July 2, 2013, America lost engineer and inventor Douglas Carl Engelbart. The computer mouse was Mr. Engelbart’s invention with a patent filed in 1967 and granted in 1970.

Inventors are innately and unfairly gifted as compared to the rest of us. Rarely do they invent one unique item to move on with their careers. Mr. Engelbart’s legacy has left us with 21 unique patents and development of hypertext.

Rest in peace Doug Engelbart.

Yesterday, British Scientist, Professor Ralph Benjamin, 90, residing in Bristol, England, claimed invention of the computer mouse too, described as a cursor which could be controlled on a display screen using a “mouse-like” instrument.

Question mark.

Thank you, TiA
