    Happy birthday Mouse

    No not a forum member or a wee furry thing...

    The humble computer mouse celebrates its 40th anniversary today.

    On 9 December 1968 hi-tech visionary Douglas Engelbart first used one to demonstrate novel ways of working with computers.

    The first mouse that Dr Engelbart used in the demo at the Fall Joint Computer Conference (FJCC) was made of wood and had one button.

    Much of the technology shown off in the demo inspired the creation of the hardware and software now widely used.

    What would we do without it?

    I'm using a trackpad. It's kinda like a mouse that has been flattened.
