MultiButton Mice

I got a new mouse that has all these handy dandy buttons on it.

going from a 1 button mouse and the open apple key to an 11 button mouse is crazy, but on the plus side, the mouse functions as a remote control as well.

for most apple programs, the key mapping is the same, so in itunes, the buttons play/pause and cycle through tracks. in safari, they go forward and backward pages. in the pdf viewer they flip pages.

its super fun but not terribly essential. i dont see using it much after the novelty value goes away, really.

are any of youall purists with your pointing devices? still using adb? my beau likes a trackball, i dont like them so much. do any of youall have those special super everquest crackwhore keyboards that sort of wrap around your fingers?
