Even though it is not Friday,

Someone at work thinks that writing mice to refer to many mouse
devices is wrong. (doesn't sound right)
one writer here thinks that mice is the correct plural for computer
mouse devices.
The microsoft manual of style prefers to refer to mouse devices for
the plural, which sounds logical to me

What do you consider correct use for the plural of computer mouse.
