December 4th, 2008, 12:54 PM
I were looking in the Ubuntu store when i found a Christmas gift for a friend, actually i found two.

1. Ubuntu Vase Speaker - https://shop.canonical.com/product_info.php?products_id=137

2. Recycled Wireless Mouse - https://shop.canonical.com/product_info.php?products_id=248

Know i thought that the price were okay, or rather they were fair and i want to support Ubuntu so i thought about buying them but then i googled it for fun to find more specifications about them but then googled showed up these two

1. Google Icon Vase Speaker - http://www.google-store.com/product_info.php?products_id=258

2. Recycled Mini Wireless Mouse - http://www.google-store.com/product_info.php?products_id=398

and to tell the truth it seems as if its the same thing, but i just wanted to know if it is and then buy the Ubuntu stuff because i love em or should i buy them because they are better and i love them.

fwiw, i just recieved my wireless mouse from the ubuntu store. i probably should have paid closer attention, but i'm surprised at how mini-mini this is. if you're older than 10, you will likely prefer a larger mouse. most of the wireless 'mice' i see in the stores that are labeled 'laptop' or 'notebook' and are clearly smaller than standard ones are still significantly larger than this trinket.
