Best invention in the last ten years
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
