    I think though BB2 should be under events as its a release, and was born sometime ago.
    Cool bit of history facts though.
    Love it!!!!!! and also your involvement in the forums.
    Keep it up.

    Hmm, computer mouse - This is very interesting, just read this on Wikipedia that this device is actually much older than we thought (or at least I thought). First trackpads are from the late 40s and mouse 60s... Fascinating! (Worth reading while waiting for BB2 Release Announcement :)
