FUN FACT: What is the origin the "mouse"?

Did you know?

The first computer mouse invented by Douglas Engelbart in 1964 was initially called an “X-Y Position Indicator for a Display System.” The term “mouse” was coined because the cord attached to the device resembled a tail, and it made the on-screen cursor “scurry” around, similar to a mouse. This naming choice laid the foundation for one of the most iconic computer peripherals in history.
