If you've ever rejected a mouse because it clicks so loud you can hear it in the next room, Thanko now offers its Silent Mouse. The company says it s five times quieter than your average mouse, where the wheel and its left and right buttons have been hushed, down to the point of inaudibility. Looks like some kind of special dampening mechanisms are at work inside. Great idea—bring on the quietude. Thanks, Thanko.
