My husband tried for several weeks to convince me to buy this tool. I resisted. Oh, it’s not worth the money. I can use the laptop mouse just fine. Finally, he found a really good rebate and just went ahead and bought me one. Well, I’m convinced. This is pretty cool.
While a cordless mouse is certainly not a necessity, it sure has come in handy. When I’m working on the computer, it serves its obvious purpose; it’s simply easier than those funky laptop controls. For date night movies, we usually set up a laptop in our room and watch the movie, cuddled in bed. This mouse serves as our remote. Very nice not to move from my little cocoon.
And if you’re a nursing mom and still want to surf – this is a great tool. I often need to use both hands to help my babies nurse, particularly when they are small. With the cordless mouse, I can place it on the nursing pillow and use the same arm to support the baby as well as click. Talk about your multi-tasking!
What about you? What tool makes your life easier? It’s okay if it’s a luxury item. No one said these tools are necessary to life. They just help.
