Logitech gets into the vertical mouse game with the MX Vertical | Ars Technica
“Like most vertical mice, the MX Vertical is designed to be held as if you’re giving it a handshake rather than draping your hand over the top of it. The click buttons and scroll wheel are located on the right side of the mouse, which Logitech says is sloped at a 57-degree angle. There’s a large thumb rest on the device’s concave left side, and the sides themselves have a ridged rubber finish aimed at making the whole thing easier to grip.”

Open offices are as bad as they seem—they reduce face-to-face time by 70% | Ars Technica
“Tearing down walls and cubicles in offices may actually build up more barriers to productivity and collaboration, according to a new study.

“Employees at two Fortune 500 multinational companies saw face-to-face interaction time drop by about 70 percent, the use of email increase between 22 percent and 56 percent, and productivity slip after their traditional office spaces were converted to open floor plans—that is, ones without walls or cubicles that ostensibly create barriers to interaction. The findings, published recently in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B, suggest that removing physical dividers may, in fact, make it harder for employers to foster collaboration and collective intelligence among their employees.”
