Web Worker Daily asks:
Do we control the mice? or do the mice control us?
What a coincidence that I ran across this post today… I just picked up a Logitech Revolution MX this morning (my previous mouse was a Cordless Click Plus). I had a gift card, so I didn’t have to shell out the whole $99 for it, but it would have been worth it! Although I guess I kinda have a mouse fetish. Having an Office Depot on the corner near my house is like the neighborhood bar for an alcoholic.
The new shape with the little ledge under your thumb is really comfortable. I can’t imagine a mouse getting better than this except if I didn’t have to take my hands off the keyboard. For a long time I had ThinkPad laptops and used the little pointer stick, but one day my index finger started twitching and didn’t stop. I went to the doctor after a couple days of this and he told me to stop using the finger (try not using your index finger; it’s hard) for a while and get a good mouse. After that experience I was more receptive to people’s complaints about uncomfortable keyboards and mice.
