There was time, like a year ago, when CES was all about cool gadgets. Not any more – take this latest gizmo from Sony Japan. Its a hybrid mouse and a voip phone. Aka Mouse Talk. Plug-into the USB port of any Windows PC (not Mac of course!) and you can use it as a mouse. When there is an incoming call, the LED blinks, flip the mouse, talk like you would on a flip phone. Shut it, and go back to using a mouse. The gizmo is called Mouse Talk, and will be available in Japan, for about $65 in five colors. I hope my pals at Kemplar.com bring it state side.
