Hot colors for warm mouse

Brando's heated mouse makes a fashion statement

We think we've finally figured out the strategy behind this whole heated peripheral craze (we're a little slow on the uptake this time of year): The colder it gets outside, the more products are released inside.

That's the only explanation we can come up with for the proliferation of such products as the heated mouse by Brando--which, if you can believe it, has come with its second version in almost as many months. The "USB Warmer Mouse II" seems almost identical to its predecessor but is a bit more stylish, coming in colors like red and yellow.

We wish these toasty USB items came in wireless form, but perhaps the engineering isn't quiet there yet. Anyway, if this doesn't help, you may want to consult a physician regarding your circulatory system.
