I guess that is revolution...for them. I've been controlling my desktop mouse and keyboard via wifi with my ipod for ages. nothing new there.

Same, I use Hippo Remote. I guess it's more of an evolution than a "revolution" because all HP is doing is adding that wireless functionality to an ergonomic form factor.

Yea that's the prog I use as well.

Its nice that we can do away with the little mouse stubs. it we could use the Wifi cards LAN ability then maybe this could be really usfull

What I would really like is more unifying receivers. I don't mind the USB receiver as it tends to work more often than not. Logitech needs to get on the ball with products that use a single USB receiver for multiple peripheral signals like kb mouse and remote. I have a Harmony remote and a wireless keyboard but I still would like it to be on a single USB receiver.

Give me a wireless mouse that doesn't require batteries, then I'll consider it revolutionary.

my mouse is rechargeable

Not good enough. Wired mouses need zero maintenance. I want a wireless mouse to behave exactly like a wired one (without the wire of course).

I'm sure that'll be viable in the near future. I remember reading a magazine article talking about frequency-matching electricity transferring that could be used to power everything wirelessly from one source. I can't wait for that technology to come, honestly.

but my mouse does act like a normal mouse, and i can even disable the ratchet on the scroll wheel if i wanted to, and to charge, i simply plug in a wire and still use it while it charges
