    Question Mice or Mouses?

    [list=1][*]It's Mice[*]It's Mouses[*]I really think it's Micey's[/list=1]

    Actually I really think it's mouses because we are talking about the computer type. Also, a mouse is a name of an invention, so if we have more than 1 then we would call it mouses. The word for the biological type would be Mice.

    Mice is the plural of mouse.

    Since we call a singular computer mouse a mouse, then more than one of them would be refered to as mice....

    It depends, are these optical 'mice' or good old-school 'mice'? The rubber-ball ones are mice, the optical ones are Borg. I use an old-school mouse and I'm dang proud of it! I'll add in my own LED, dangit!

    Is that what those are called?...i just bought a Borg...it's acutally more of a 7of9 Borg...it doesn't have a wire connecting it to anything... I have just lost myself in ST terminology, sigh...
