We don't really have the weather for a celebration by the sea but it's still party time as Logitech has announced the shipping of its 100 millionth wireless mouse - a milestone that's been in the making for 19 years.
Back in 1991 Logitech was the first to release a radio-frequency (RF) based mouse for PCs and since then it flooded the market with wire-free mice that provide more freedom but also require regular recharging (or battery changing). The first RF mouse was priced at $150 upon release but now you can get a Logitech mouse with a nano receiver for just $25, which goes to prove, 19 years have done wonders for wireless peripherals.
"Logitech mice have played an integral role in improving the computing experience for millions of people, and our wireless mice build on that heritage," said Rory Dooley, Logitech senior vice president and general manager of the Control Devices business unit. "Today, our wireless mice deliver a robust feature set combined with unparalleled ease of use and precision. And the new mice we offer in a variety of colors and patterns provide consumers with an element of self expression while they use their laptop and mouse to seamlessly navigate their favorite content."
