Ideal input device

slated in consumed at 5:55 pm

Aside from the keyboard; rather than a traditional mouse, trackball, thumb trackball, or IBM-style trackpoint, or laptop-common trackpad; we should be using multi-touch trackpads, perhaps with click buttons and a trackpoint built into it. The multi-touch trackpad would allow to do the same things as any of our usual devices, in addition to touchscreen-style and tablet functions. I’m waiting.

Not the same thing, but I still don’t understand why the c-pad (from way back in the day.. late 90s?) didn’t become more common; it was really spiffy and handy.

This comes up because I am trying my hand (hehe. sorry. that was an accident, really.) at using a thumb-trackball, in hopes that it will be kinder to my hand. I wonder how long it will take me to get used to it.

Btw, finally practicing holding my pend differently/“properly”. It’s about as miserable as trying to write neatly with my left hand. Currently near-impossible. But practice and consistency, right?
