Netscape Online mouse has ceased to be

intro

Hacks who were deafened at the rave-style launch of AOL's subscription-free ISP Netscape Online (NSO) last month were given a sleek metallic mouse complete with a capital "N" tattooed on its back by of thanks for turning up. Unfortunately the little squeaker delivered to The Register went belly-up less than 24 hours after it was plugged in causing one "old faithful" Fujitsu PC to freeze three times in a matter of hours. Is this a metaphor for NSO or just another example of more crap marketing tat offloaded onto journos in the hope they'll write something nice?
