HP puts some new clothes on a mouse

Bluetooth Laser Mouse gets a little fashion sense.

Hewlett-Packard

HP's products have never been known for their fashion sense, but some extra-curricular coaching from Gwen Stefani may be paying off. Its new Bluetooth Laser Mouse isn't going to set Milan on fire--was this the best they could do for its name?--but remember who we're talking about. It's Hewlett-Packard.

So HP might deserve a little more credit for adding a tiny bit of flair, kind of like the way you compliment an acquaintance for wearing jeans instead of Dockers for the first time. The specs aren't too shabby either, according to Chip Chick, with 1600 dpi resolution and a power-saving standby mode. But somehow, we don't think the company will be co-branding with 50 Cent anytime soon.
