Interesting, new Razer Mice are spying on you as you use them.

I thought this deserved a cross-post from overclock.net. Since a lot of people come to this forum asking for mouse recommendations, and since this forum is full of people who hate DRM and data-mining, this should be an interesting read.

I suggest you read the entire first post, as he updates it several times. The bit about data-mining is toward the bottom.

  1. Well goody I prefer 3 button mice and hate all the other finicky stuff that comes with those 80+ mice. Never had to install any drivers for the mouse to work.

    Thanks for the post casualcolors, good find indeed. I bet if this gets out on facebook or twitter razer is going to have a major rage on their hands.
  2. Glad I've never bought any Razer products, and from the looks of it now, never will either.

    I have to agree. If nothing else it's a good way for Razer to breed out any incentive to try one of their Naga mice.
  4. I'm a little surprised Toms hasn't run an article on this yet. Even Ars Technica has already published a story.
