 Stanford Magazine > March/April 2002 > Feature Story > Mighty Mouse

 ATPM 11.09 - Review: Mighty Mouse
Most traditional two-button mice, such as the Kensington Pocket Mouse Pro Wireless that adorned my desk before the Mighty Mouse, have little buttons, or at least some form of touch feedback that lets you know if your index finger is straying too close to the middle finger.
That little raised line reinforces proper hand position and is sorely lacking from the new Mighty Mouse, with unfortunate occasional results, such as a right-click when you meant a left-, or even the infrequent center-click.

I had a mouse years ago that had one, but it was a bit stupid and more prone than the MM in getting dirty.
