Convergence is a good thing. But as your mom may have told you, you can have too much of a good thing. She also may have told you that just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should do it.
This sage advice applies to the Thanko USB mouse and speaker combination. The mouse connects to your PC via USB. The speaker’s 3.5mm input jack apparently splices into the USB cable. The speaker also has a built-in microphone.
The alleged convergence Nirvana is that now you don’t need external speakers or a microphone. Instead, you just use the speaker and microphone on the mouse, which you need anyway. Of course, when you use the mouse, your hand will block its speaker. And it’s questionable how well you will be heard while speaking into a moving mouse microphone. But hey, as your mom also may have told you, it isn’t a perfect world.
