Top three mobile application threats

Natural selection?

This clever rethink of Doug Englebart's invention does what it claims, does it well, and is a near-perfect solution for my MSI Wind. Shame that it's not Bluetooth, making the USB adaptor necessary, but the adaptor's triple role as wireless transceiver, charger and docking station goes a long way to justifying its existence.

Verdict

Overall, the Futuremouse is very nicely crafted piece of kit, Christmas-cracker-sized but built like real jewellery. Priced like real jewellery too, alas. For the money you could opt buy a couple of standard bulk wireless mice from decent brands, but how you'd fare using them atop your keyboard is another matter. ®
