Here’s an idea that has long been overdue! Thanks to Webpads, I have finally found a mouse pad worth sitting on my desk that goes beyond a cool picture or cartoon character.

Webpads is a regular mousepad with a clear LEXAN cover that your mouse (very smoothly!) rolls over. It’s also a breeze to keep clean, which is very important to any naughty smoker who has an ashtray sitting right next to the mouse pad. (Can you say “Mouse cleaning every week?”) Well, up to the time when MicroVisionComputer Products sent me a Webpad for review, I was going through a pad every few months. They get dirty, wears out, etc… But this LEXAN cover is easy to wipe clean.

The LEXAN is clear, and here’s where Webpads really takes an everyday idea and makes it better. Underneath the cover, there is a paper grid you can write on. Keep your phone numbers, URLs, or whatever right there, and they will always be at your fingertips. (Or at least under them!)

If I sound like a commercial, I apologize. See, I really like this product, and cannot imagine going back and using a regular mousepad again. This is a really good idea, one I am sure will sell well.

Need a new mouse pad? Hey, for less than ten bucks, you can’t go wrong!
