What's this newfangled "mouse" you speak of? – As we hear collective whines about the new iPad, we'd like to take you back to a time where there were no iPads–or "i" anythings. The year was 1984,¬†and the computer mouse made its debut on the world stage. It was large, clunky and had one giant clicker. Also making an appearance in this video, our old friend the floppy disk.

Gotta Watch: Mad otter dead; intense storms in Southeast

Mad otter found dead - You may remember the first reports of otter attacks a few weeks ago when a dog was bitten by an aggressive otter. This story raised some eyebrows considering the generally friendly nature of these creatures. But then came a string of other reports that several people had been bitten.

Hard proof of this strange crime came of course in the form of a teen's cell phone video as he is chased by one very aggressive otter. Naturally, this video went viral. If you're looking for the famous mad otter, however, you may be out of luck. It was reportedly found dead in a lake.
