    Remember when these were 20 a pop?

    Scan.co.uk: Microsoft 673-00346, Intelli Ball Mouse, PS2, 2 Buttons, Ivory

    Does anyone actually use PS2 ball mice anymore? Anyway, not bad at 2.50 a go, if you need them that is

    I bought one of those for use at home. Must have been 1999 perhaps?

    Ahh I remember when Acorn mice were 70, I used to work at a computer dealer and repaired them for 30 an hour!

    No, and I would rather spend more and get a mouse that doesn't fall to pieces as soon as I touch it. However if you're buying cheap for family members or as a backup, can't go wrong really!

    On a related note, I came across an article from 2004 that said this about USB flash drives:

    "They are everywhere, you can get sizes up to a massive 256mb for as little as 34"

    I read that as I was copying files to my 8Gb Kingston drive that cost 7.99.

    My first flash drive was 32Mb and cost 30-40 (and is still working!). My friend told me it was a waste of money - I'd never fill it...

    I'd probably buy one out of nostalgia - iconic shape and design - even if the use of one for a couple of years in the late nineties did worsen my carpal tunnel syndrome in my right hand.

    I remember having an early USB drive in 2003 and recall one teacher remarking about how they'd never catch on. It was about that time I stopped using my Zip drive. I actually found a Zip disk in the attic the other day and I am a little curious as to what it contains.
