Why the double mouse pads? Also, is that an optical mouse?

That looked like my work a few minutes ago, except I was watching the time trials on a 60" TV.

I was surprised at how slow they go...I always thought they held 35-40mph all the way through, but really it was 18-28mph for most of them. I know it's for an hour at a time, though. But, hey, I can sustain 15-18mph on a hybrid with 85 pounds of kids in a trailer, on flat ground for 30 minutes at a time. Maybe I should get a $12,000 bike and try out for the Olympics in the Burley-pulling event!

It looks like a Microsoft optical mouse (I bought one for my wife that has the exact shape of red on the back).

Yes it is, I like it better than the Apple mouse that came with it.
