USB Optical Mouse – With Floating Homer J. Simpson Review

Product Requirements:

A free USB port

Summer is officially here and with it comes the seasonal malaise of knowing
that kids everywhere are off from school…while we, the adults of the world are
still stuck at work. I won’t get into the unfairness of it all in this review,
but I am happy to tell you that there are subtle things which can be added to
the workspace that not only reflect where we would rather be, but that are also
guaranteed to merit a co-worker’s smile.

Today I’ll be taking a look at USB Geek‘s 
USB Optical Mouse
featuring Homer J. Simpson

Inside the liquid bulb of the palm end, Homer floats with what one can only
assume is a can of his favorite – Duff Beer – perched on his ample belly. Ahhhhh,
that’s the life…

Similar to the

Floating Santa
optical mouse which I reviewed last year, this mouse is
approximately 4.5" long x 3" wide x 1.5 tall. It has the standard left and right
click buttons, as well as a scroll wheel. Compatible with Macs or PCs and fully
plug and play, the mouse only needs to be plugged into a free USB port for the
user will be up and running.

It’s not shown in the pictures, but the LED on this mouse is red. The mouse
glows solid red when it is being used, and the rest of the time…it flickers
red non-stop like a disco light inside Homer’s pool. In a brightly lit office,
this won’t seem that annoying, but in a home office it might get old after a
while. I suppose that a side benefit would be that in a darkened room it can
almost serve as a USB powered night light, so some might consider the flickering
a good thing.

Otherwise, this mouse is cute, responsive, easy to set up and guaranteed to
bring a smile. I keep mine handy as a backup for those times when I forget to
dock my rechargeable wireless mouse and it’s battery is dead.
