Inventor Of The Computer Mouse Dies At 88

Seriously, where would we be if this guy didn't invent the mouse? frown

After applying for a patent to cover the device in 1967, Engelbart first demoed an initial prototype of what we now consider the standard PC mouse peripheral at a computer conference in San Francisco in 1968. U.S. Patent No. 3541541 was later granted in 1970.
