BBC: "Microsoft has announced that new versions of its mouse will be fitted with wheels that tilt as well as roll."

Seems like the mouse is more and more turning into some kind of generic “hand tool” – someday it will become a glove, motorized, resisting, with tactility features and “Xtra-Bass” ™ effects and a million different special input modes.  Maybe even customized per person; “I can’t use your mouse – I don’t know how it works!”
