    I'm sure there are a few Loungers who would be interested in the leather mouse. What ya reckon Cowboydawg? <img src=/S/duck.gif border=0 alt=duck width=23 height=23> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> I was going to 'wink' but thought that would be asking for trouble!

    Hey, I like leather. That way I can keep my mouse shiny. Hmmm, that don't sound right does it. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15> OK, how about, it would go with my leather chair. Yeah, thats better. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Here's an article on the new leather mouse in detail from Extreme Tech:

    Hmmm, that gives me an idea

    Leather? Interesting idea, but you'd think they'd get creative here. How 'bout a pigskin or kid leather mouse? This will bring a whole new (or old, if you will) meaning to the concept of "skinning." Think of the possibilities! For my mouse, I'd like to go a step further and use an actual mouse pelt! Come on, with all those lab rats out there, you'd think there's a good after-market recycling opportunity here.

    (I have a friend with a beautiful leather watch strap who takes great pleasure in making people guess what kind of leather it is. The punchline comes when she finally admits that it's tanned chicken leg skin. I tell you, it looks amazing.)

    Sounds like the univerally despised apple mouse to me, except it appears to have two buttons. Someone should tell MS that they shouldn't copy everything that apple does <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15>
