I think Hazydave may have a good point.
I am reluctant to pay for this mouse because I think it may be just as bad as touchpads are for laptops. I really hate them because unless you are very careful, those touchpads do all kinds of things you never intended. You have to keep your fingers well away from the touch surface which leads to a great deal of discomfort for me. Then you have to act with precision if you want to be sure of the correct response. No, I think that touchpads that do anything other than track the cursor are a very bad idea and I always disable those by using a plug-in mouse. I think the same problem will arise with the touch mouse. I can only imagine great agony as you work on your computer always straining to hold your fingers exactly the right distance and position from the mouse surface. I will be trying it eventually but I am far from optimistic that it has any real value other than "nice toy".
