The tale of the computer mouse

Saturday, October 18, 2008

This year the humble and much overlooked computer mouse turned 45 years old.

Douglas Engelbart at the Stanford Research Institute invented the first mouse in 1963. Looking more like a wooden box with a cord hanging out more than anything else, (pictured) the mouse was so named because it did look like it had the tail of a mouse running out of it.

Engelbart, although he had patented it, never received any royalties for his handy device, as the patent ran out before it became widely used in personal computers.

Some analysts now predict that the mouse will be obsolete within the next 3 - 5 years.

"i am nothing special of this i am sure. i am a common man with common thoughts and i've led a common life. there are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. but i've loved someone with all my heart and soul. and to me, this has always been enough."
