Improve your desk setup with a giant mousepad

Improve your desk setup with a giant mousepad

Special guest Alan Henry, editor of Smarter Living at The New York Times, shares his favorite desk accessory. It’s a mouse mat, which is basically a super-sized mouse pad. Alan tells you why a mouse mat is a great addition to any desk, and why his features SOME of the moons of jupiter, but not all.

You can find Alan’s mouse mat from Novel Keys here:

For other desk mats with other prints and solid colors, Alan recommends searching on Amazon or other retailers that carry PC accessories. Be sure to search for “mouse mat” as opposed to “desk pad,” which may turn up results that aren’t suited to mousing.

If you have a favorite desk pad or mouse mat that you’d like to recommend, leave it in the comments below!

    Is the control good on this pad?

    When looking for a desk pad, make sure it has stitching around the edges. The Novelkeys mats are particularly good as they are bit thicker than most. One side benefits of a desk pad is that it will dampen the noise of a keyboard, particularly mechanical keyboards. It will not make Blues quite, but it will muffle the clack from Browns and Reds.

    I see a bunch of NovelKeys designs I would buy, but they’re sold out. I hope they bring back the NASA and brown Woodgrain pads!

    I wish my desk was clean enough to fit one of these.
