Whaaa??? I love mine. Are you using the standard wired mouse instead? I despise the little Blackberry-like nipple.

Word. That's why I acquired one from a guy in our graphic design department that uses a stylus instead.

Was at the store and got another Klean Kanteen. This one is insulated for my tactical morning coffee.

(Yes Solara TRD dude, this is a picture from the internet. Please feel free to doubt my ownership of such item.)

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

And I must say: it works like a charm. I rode about 25 miles today without any numbness or discomfort. Excellent.

Just need a sleeve? Check out the suede sleeves made by SFBags/Waterfield. They're in the same price range. I use one for my Kindle and bought one for mother's Air. Works great if you just need something to cover it, not necessarily a big bulky case.

Any thoughts?
