Nonetheless, there’s almost always something sitting in my living room plugged into an outlet to charge. My lovely wife just barely tolerates this, and regularly asks if I need to have all these things lying about.” (cgear)

“Hard to believe that’s what a computer mouse used to look like on the inside. I still remember having to scrape the accumulated lint off that ball with an X-acto knife so I could smoothly work my 72-dpi Photoshop renderings. The photo is part of Flickr user raneko’s excellent ’25 Years of Apple Mouse Evolution’ series, which ranges from the 1984 brick to the 2009 Magic Mouse.” (core77)
