    Microsoft Mobility Quiz.....

    Well, I guess wonders will never cease.....

    I left to go out for a bit and when I returned a strange brown envelope was on my doorstep.

    I looked at the return address and Bill Gates sent me something..... What could it be, I wouldn't have ordered anything from them....

    I ripped open the package and found a Microsoft Notebook Optical mouse.... and a letter about the XP Mobility quiz... Then I remembered the link to take the quiz and the headache trying to complete it....

    This thing is about the coolest mouse I have ever seen.... It is the perfect size mouse for my kid.... and optical at that... I hate cleaning the mouse attached to his computer... Always finding mega mysterious stuff on the ball rollers and bars...


    Hopefully everyone else is starting to receive their's also.... :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

    I would say this was about 3 months ago.

    After about a hour the server was packed and was overwhelmed....

    Some were lucky and made it through...

    Some were not.

    I was really beginning to think I was a sucker -- it took me an hour and a quarter, plus countless refreshes to complete the quiz. Two weeks later this mouse was on sale for $15 at BB. Nice to have now though. 8)

    It took me about 40 minutes to finally get through it.... I even tried it a second time.... :D I know :D Greedy...

    But I don't think I would have paid for one of these....

    Yeah, it's quite an interesting mouse... USB though... I was kinda suprised it didn't have the ol' PS2 adapter....

    My kid freaked when he saw it..... Good thing it is a corded mouse or I think he would drag it with him everywhere..... :D

    Here it is -- click on the picture to see a closeup. It lights up the inside with a red light when you move it. 8)
