    Sounds good to me. Logitech is one of the few really solid companies in my opinion. They put out really great products at mostly reasonable prices that last a long time.

    @freedomthinker: If Logitech is looking to expand (as they are), it's probably more cost effective to purchase a company that's in the direction they are looking to, and then expanding it, as opposed to entirely reinventing stuff that already exists.

    Weird fact (at least for me): Did you know Logitech was a Swiss born company? For some reason I always thought of them as a regular US-based peripheral maker.
