I come in there often enough that they could ask me to let
them know what I find, but they're not interested. When they
find, at the cost of customer agravation, that both their
LabTec wireless optical mice don't work and will not work
for any future customers, they have no interest in the info.

In the absence of any other store, I'll go back, but they
could improve at little or no cost to them.
