Wouldn't it be kool

Post  old tech on Fri Aug 13, 2010 2:37 am

If your mouse had NO.1 a small wheel just ahead of your thumb that would change the cursor speed so you wouldn't have to go into the program.

NO.2 a little wheel on the other side that would move the cursor without moving the mouse so you wouldn't have to pick up your mouse to move the cursor a long distance.

No.3 wouldn't it be nice if the shift key on the keyboard would stay upper till the next key is taped. That way you could type with one finger say the next word had to be capitalized you could tap the shift key hit the first letter then it would automatically drop back to lower case all with only one finger.

No.4 Wouldn't it be nice if your keyboard had a couple of programmable keys so you could program one with your email address. tap one key and it would print your email address or whatever you wanted something you used a lot.

Don't most keyboards have at least 12 programmable keys (not including using the Ctrl & Alt keys Smile?

The Logitech Trackman Marble FX pretty much has those "mouse capabilities", that's why the ancient [discontinued] critters go for several times more used than what they cost new.

My - for quite a few years - favorite mouse
