Actually, it will reduce CTS. Read this: http://ohsonline.com/Articles/2004/0...ng.aspx?Page=1
It would be especially useful for you. One cursor spread across all those displays isn't as efficient as having two cursors, is it?

Am I missing something? because that article seemed to be about using two mouses to control one cursor. having two separate cursors would increase work load to both hands, because it would create more unnecessary movement.

It's pointless if you ask me.

It wouldn't help me at all. I have my mouse sensitivity set so that moving from one side of the mousepad to the other will move the cursor from ane side of the desktop to the other.

and I use a gyro mouse when I feel like multitasking a lot. all I do is turn in the chair and the cursor follows.

There is no potential.

I disagree. There is potential for winning the dumbest idea award.

Been using my Sony VAIO more often lately. Wondering if I should upgrade it with a SSD hard drive. Problem is that this specific series is extremely hard to service.

There is nothing that can compare with servicing an iBook G4. Apple clearly intended to make it impossible to work on, so only their authorized repair people would feel safe enough to touch it.

Adding a swapfile to my iphone - worth it or not?

It barely counts as a phone. Every other call gets dropped.

The Extremely small amount of RAM makes it hard to multitask more than internet radio and a browser.

tetris for iPhone - worst control scheme ever. The blocks only rotate 90 degrees, and only in one direction. How do they expect anyone to play like that?
