Specs at a glance: Logitech Lift Sensor Optical (model not disclosed) Connectivity options Bluetooth Low Energy, 2.4 GHz wireless dongle Programmable buttons 4 Onboard profiles 0 Lighting None Size 4.25 x 2.76 x 2.8 inches
(108 x 70 x 71 mm) Weight 0.28 lb (125 g) Warranty 1 year Price (MSRP)  $70

With shockingly tall stature and non-traditional curves, vertical mice require some adjustment to use. But the purported payoff, if you're to believe mouse-makers, is greater arm, wrist, and hand comfort due to a more natural hand position.

But like any ergonomic peripheral, you won't reap any benefits if you don't get used to the device. Logitech is one of the biggest names in vertical mice, thanks to the MX Vertical, one of the most feature-rich vertical mice on the market. The Logitech Lift wireless mouse isn't as feature-rich, but it's more inviting due to a smaller build targeting small to medium-sized hands, a left-handed option, and more colors.

These options make it easier to find a good fit, which is critical in ergonomics. And despite having a hand size appropriate for both the Lift and MX Vertical, I found the Lift easier to grasp while navigating its side buttons than any other vertical mice I've used.

A federal judge in Florida on Monday struck down the Biden administration's mask mandate for public transit and travel hubs.

The abrupt ruling throws passenger requirements into tumult when Americans are resuming pre-pandemic travel levels and while cases of the omicron subvariant BA.2 have begun ticking upward.

It's unclear if or when the Department of Justice will appeal the judge's order and seek a stay to reinstate the mandate until the matter is litigated further. According to the latest reports, administration officials confirmed that the mandate is no longer in place, though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still recommends the use of masks on public transit. The administration is said to be reviewing the next steps.
