We love mices to pieces—at least when they’re wireless and have built-in memory.
Microsoft just announced the Mobile Memory Mouse 8000, which has 1GB of flash memory built into the unit’s USB receiver. You can work away and save important files right into the mouse. Next thing you know, you won’t even need a screen.
That’s a neat little gimmick, which can come in handy, if not in the home office, than definitely on the road. Whether you are carrying PowerPoint presentations or pictures of the kids, it’s better than having to flip through CDs or dig USB flash drives out of the bottom of your bag.
The mouse also has also has wireless technology that allows notebook users to flip between 2.4GHz wireless or Bluetooth connections.
Also, if you’ve ever worked with a wireless mouse, you know they can drain those AA batteries pretty quickly. Not this little guy; it charges right through the USB port. Nice touch.
The Memory Mouse will be ready next month for $99.95.
