The 6 Best Wireless Mice for 2022

Our pick

Logitech M720 Triathlon

The Triathlon is comfortable for a wide range of hand sizes, and it has six programmable buttons and long battery life.

Buying Options

*At the time of publishing, the price was $30.

Connection type: Bluetooth and wireless USB dongle

The Logitech M720 Triathlon can pair with, and quickly switch between, three devices via Bluetooth, or you can connect it via the included USB dongle. It also has six buttons that you can customize using Logitech’s Options software and a scroll wheel that toggles between ratcheted and smooth scrolling. And its single AA battery should last for two years, according to Logitech. But the Triathlon is contoured for right-handed mouse users—so it’s not ideal for lefties—and it doesn’t work on glass or mirrored surfaces.


Logitech M585 Multi-Device

The Logitech M585 Multi-Device is another comfortable wireless mouse with customizable buttons and long battery life, but

Lansingburgh boosts after-school programing

Learning doesn’t stop when the school bell rings at the end of the day. But districts across the country are struggling with the same problem — how do you provide after-school programming, on a budget?

Some districts, like the Lansingburgh Central School District, have found their answer in 21st Century grant funding provided by the federal government.

The grant provides $400,000 each year for five years. That has enabled Lansingburgh to offer afterschool programming for more than 70 students.

Antonio Abitabile, the superintendent of the Lansingburgh Central School District, believes the funding will also help keep students out of trouble.

“One of the things that it will do for us is provide a safer environment after school. As we know, kids are always looking for things to do after school,” says Abitabile.

Photography is one of the electives students can now participate in thanks to the grant funding. For many

Danville business owner teaches computer skills to those released from prison

Steve Barrow opened his computer repair and sales business on Franklin Turnpike nearly two years ago. But soon after starting up, he saw a need for teaching basic computer skills to those recently released from prison.

Barrow offers free one-on-one computer training at his store, Hammer Hill Computers, to help returning residents reenter society. Those who have been in jail or prison, especially after a lengthy sentence, will likely have trouble operating computers and navigating the Internet, Barrow said.

“If you’ve been in prison for 20 years, you’re not going to know Google,” he said during an interview at his business last week.

Barrow does not ask what his clients served time for. That’s beside the point.

“I don’t ask what they went in for,” he said. “It’s not my business.”

On average, he spends a total of about four hours instructing two people a week.

How to troubleshoot your computer peripherals

No matter how well you look after your computer, something is going to eventually go wrong. And the issue won’t always be the machine itself, but maybe something you’ve plugged into it.

Peripherals (mice, keyboards, gamepads, webcams, and printers) can sometimes be a pain—they might either stop working or cause problems with the hardware and the software on your computer.

But before you make a (potentially expensive) call to a tech support professional, try troubleshooting your gadget problem yourself. There are certain steps that can be helpful in all scenarios, and that may well get your hardware working properly again.

Do some testing

Before you troubleshoot any tech problem, you need to know exactly where the problem is. The best way to do this is to test your peripheral in another computer. Don’t skip this step—even if that means you have to go round to a friend or relative’s house

Stray modders are putting their own four-legged friends in the game

Stray is a game where you play as an adorable orange cat lad. Some of us—like deputy guides editor Lauren Aitken (opens in new tab)—are luckily enough to already have the protagonist resemble one of our four-legged friends. For others, the desire to have their own fur babies represented is mighty strong.

As spotted by Imogen Donovan (opens in new tab), a quick glance at Nexus Mods and you’ll be met with an entire litter of reskins made to resemble either the modder’s own pets or to fulfil requests on behalf of other players who want their cat in-game. It’s absolutely bloody adorable and has opened the game to a whole variety of fuzzy friends. There are tuxedo cats, calicoes, and even adorable sphynxes! Some, like this gorgeous grey domestic cat (opens in new tab), have been made to honour pets who passed away. I’m not crying,

Can Google’s new Carbon programing language may replace C++ in the coming days?

Carbon was unveiled this week at the “CPP North” C++ conference in Toronto by Google Principal Software Engineer Chandler Carruth. This brand-new programming language in development aims to transform C++ codebases more effectively than Rust. Experts claim that Rust lacks the same degree of two-way interoperability as other technologies, which creates a sort of language barrier when converting between various programming languages.

The Long-Term Relationship Between Programming Languages and Google

Google has developed a number of programming languages over the years, some of which have gained significant notoriety and prominence. As an illustration, Golang (or just Go) was developed to facilitate the creation of servers and distributed systems and has since been embraced by the general public.

The Dart programming language, which was first meant to serve as a JavaScript substitute, didn’t gain widespread acceptance until the release of Flutter.

What distinguishes Carbon from other materials now?

Because of its
