Fun Friday Fact The Computer Mouse...
The computer mouse was formally invented by two boffins Douglas Engelbart and he was assisted by Bill English at Stanford University back in the 1960's. The first mouse was patented on the 17th November 1970. It was originally called "The X-Y Position Indicator for a Display System". Apple were credited for the first official mouse however as this prototype wasn't hugely successful.
