The Logitech mouse hits a billion


It’s official - the mice are slowly gathering force to outnumber us humans, and we only have Logitech to blame. The world's top computer peripherals company announced on Wednesday that it has shipped out its one-billionth mouse for PCs. And the announcement comes just as the company is celebrating the fortieth anniversary of the first time the computer mouse was demonstrated to the public by one of its founders, Doug Engelbart.

To celebrate hitting the one billionth mark, Logitech is also launching a worldwide contest - people are invited to track the route of the one billionth mouse, Billie, as it makes it journey from the start of production to the final destination. Those contestants who have the correct answer to the question posted each day (for the next two weeks) on Billie's Blog will be eligible for Logitech's daily draw for a product prize.

Whatcha waiting for Pied Piper, 'tis time to forget the rats and woo the mice instead.

Via Electronista.
