Cool and hip. Those aren’t words usually used to describe products from nerd-central Microsoft. Still, their latest wireless optical mice can only be described as, well, happenin’. They have an ergonomic design and come in three funky colors for $45 to $55. What’s next? Bill Gates in trendy purple shirts? Don’t hold your breath. But do cast your vote for the next nifty colors at www.microsoft.com/hardware/personality.
