A combo USB storage mouse for pack rats

Wireless dongle can be detached depending on what function is used.

If you're working on those hoarding issues but still can't quite bear to go cold turkey without a USB storage key at all times, then maybe this is a compromise on the way to recovery.

Asus has created a mouse that doubles as a flash drive so you can maintain your pack-rat tendencies with no one being the wiser. The MS71 is a wireless mouse that has a detachable dongle that acts as a USB transmitter when it's not being used for the storage half of the equation, according to Everything USB.

As a mouse, it certainly doesn't look like the most comfortable to use, not unlike other exceptionally small models we've seen. Then again, a lot of people swear by MoGo's anorexic version , so we'll withhold judgment.
