In terms of hardware evolution, in 10 years we've improved a lot in processors, monitors, video cards, and many other examples.

In the other hand, the mouse is pretty the same we got 10 years ago.

Is there a reason for that ??

Can you think of any improvements that would actually work? – ChrisF Apr 5 '12 at 18:58
well, touch i guess. that is why apple stock is so high :-) – johnshen64 Apr 5 '12 at 19:00
But will the touch kill the mouse ? I am not sure of that. I think the trackball was an excellent invention, but I should be the only one who enjoyed it. – Diogo the noob Apr 5 '12 at 19:03
@Diogothenoob: Are you still using a ball mouse? – Tom Wijsman Apr 5 '12 at 19:05
Mouse have improved in terms of material, ergonomy, sensor technology, aditional buttons, but in essence they are pretty the same. I am using a laser one, but I think you get the point. – Diogo the noob Apr 5 '12 at 19:06

Because it's pretty much as efficient/improved as it can get.

There are some improvements, such as infrared sensing and wireless, but otherwise, the mouse is very good at what it does.

Serously, can you think of any useful improvements to it that haven't been already implemented?

I cant think of any improvements, but this does not mean that improvements could not be done, think of it. – Diogo the noob Apr 5 '12 at 19:10
@ topic, the trackball was an interesting stuff – Diogo the noob Apr 5 '12 at 19:23
