    ^What this guy said.

    Plus.
    Display on a mouse, what? You wouldn't really be looking at it considering your hand covers the damn thing. Razer mice have a light up logo on them aswell but it's directly where your palm sits so this idea you have seems pointless.

    Even though you're clearly joking, I'll just leave this here.

    I don't understand this... is that not English??

    Mouse-teasing seems a bit hard on the mouse

    I thought it a delicious title :naughty:

    And....

    — prep
    used between two nouns to designate an object of a combined nature: a kitchen-cum-dining room



    that's interesting and the date that was first published was back in 2006, i think it could have its uses.

    Unfortunately, Merriam Webster does not provide the U.S. English slang definition of cum. I'm guessing that there is not an equivalent slang definition of that word in the U.K.

    No one likes a sticky mouse or display.

    You guess wrongly. 'Cum' as a stand alone word means the same in UK slang as it does in US slang. The title is a pun, or play on words, designed to be informative-cum-amusing.

    Beat me to it, first thing I thought of.
    Nokia screen seems a bit more useful.

    Wonderful place for a display! Couldn't be more practical.

    I just can't wait for their take on the Optimus line... a keyboard with a lovely OLED display mounted on the underside. That'll be cheaper to bring to market than having to put a display in every key and it's very useful as long as you don't mind lifting your keyboard up while you type....

    I'll stop there

    It may not be the prettiest, but again "it's under your palm so you won't see it 90% of the time"

    Also, I had one for a while, and it's actually very comfortable, and the thumb buttons are perfectly positioned.. Pity it's wireless and my home WiFi interfered with its signal :(
