What's the number one medical condition associated with using computers? Carpal tunnel syndrome. Which hand is most often affected? the right hand. Why? Using a mouse. What is better to use, easier to operate, and faster? TRACKBALL. You don't wrap your hand around it. You don't move your upper arm. You don't move your lower arm. You don't have to pick it up. You just move one finger and zoom your cursor across the screen from one side to the other in one smooth uninterupted motion. You don't need a pad surface underneath it. You can put it anywhere. You can get a lot more done a lot faster with a trackball. Why after a decade of internet do people still use a mouse? There are a lot of computer dummies out there.
