Logitech has unveiled a new ‘Anywhere Mouse M905’ featuring dark-field laser tracking that lets you use your mouse on clear glass and high-gloss surfaces
Logitech, the world's largest manufacturer of computer mice, has unveiled a new mouse ‘Anywhere Mouse M905’ featuring dark-field laser tracking that lets you use your mouse on clear glass and high-gloss surfaces.
"Thanks to Logitech Darkfield, whether you're checking the morning news from the granite counter top in your kitchen or at work manipulating a spreadsheet from your glass desk, you can be confident that your Logitech mouse will be up to the task," said Rory Dooley, Logitech's senior vice president and general manager of the company’s Control Devices business unit.
Logitech said that its research showed that 40% of people have a glass surface in their home. This coupled with the increase in the popularity of laptop computers, means that people are moving around and coming into contact with a multitude of surfaces—like granite and lacquered wood—that challenge the tracking capabilities of standard mice. To overcome these limitations, the company has launched a new mouse that works well on even a clear glass and high-gloss surface.
The Anywhere Mouse M905 is available at Rs5,595.

Many large companies have recorded a weak top-line growth during the third quarter that ended on 31 December 2009
While the Sensex is trading at a P/E of 20 and has hit a 21-month high, December quarter results should give the bulls a pause to think. In the first week, some 65 companies have declared results and the interesting news is that many of the large companies have recorded a weak top-line growth. While Infosys has declared excellent results, mid-size software company Mastek posted a dismal performance. Its sales in the December quarter were down by 25% over the same period last year. Usha Martin, which is planning to raise Rs500 crore through qualified institutional placements (QIPs) to reduce its debt, has suffered a top-line decline of 14%. Lacklustre performance came from Jindal Saw and also HDFC Bank. Jindal Saw’s revenues were down by 11% while HDFC Bank reported a surprising fall of 10% in revenues for the December quarter over the same period last year. Revenues of another bank, State Bank of Bikaner & Jaipur, also fell 5%. Slow demand on the global and domestic fronts has weighed on the top-line of Rallis India. Its sales declined by 3%. While analysts are gung-ho about the future growth of Infosys, its revenues too were down by 2%. VST Industries and Gruh Finance both posted a 1% decline in sales. Companies like Finolex Industries and Sintex Industries posted a meagre 2% growth in their top-line in the December quarter over the same period last year. Axis Bank’s growth too was not too stellar—just 4%. Infomedia 18 which launched Forbes magazine last year, posted a decline of 38% in sales in the December quarter over the same period last year.
Declining sales are a clear indication of weak demand, which raises doubts about the economic recovery. Across all industries, companies have recorded weak sales—a disturbing fact, indicating that growth in the overall economy is yet to gain momentum.
