A mouse that doubles as a remote

It's designed for wireless media presentations.

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.
