New MS Blue Tech "Gaming" Mouse

Looks pretty cool if they incorporated some of these technologies into "working" mice.  I particularly like the "Play and Charge" feature.  The mouse is wireless, but if/when the battery runs out, just plug in the USB cable, and keep using it while the battery charges.  I used to use a Logitech MX1000 that was rechargable.  It was annoying on the rare occasion when I would run the battery down and have to put it in its cradle to recharge, thus not having a mouse to use (I do have a stash of corded mice, but that's not the point :) ).  I could do without the "extreme" styling and weight set, though.
