The Logitech MX Revolution (left) has been called, “The World’s Most Advanced Mouse!” by Logitech as well as many other third party reviewers such as myself. I’m inclined to agree to with them even after just a couple of weeks with the mouse.
I bought the MX Revolution refurbished off of eBay because I really don’t feel like spending $80 on a new mouse. Even if it was going to Revolutionize my mousing. I ended up getting a fairly decent deal on it and purchased it (refurbished) for $40.
Honestly, would I say the functionality of the MX Revolution justifies it’s steep price. Yes! I would. It’s many buttons, dual wheels, and fancy look, as well as ergonomic design definitely justifies it. There are so many buttons on the thing that I still haven’t found a use for around 3 of them yet! The mouse if obviously built for right-handed people and as such it works perfectly for me.
I’m primarily an Ubuntu user and as such was expecting to be given a hard time by Logitech. However, I was pleasantly surprised when everything just worked. I love the charger and the lithium-ion battery is amazing. I only have to charge it once a week.
Needless to say, I’m very, very impressed with what Logitech has come up with and will continue to be a user.
As part of my summer reading work this year, I had to read Lord of the Flies by William Golding. The book begins with a bunch of boys crash landed on a deserted island. It’s kind of confusing in the beginning as it doesn’t state why the boys landed on the island and seems to rush at times. However after the first couple of chapters, the story line begins to make a lot of sense and you understand who the characters are and why they are there.
The book portrays people who are educated, young, and have the potential to become gentlemen. It shows that even the best/worst of us can’t handle a stressful situation for a long time. Slowly, all of the boys begin to go a little insane till they start attacking and even killing each other in a fight for survival. It shows how the basic neaderthal structure still exists within all humans even today and it just takes a little push to throw perfectly well civilized people off the deep end into the throws of chaos, confusion, and savagery. The sad part is that the Britesh Naval Officers who rescue them don’t understand that the boys are going insane and they continue to believe it’s just a game concocted by the boys to wile away the time.
Setting: World War II, Deserted Island, Around 1940
Main Characters: Ralph, Piggy, SamnEric, Jack, Simon
Overall: 4/5 – Would have gotten 5 if it wasn’t as vague in the beginning.
