It would not have been called a mouse at that time :-\ bcuz its shape is not like that of a mouse.
Whereas today, the mouse used in PCs is called mouse bcuz it has the shape of a mouse.
Then what name should have been given to the first 'so called mouse' used in PC. :rollseyes

It looks like a tape recorder though. haha :lol:

You mean they used to call it as mouse? I wonder from where they came up with that name at that time, what made them think to give that name. :rollseyes
