A Pink Mouse for the Cure

Call me a girl, but I like pink. I’ve never had a pink mouse though, although I’ve seen plenty for sale. But now there’s one available that’s tempting me to purchase, not just for its color but because I know it’s for a good cause.
This upcoming special edition of the Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 has been made in partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which you probably know is the world’s largest breast cancer charitable organization.
Microsoft will be donating 10% of the selling price ($4.00 USD) with a minimum donation of $200,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure when the mouse goes on sale mid-September (retail price: $39.95 USD). The money will be used for research grants and community outreach projects, reports the Microsoft Hardware blog.
The mouse offers pretty great hardware specs, too, including BlueTrack technology, a tiny nano transceiver and customizable buttons. Windows 7 integration is supported as well.
