Yo for real these MouseRugs are decidedly straight tech gauche crack. Yeah, I just made up a brand new genre of product. Woz, get at me, breh. Products that are cheap as shit, but attempt to look fancy are kind of the wave as long as we're not talking about garments. I don't even think anyone still uses mouse pads anymore, but at this point uselessness is not a good argument for why you don't want to buy something. Plus, if you're even considering buying a mouse pad that looks like a Persian rug, chances are you're no where even remotely near buying a real Persian rug anyway.
