Re: Cure for repetitive stress?

Interesting perspective on this, 78RPM. Indeed, there is a lot of time lost not to mention stress on joints and muscles induced by products that don't take into consideration ergonomics!

Good comment on the ergonomic benefit, Elizabeth. Here's another ergonomic benefit. When my right hand leaves the keyboard to access my mouse, I have to return and make my index finger find the little bump on the J key (I'm a touch typist).  Think of all the lost seconds in my career I have lost by doing this. This device means I never have to lose tactile sense of the keyboard.

Oh, gee, I wonder if it's possible to get a thumb cramp.

It's a good question, Rob. But I think there is still a use for a mouse in precision editing work, e.g., audio and video and photography. As you can tell from my handle (78RPM) I edit sound recordings of my huge 78RPM record collection going back to 1895.  I also edit photos and drawings at the individual pixel level. For these applications, I need an accurate pointer. I just can't do this on a tablet because my fingertip is too big. Old fashioned I am, but I think the mouse and PC/Mac have some good years in their old age.

More like an easy way for everyone to cheat. Most kids I know do not seem to be the technical type. It seems every child thinks they will become the next big entertainer or artist.

On the flip side, most engineering grads I know can not find jobs. They are all out of the country.

Sad state of affairs, indeed.

Good idea, Cabe. If school were delivered via a smart phone, it would hold the attention of high schoolers and mid schoolers.

Shouldn't they be busy with homework and studies, not their phone?

Perhaps school should take place entirely on their phones too... good idea... PATENT PENDING!!!

I agree, Cabe. I think audio ads would be weak. For one, a good portion of the Facebook audience accesses the site during high school and mid school classes.

I read that facebook is switching to audio ads for mobile platforms. They will even be interactive.

I would hate that immediately.

I agree, Cabe. So far, it seems noboy has come up with a way to tap this market effectively. Where's the Adwords for mobile? I don't see it yet.

I have never seen a single mobile ad that got me to say, "hey I need that." The industry should really wake up to reality.
