Microsoft celebrating Year of the Dragon with mice — and a theme

WindowsLunarNewYear.jpgMonday marks the start of the Lunar New Year — the beginning of the Year of the Dragon — in China, Vietnam and other countries.

YearOfDragonWirelessMobileMouse.jpgMicrosoft marks the event with a free, downloadable Windows 7 Chinese New Year theme from Bing (one of the images in the theme is shown above).

The company has also released a Year of the Dragon Arc Touch Mouse. The mouse — which flattens for easier travel and curves up for use — joins the earlier announced artist edition Year of the Dragon Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 (shown at right).
