I’m a huge fan of multitasking. In fact, the more a thing can do fairly well, the more fun it is for me. I never kid myself though, most of the time when something tries to do too much it doesn’t usually do most of it very well, like the Chinese pizza and taco place down the street.
However, if there were to be 3 things that should fit great together, why wouldn’t it be a seemingly ordinary, albeit simply gorgeous mouse, that when flipped upside down, offers a fully functional game controller and a PC remote that can bring up your iTunes with the push of a button, flip through some tracks, handle your power point presentation and shut down your computer.
The X1 gamepad that is built into the bottom includes a 5 stage adjustable 1600 dpi optical sensor with 125 Hz polling rate and connects to your laptop or desktop through a USB dongle over a 2.4 GHz wireless connection, and while all that certainly isn’t very high-tech by todays standards and I can’t be sure you’re going to be able to make it through Azeroth with it, you can certainly enjoy it with some classic arcade video games from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. Definitely more fun than pizza and tacos.
