Noticed among the press releases in the inbox, "Microsoft Celebrates the
20th Anniversary of the Mouse".
In a nice bit of equivocation, the spinners blur the distinction between
"the mouse" and "the Microsoft mouse" (which is the thing that really

leading to how many variants of "20th anniversary of the mouse" headlines
