If Apple and Microsoft have their way, computer mice will go the way of the floppy disk. Apple's newest OS, Lion, and Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 both put a strong emphasis on users using their fingers to interact with their computers. Makes sense then that Logitech decided to drop the Touchpad.

Just like Apple's Magic Trackpad, the Touchpad is a standalone trackpad that can be connected to desktop PCs inleu of a traditional mouse. The Touchpad supports two, three, and four-finger gestures, with touch buttons for application switching. It connects to a PC using Logitech's Unifying USB Receiver, so it won't clutter your desk.

According to Logitech, the Touchpad will hit stores sometime this month for $50.
