Somebody is getting it right

In this article the author tells about wireless products. With the technology that's available today, there's simply no need for a wired mouse. The author tried a few different products, and again, for various reasons none met his expectations. In the desktop product, the author had three complaints: the RF signal was interfering with other products in his office, making the cursor movement erratic, it caused the system to hang when the author tried to come out of standby mode, and there was an annoying delay whenever the mouse sat idle for a few seconds. The company that answered the call was Logitech. The accuracy it exhibits using an Agilent laser certainly exceeds author's expectations.
