Earlier this week, I wrote a review of the recently updated BetterSnapTool, comparing it to my previous review of Divvy. I realized in writing these posts that one of the main reasons I’ve gravitated toward using these two tools is that I work almost entirely on a laptop. Since I don’t regularly use a mouse, cutting down on clicking and dragging has a real effect on how my body feels when working.
While we regularly write about wellness here at ProfHacker, I haven’t been able to find any threads on mice, trackpads, trackballs, or other pointing tools. So for this open thread Wednesday, I want to ask: how do you interact with your computer’s pointing interface? Do you have a favorite piece of hardware? Do you schlep it along with you when traveling? Let us know in the comments!
