Microsoft Issues Pink Mouse For Breast Cancer Awareness

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and usually, there are lots of consumer electronics companies that introduce pink products in order to help raise money for the cause. This year, Microsoft is getting things started early with their new special edition mouse, a pink one in which 10% of the purchase price goes to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

It's a Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000, and the pink on this one actually isn't bright or glaring. It's a soft, subtle hue, and the mouse itself uses BlueTrack technology (for tracking on nearly any surface), a Plug & Go Nano Receiver, 2.4GHz wireless technology, a 10 month battery life and a scroll wheel. It's $39.95, and $4 per product sold will go to the cure. The best news is that Microsoft is making a minimum donation of $200,000 either way, so good on them.

In Support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Posted by Hardware Team in Mice, Mouse, Susan G. Komen Special Edition Pink Mouse

Every 23 seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with breast cancer. These are mothers, sisters, aunts, grandmothers and friends.* The Microsoft Hardware Team is doing what we can during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by partnering with Susan G. Komen for the Cure to create a special edition pink mouse. We’re donating 10% of the selling price to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world’s largest and most progressive grassroots network of survivors and activists fighting to end breast cancer forever.

Purchasing one of these special edition mice will not only contribute to a great cause, but set you up with a particularly stylish mouse that works wherever you do. It’s available for $39.95, so get one today and help contribute to a great cause!

I would be more likely to believe Microsoft cared about women, if these mice weren't made by women in Chinese sweatshops.

They're crying in that picture because they can't get them to work,.........

The subject of *** Cancer is near and dear to my heart. Maybe I'll buy one for my wife.

Actually, they're sleeping, because their shift is 7:45am to 10:55pm - it's easier to sleep at your station and just start working the next morning. Working for 34p an hour, they'd have to work for 869+ years to make Ballmer's normal yearly bonus.

I can't edit any posts in this thread... which prohibits me from making that a real link or adding (according to the article) "The image Microsoft doesn't want you to see".
