cylonlover writes "With the plethora of mouse alternatives available or in development you'd be forgiven for thinking the humble computer mouse was some kind of torturous device inflicted upon computer users. But despite a multitude of challengers, the mouse has maintained its dominance while remaining largely unchanged since its unveiling in 1968. Now there's another alternative cursor relocation device set to hit the market called the evoMouse that turns just about any flat surface into a virtual trackpad with your finger as the pointer."

    Yes this works for you. For me I would rather stab myself in the eyes than use a trackball. That means that the demand for this product will be non-zero and thus it can potentially be sold for profit. So that is the point of the evomouse to be sold for profit to people who are not you.

    My mother is 84 and has many problems with her wrists., So i bought her a Logitech trackman marble. she loves it, now she uses the computer more and doesnt end up in pain. I love mine, because i dont have to drag it all over the desk to use the computer, and when i am doing work that requires delicacy i can position the pointer, then remove my fingers from the ball and click, (how many times have you moved the mouse a fraction as you clicked), So for me, a trackball is ideal. Its not for everyone, and for those who say "if a trackball is so good why doesnt every one use them ?"unfortunately , like VHS vs Beta, Like Microsoft VsLinux, or Microsoft Vs Mac, Just because more people use something it is not necessarily better, just more common.
