the fourth edition of The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language endorse both computer mice and computer mouses as correct plural forms for computer mouse. Some authors of technical documents may prefer either mouse devices or the more generic pointing devices. The plural mouses treats mouse as a "headless noun".
