Tuesday, June 9th, 2009 and March 11th, 2008, Daily Giz Wiz 523: Logitech VX Nano Mouse. (Yes, the first time in more than 800 shows we each did the same gadget! It was 15 months apart though. That's 12 years in gadget years.)
When Leo started talking about the Logitech VX Nano Wireless Laser Mouse I was totally familiar with it because I have one. It wasn’t until I started typing the notes for this entry in the Daily Giz Wiz Journal that I thought, “Wait a minute, didn’t I already do this gizmo myself on the Daily Giz Wiz?” A quick search at my old website showed I did it. Here's that report with some new comments from Leo. This gizmo is a travel mouse that about 60% the size of your typical desk mouse. The Logitech wireless VX Nano mouse gives you a nice, comfy, contoured, rubber grip body. Just plug the tiny (said to be the world’s smallest – 15 months ago, anyway) receiver into your USB port, and forget about it. It’s small enough to stay plugged in, even when you put your laptop into most cases! If you want to take the receiver out of the laptop, it stores right in the bottom of the mouse. Something I did learn from Leo is that when you put the receiver in its holder inside the mouse, it shuts off the VX’s power. Nice! Then the mouse fits into its own travel case, which ships with the unit. With 6 buttons and tilt wheel, the laser VX Nano offers you smooth cursor control on nearly any surface. For long web pages you can “unlock” the scroll wheel for high-speed, low friction scrolling. You can fly through your documents, moving side-to-side or up and down. Suggest retail is $99, but it’s on Amazon for about $53.
