Also, all electronics now are made in foreign countries. Even Zenith, the only American company, was bought out by LG a few years back.

I know that there aren't any made in the U.S, I just want to know if any are manufactured outside of China. That would include several countries, including Taiwan, Malaysia, Japan, and South Korea. I have found keyboards manufactured in those nations, but I haven't found any mice manufactured anywhere but China. I find it difficult to believe that all the computer mice in the world are made in China.

Probably made with the Cuban technique and not sold out of Cuba as the embargo prohibits.

Okay, I'm just saying that I know that there must be computer mice manufactured outside of China. All the computer mice in the world can't possibly be made in one country.

About the babies thing: That's probably not true. The Chinese are actually trying to control their birth rate by insisting on abortions for non-male firstborn children. I'm not saying that that's wrong, just that it makes it unlikely that most babies are made there.

Mice are made in every "foreign" country.

I know Microsoft uses China and Mexico
Logitech uses China

Also, mice arent made in Japan. Japan is turning very expensive for labor.

The very narrow view point is, it is cheaper for us to buy a 'mouse' made in china and pay $3 less through their cheap labour.
