    Looks about as useful as the arc mouse.

    I like the "nano transceiver". The big "mouse" transceiver is a waste of space and doesn't work every well anyway. Much nicer to have a tiny one.
     
  4. I love the arc mouse! Everyone who has tried mine ended up buying one as well. This should be cool.

    I could see it taking place of the current keyboard I use to control media, but I'm also fairly sure this isn't the first to not have a number pad. Hey Microsoft, know what would really be cool? Make that textpad on the Xbox 360 controller work as a keyboard. That would really be nice for media centers.
