WOW-mousepen optical pointing device

The goal of every road warrior should be to lighten the load while gaining more mobile efficiency. It's nice when you can get by with just a Smartphone or a Pocket PC, but sometimes you need to pack a laptop for some heavy-duty computing. When you're toting the Tablet or laptop, a small portable mouse helps to make you more productive. At the Consumer Electronic Show, I discovered just the prefect mouse to pack, but I didn't recognize it as a mouse. When I first saw it, it attracted me to it like a cat. As soon as I saw it demonstrated, the word that escaped from my mouth was, "WOW!" I kid you not, and curiously, that's what it's called--the WOW-mousepen. It's a sophisticated, cutting-edge, state-of-the-art, optical human input device that replaces cumbrous rodents.

It plugs into the USB port of any computer and works instantly. Weighing only 38g (1.34 oz.), it is compact and easy to carry. While it is designed for right-handers, I'm a lefty, and it works just fine for me too. You hold it as you would hold a pencil, which gives you great control for pointing, gaming, and graphics.

Its ergonomic design will inhibit carpal tunnel syndrome and shoulder aches from excessive, repetitive motions. Its silvernano component kills germs, bacteria, and viruses on contact. If people sneeze on your WOW-mousepen, you won't get their germs from touching your pointing device.

Color is in when it comes to computer components and electronic gadgets, which seems to be largely driven by female taste and input. Whatever the reason, I'm for it, and so are the WOW-mousepens. They come in four colors: silver, red, blue, and pink. These designer hues ought to satisfy just about anyone's taste and complement any decor.

A rocker switch simulates the left and right mouse buttons. A downward push is equivalent to a left click, and a push up corresponds to a right click. There's also a scroll wheel to move backward and forward rapidly in a document or on a Web page.

The WOW-mousepen glides smoothly over any surface--even glass--with precision tracking. There is no need to use a mousepad. In fact, I use one with my Protege M205 Tablet PC and put it right on the keyboard next to the thumb panel. It's great for use in cramped quarters such as on airplanes.

With a WOW-mousepen, you will experience a new joy of movement as you effortlessly glide across computer screens knowing you are guarding against the complications of carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive strain injury while protecting yourself against contagious critters. Not only that, you will be the envy of your friends with this snazzy, new, colorful, state-of-the-art optical pointing device.

To get yours, go to The suggested retail price is $69.95, but there is an introductory sale price for a limited time of only $39.95. If you like to be on the cutting edge and the first kid on the block with a new toy, this is your chance. Check it out!
