A mouse for the CPA who has (nearly) everything…

First there was the mouse—a simple one-button device that guided your cursor. Then a second button was added, creating right- and left-button commands. After that the design incorporated a scroll wheel, which maneuvered the cursor down or up the page. Now, in the latest mouse technology advancement, the MX Revolution from Logitech ( www.logitech.com ) needs just a flick of the finger on the scroll wheel to accelerate the cursor from a creep to blazingly fast. In addition, it can even direct the cursor to dart either horizontally or vertically.

As if that’s not enough, the mouse has a second horizontally mounted scroll wheel on the left side that can switch the cursor to jump to another file or Web page on the screen for further browsing.
