Ok, the article was badly phrased.

The is a Bluetooth mouse. It uses NFC only to make the initial Bluetooth pairing easy (a.k.a. Secure Simple Pairing).

It is NOT a mouse that uses NFC as its primary data communication. Since most NFC devices have a range of a few inches, such a mouse would have to be rubbed _on_ the laptop like you were applying suntan lotion.

I thought this article would explain what NFC is when i clicked on it. Okay, now I know it means Near Field Technology...

...in other words I still have absolutely no idea what NFC is.
maybe less time listing product SKUs and more time explaining things??

thanks
:/
