After years of research, scientists have discovered that women do not like the standard mouse given away with PC's. Scientists found that there is not a physical reason for their aversion; It is more of a Psychological problem.
Some women reported that their mouse 'just didn't feel right' in their hands. Based on the research, a new mouse has been designed especially for women.
Various field tests have been carried out on the new design:
Julie from Hounslow said:-
'It feels so much better. More comfortable, more like how it's supposed to be'
Susan from Chelmsford added:-
'I think mice were originally designed just for men, but this new type is definitely made for women. It fits right in with my lifestyle'
Hillary from Kent :said -
'I took to it like a duck to water, every woman should have one'!
Sally From London Said –
“It feels so natural”
