A mouse that doubles as a remote

It's designed for wireless media presentations.

Giz Fever

The poor mouse. Apparently it needs to come up with more functions by the day to stave off extinction . Already they make phone calls , balance the checkbook , keep us warm , print labels , give massages , and even try to save jobs . They do everything but cook dinner (so far).

And yet we demand more. So once again, the selfless peripheral has stepped up with another function, this one as a remote control. It's not the first remote-mouse combo, but GeekAlerts says this one is wireless, which is everything when used for multimedia presentations. We just hope it'll work on the TV too.
