Cogs can think.

I'm a mere, tiny, insignificant cog in a whole clockwork of stupidity.
The little cog that wanted to break free, I am.

Wireless sucks butt

Why on earth is everybody so keen on wireless mice, headphones, keyboards, etc?

I *hate* wireless equipment. One word: batteries. It's just plain silly to have a wireless keyboard anyway, I mean, how many times are you moving your keyboard around the house? How many times have you used your mouse on the other end of your room? And in the end, you still have to plug *something* in the back of your computer (the reciever), and as an extra extreme annoyance, you get the batteries. And of course, they always run out on a saturday night so you're switching batteries with your TV remote, only to found out you already did that trick a few months ago. Goddamnit.

That's why no mouse or keyboard of my computers is wireless. The only wireless computer thing in this house is my PalmOne Tungsten E2, which uses BlueTooth to connect to my iBook.

Wireless input devices are a hype. Nothing more, nothing less.

Actually, they're extremely convenient when it comes to having to manuever other things around a cramped desk, such as food, work, cds, etc. And who said anything about batteries? Waste of time/money. Yes, batteries makes for easier traveling, but they're not worth it. Using a charger (assuming you're primarily using a separate mouse and keyboard ... so, they wouldn't be needed for travel) would cut down on costs a lot. Given, wireless peripherals with chargers cost a bit more, but in the end are more convenient and cost less than batteries.

I'll have to agree with you except for wireless mice. You can't beat the freedom of movement, wires were always a pain for me...

Batteries last for ages and I always have a spare pair charged for when they run out, although optical mice don't last nearly as long as ball mice. I'm finished with optical mice anyway, they seem to have a mind of their own, another marketing scam!

I loved my symmetrical Logitech mouse, had it for years, shame the cover clip broke! You can't buy these anymore, all the mice on the market now are crap. Just like the chair I bought last week which is now broken!
