 Mouse (computing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The name "mouse", coined at the Stanford Research Institute, derives from the resemblance of early models (which had a cord attached to the rear part of the device, suggesting the idea of a tail) to the common small rodent of the same name.
This mouse uses a small laser instead of an LED, which according to the companies can increase the resolution of the image taken by the mouse, leading to around 20× more sensitivity to the surface features used for navigation compared to conventional optical mice, via interference effects.
Many games, such as first- or third-person shooters, have a setting named "invert mouse" or similar (not to be confused with "button inversion", sometimes performed by left-handed users) which allows the user to look downward by moving the mouse forward and upward by moving the mouse backward (the opposite of non-inverted movement).

This mouse uses a small laser instead of an LED, which according to the companies can increase the resolution of the image taken by the mouse, leading to arround 20× increase in the sensitivity to the surface features used for navigation compared to conventional optical mice, via interference effects.
Newer revisions of the mouse do not suffer from this problem, which is a power-saving feature (almost all optical mice, laser or LED based, also implement this power-saving feature, except those intended for use in gaming, where a millisecond of delay is significant).
Mini-mouse – a small egg-sized mouse for use with laptop computers; it is usually small enough to be used on a free area of the laptop body itself.

 Mouse
These include the mouse's genetic similarity to humans (at least 80% of DNA in mice is identical to that of humans), small size, short lifespan and reproductive cycle, low maintenance in captivity, and mild manner.
The average lifespan of a wild mouse is typically one to two years, while mice kept as pets usually live about three years and have survived up to six years.
While the mild-mannered mouse is ill-suited for confrontation and nearly always prefers flight to fighting, a single mouse can incite a near panic among people simply by scurrying across a room.

In addition to the conventional mouse, there are trackballs, touch pads, finger tip joysticks, and pucks, to name a few.
For example, a mouse that is too sensitive may require excessive and prolonged finger force to provide adequate control.
A mouse that has insufficient sensitivity may require large deviation of the wrist to move the pointer around the screen.

 Computer mouse help and information
The mouse or mice was invented by Douglas Englebart in 1963, who at the time was working at the Stanford Research Institute, which was a think tank sponsored by Stanford University.
As the mouse is moved, the ball rolls in the direction of the movement which, in turn, moves the roller (X or Y axis).
The mouse ball is the main part within the mouse which allows the user to move the mouse which moves the appropriate axis which then moves the mouse cursor on the screen.

 What is mouse? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
Invented by Douglas Engelbart of Stanford Research Center in 1963, and pioneered by Xerox in the 1970s, the mouse is one of the great breakthroughs in computer ergonomics because it frees the user to a large extent from using the keyboard.
The mouse is also useful for graphics programs that allow you to draw pictures by using the mouse like a pen, pencil, or paintbrush.
Mechanical sensors within the mouse detect the direction the ball is rolling and move the screen pointer accordingly.

 Stanford Magazine > March/April 2002 > Feature Story > Mighty Mouse
The mouse’s evolution “from the laboratory to the living room,” as one of its designers puts it, is not well known—even some Apple fanatics aren’t familiar with it—but it reveals something of the personalities of its designers, the Stanford program that trained them and even the history of Silicon Valley.
Hovey, the mouse project’s informal head, says he “hacked together” the first conceptual prototype in a weekend—using the ball from a bottle of Ban Roll-On deodorant and a butter dish purchased at the Palo Alto Walgreens (“the mouse parts store,” he calls it).
“The fact that the mouse was unobtrusive and natural is the result of a lot of work.” Few users ever notice the heft of the cord, or the effect the connector linking the cord to the mouse has on the mouse’s agility, or the silence of the ball as it moves across the desk.

 What is mouse? - a definition from Whatis.com
- A mouse is a small device that a computer user pushes across a desk surface in order to point to a place on a display screen and to select one or more actions to take from that position.
A mouse consists of a metal or plastic housing or casing, a ball that sticks out of the bottom of the casing and is rolled on a flat surface, one or more buttons on the top of the casing, and a cable that connects the mouse to the computer.
Although the mouse has become a familiar part of the personal computer, its design continues to evolve and there continue to be other approaches to pointing or positioning on a display.
