GPS mouse or maple bar?

We don't care if it does have global tracking--it looks funky.

Road warriors come in all shapes and sizes, and their equipment reflects that diversity. Nowhere is that more evident than the stalwart mouse, where functions can range from built-in VoIP phones to back massagers while looking like a George Foreman Grill the whole time.

But those who truly love to boast of their worldliness would probably want to get one of these: a GPS wireless mouse. The Bluetooth Navilock BT-451, according to OhGizmo, has been released for would-be Magellans on the European market with a "SuperSense" chip that's capable of indoor and outdoor tracking.

Why one would need a GPS mouse is well beyond our comprehension, of course, but the farthest we travel these days is the local Wi-Fi doughtnut shop so we're not exactly experts. We do know, however, that we would't want to carry around a mouse shaped like a maple bar, tracking or no tracking.
