Who uses a mouse?
Authored by: Peter J Rogers on May 27, '03 07:17:39PM

A wacom tablet makes a mouse obsolete.
It does everything a mouse does and you can program shortcuts on it for whatever program you are in. You also have less movement then with mouse.
The addition of a software keyboard such as touchstrokes almost eliminates the keyboard.

Wacom tablets have been around for quite some time now, and haven't yet rendered the mouse obsolete. Tablets are a great product, for certain people. However, they aren't for everyone. Furthermore, they're quite expensive compared to mice.

Who uses a mouse? Use a tablet!

I agree with Peter! I have used the original Mac 512K mouse, MacPortable & Duo trackmarbles, an early 3" diag. ADB trackpad (forgot the manufacturer), Kensington TurboMouse (trackball), and PB G3 trackpad. I now use a Wacom Graphire tablet with pen, and I adore it! It is certainly the most natural pointing system I've ever used, and I love how easily I can get from one corner of my screen to the other, because of the absolute positioning a tablet gives you. Mice are too much work once you've experienced a Wacom.

I do wonder about that gesture pad you mention, though!
