Mice or mouses? Unless you’re particularly finicky when it comes to grammar, who cares? (If you really are particular about these things, though, you’ll find this discussion interesting.) However you wish to call a bunch of those devices you use to point and click when using the computer, you probably will agree that you can’t put a price on a good mouse, though Microsoft might disagree with the price part . They’ve recently announce a new generation of mice, which is supposed to make the Windows experience so much better. So we have two new mice to look forward to: the Sculpt Mobile Mouse and Sculpt Comfort Mouse.
Sculpt Mobile Mouse and Sculpt Comfort Mouse
I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I would have thought that a device of this kind already was in existence! Then again, I have not been a Windows user in ages, so I am probably not as in the loop as I would like to think I am! In any case, the Sculpt Mobile Mouse and Sculpt Comfort Mouse are due to be released in the coming weeks, with the highlight being the inclusion of a hotkey for the Windows 8 Start screen. Simple, but it makes a huge difference, doesn’t it? What are the differences between the Sculpt Mobile Mouse and Sculpt Comfort Mouse?
One, the former is ultra mobile – they say it will fit into your jeans pocket, no matter your size or the cut of your jeans. The latter is the desktop version, hence larger. Two, the Comfort Mouse has additional functionalities such as a capacitive surface that allows you to toggle between open programs. Swiping in the other direction shows you a list of open applications. This surface is also the hotkey. Nifty, isn’t it? Three, you need a dongle for the Mobile Mouse, while you only need Bluetooth for the Comfort Mouse. Four, the Mobile Mouse is tagged at $29.95, while the Comfort Mouse is at $39.95. What do you think of these mice? Would you shell out money for the Sculpt Mobile Mouse and Sculpt Comfort Mouse?
