I was going to buy a mouse today, I had got some money and had just enough to get a fair one. But my father said he had some old ones in the basement. So when I'm done with this I'm going to click the "Publish Post" button with a white logitech light sensor mouse.
Everybody who has a laptop uses a touch-pad. Even at home, on their desk, with a laptop that hasn't moved in the last 5 months, touch touch touch.
Personally, I like the mouse better. For the sole reason that it's better. I can play games better, draw better, write better, and most (mice?) have that thing where you can click the scroll and do the quick scroll thing.
What ever happened to the huge home computers with the mice and the loud fans and the blinking lights. What ever happened to screens that were bigger them my head in both mass and volume?
I guess they were naturally selected out. Everything is small now a days. It's good for MP3's I remember when I had to use a CD player. CD players where the height of public technology. And it was only 8 years ago when Steve Jobs put a lower case 'i'in front of 'pod' sold it as a MP3 player for you. Only years ago did things started get drastically small.
We wanted our own computers, we got them. We wanted more space on the computers, we got it. We wanted our computers to be portable, we got it. We wanted the computers to be lighter, we got it. We wanted our computers to go everywhere, we got it.
Face it world, what we want, we will get.
