Not big and not clever.

Or actually too big. I like a nice micro mouse for my laptop, not something that dwarfs it!

Reduce the mouse size by three quarters and I'm sold.

I do like the tiny teeny weeny USB receiver though, the number of times I've clumsily knocked out my current dongle.

It just looks a bit tacky

I don't know about the 'could knock your hand into a door slant', just tacky I think.

Someone had to try it at some point though.

Re: dongles

I use bluetooth for my speakers and headset. Regretably using anything like a mouse or keyboard at the same time causes stutters if it is bluetooth as well.

Thank god for the logitech VX nano receivers is all I can say, given the microsoft/anyone elses offerings include a large receiver the size of a thumb sticking out of your USB socket.

Button is a stupid idea, but the mouse looks good.

Finally, a minature USB dongle

I've been waiting for something like this for years. A practical sized USB dongle you can plug into a laptop and forget about is ideal for me.

Amusing to see this excellent advancement in the USB dongle minaturisation is coupled with the what I can only call the sh1ttest thing I've seen all week. The button hook could revolutionise the world! I want one for everything I own. I could hang my wallet, phone, glasses and house keys on the lid of my laptop. Why didn't I think of that. I wonder if there's some wazzock in the R&D department at Logitech feeling really pleased with themselves. What next? A button hook to hang your laptop on your Segway? lol.

The idea sounds good in principal

Grr another 'it spellchecked OK so it must be right' incident. Surely Reg knows that its readers are the most vocal, nit-picking pedants around?
