Punch Mouse

Do you want to send microsoft an error report Y/N?
  [vote for,

Internalised anger is a bad thing. Just as there is, in my humble opinion, no easy way to slam your mobile phone down on someone who's annoying you, so there is no satisfactory way to click your mouse angrily.

Next time your vitally important project is lost due to a software glitch, make sure you take your frustrations out on your Punch Mouse. Attached to your PC via a USB connector, the punch mouse consists of two sensitive punch bags, one green and one red, secured to a robust frame.

So when the annoying message "Do you want to send Microsoft an error report Y/N?" you can give the green or red punch bag a frustration alleviating smack.

       Yes, it whiffs a bit of rant, but I like it.[+]

       Rant? Nope, I've internalised that....

       Funnily enough [Ian], I wrote almost that exact sentence in the original idea, but deleted it for fear of ranting. Strange.

       I want one now!

       I click my mouse angrily all the time... :P Bunny.

       Since I snapped the motherboard and broke the keyboard of my laptop by beating it with a coffee mug, I have been thinking along these very lines.   

       However, I also had the idea of making the computer say 'OW!' when you punched it, and possibly begging for mercy.

       [pooduck] Heh Heh. I wish my computer did what you mentioned in the last line.
I've had to try and remember which key went where after they popped out from abuse.
