Microsoft Steve Ballmer's annual letter to shareholders makes it very clear Microsoft is at a point of no return - and in the middle of a transition into a hardware company. "This is a significant shift, both in what we do and how we see ourselves - as a devices and services company. It impacts how we run the company, how we develop new experiences, and how we take products to market for both consumers and businesses." Line. Sand.

I never really liked Microsoft mice much. Always much preferred Logitech.

Not bought a keyboard or mouse in nearly a decade though, so I wouldn't even like to guess how Logitech hardware holds up these days.

Ditto. As lucas_maximus pointed out, Microsoft's mice were made Logitech... though I did always found that the Logitech-branded mice had a much sturdier, heavier feel to them.

Just picked up a m500 (mouse) a week or two back, which I do recommend (especially for those with large hands) - it feels pretty much identical to my trusty old MouseMan plus. Not a fan of their keyboards though - then or now - they've always been overpriced rubber-dome garbage (IME).
