Instead of replacing your current KB and mouse which are working fine with $100 brand new Logitech gear, you can alternatively spend from $5 to $20 for a USB hub.

I'm confused...  Isn't this exactly what Bluetooth touted to be able to do ages ago?  Now I only see it being used for cell phones and some light data transfers...

Bluetooth transfer rate is pretty pathetic compared to USB.

 For data. But for keyboards, mice, and headsets it's perfect...

Seriously, what's stopping them from making these compatible with the old mice?

Long time coming I'd say, even though computers come with a good number of ports nowadays.

yea, a lot of companies BUNDLE the keyboard and mouse together to connect through one dongle.

this tech allows the user to PICK a keyboard and a mouse and connect through one dongle. this way people can have the keyboard AND mouse they want. Some bundles have a really nice keyboard...but a crappy mouse..or vise-versa.
