The YapperMouse, A Skype Enabled Mouse

By David Ponce

Allright, that’s it. This takes the cake. Making accessories for the iPod is so 2004. The new thing is making accessories for Skype. And, as far as I’m concerned, Yappernut is leading the crazy pack with the YapperMouse. Yeah, you can see this coming. It’s a mouse that doubles as a VoIP handset. Feel like making a call? Why look for your handset, or headset, when you can simply lift your arm and stick your mouse to your ear?

It even features a vibration mode, so you can make and take calls without waking the whole house (providing, of course, that you whisper after being connected). And, get this, it even has a hands-free, speaker mode. Right.

As a mouse, it’s a 800dpi optical wired version, and the whole thing costs a very reasonable $40.
