Diamonds and flat mouse are a bad combo

This is wrong on so many fronts. First, there's the obvious: a mouse festooned with diamonds and gold? It's bad enough that we're forced to endure $29,000 USB sticks made of the same. Second, would you really want to jam something like a rock-studded "MoGo Mouse" into your computer? That's where the ultra-slim peripheral is stored and recharged, in the PC slot .

Even though this limited edition is estimated at a relatively paltry sum of $1,000, according to Newlaunches, we can just imagine its stones coming loose inside a laptop's chassis. And the last thing you'd want to do is mess around with a screwdriver in there if you don't absolutely have to.
