Hardware, Embedded Systems One button, two buttons, three buttons, ten million buttons. Beige, black, white, red with polka dots. Glow-in-the-dark, see through. Right-handed, left-handed, both. Vertical for RSI patients, trackballs for weirdoes like myself, Apple's puck mouse for sado-masochists. The ubiquitous mouse comes in all possible shapes, forms, sizes, and colours, but according to our friend The Analyst, the glorious age of the mouse is coming to and end. Do we believe The Analyst?

I agree completely with you. I also have problems using a mouse (but my main problem is clicking), so I combine the keyboard, a touchpad and a mouse. I think a good tracking device has to be integrated in the keyboard: maybe a trackball to the right and an array of programmable buttons to the left or something. My old Toshiba laptop had a trackpoint, but touchpads are a lot better in my experience.
