A bunch of cunts, mostly in the Australian sense. Except that one guy.

Best invention in the last ten years

My vote is for the wheel on the computer mouse.

Looks like the mouse wheel was invented more than ten years ago:

OK, 1995, but fanboy is right.

Mousewheel is very very important.

What sucks is most mice have only 3 buttons. 5 is the minimal I need.

I think 10 years is usually too little time for a discovery to reach the mass market. Flash memories for me (1980), but e-paper is also cool (1970) -- I haven't been so excited about a new gadget for years.

Thanks for the link, Kenny.  Good article.

They did hit my worst pet peeve though. Mixing up then/than. Arrg!  "Designed more to match the sensuous curves of the groundbreaking iMac then to address any ergonomic concerns..."

I think a mouse should have an entire keyboard integrated where the two mouse buttons are now.

With some tiny mousebuttons somewhere between

ER
DF

and

IO
KL
