I ordered a new personal PC back in March(?) from Lenovo (discount 
overstock offering).  Everything shipped immediately but was delayed in 
transit, due to a "Live Entity" inspection hold placed on it by the US 
FDA.  The packing list included an item identified as "mouse" (it was 
right under the item "keyboard").  I'm waiting for nVidia or ATI to come 
out with a next-gen product named "Nuclear XForce" or "Plutonium 
Wonder".  :-)
