No matter; Garter analyst Steve Prentice reckons that their final days will come in the next 3-5 years.

Al W Uncategorized Leave a Comment

IceRage is a company that isn’t shy with its adjectives. Their press kits use word like ‘Fashioneering’, and ‘Magnificent’ – really not bad for a company that makes mice. And the first of these has been christened ‘The Ultimate Pocket Mouse’. What could possibly have earned it this accolade?
