Everybody's favorite Logitech gripe is, in so many words, "Screw the proprietary RF, where's my bleedin' Bluetooth mouse?" Today, in the wee hours of the morning, it seems that wish has been granted. The V470 Cordless Laser Mouse for laptops uses Bluetooth 1.2, and can run on Bluetooth-enabled computers without any proprietary RF dongle. Not only that, it's just $50, operates for up to 4 months on storebought batteries, and has an on-off switch so it doesn't try to mouse its way through your laptop bag when you're off duty. And did I mention it was a very 1970s shade of metallic blue?
