Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Macs and the 1-button mouse.

The most annoying thing about my Mac (G4 Titanium Powerbook) is that it only has 1-button on it's built-in mouse. This is especially annoying because I can plug in a two-button mouse and it is recognized and usable by OS X. Why didn't they include a 2-button mouse by default? My wife (a very savvy Windows user) hates it so much she refuses to use my laptop.

This morning, I found an article (via MyAppleMenu) about Apple's history with the one button mouse and the possible move to a 2-button mouse.

So while Apple’s decision to go with a single button was one of the many choices that made the original Mac such a groundbreaking machine, it’s time for Apple to reconsider.

Longtime Mac devotees may disagree, but an official Apple two-button, scroll wheel-equipped mouse has, in fact, no apparent drawbacks. [1 Button, 2 Or 3?]
