    i think i agree with the last sentence of that article.

    It sounds like it will annoy and get in the way.

      I saw it, the problem is they seem to think they can replace buttons with Wii like hand gestures.

      too indefinite. I have not liked Apple mice since the one button mouse in, what was it, 1986?

        well, here is the thing.
        I think this is very simple, but you cant rest your 2 fingers on the mouse without having a button clicked now, right?

          Neat idea, but as was said with other posters, a 2 button and mousewheel can do the same thing. I do not see what advantage it is to have a touchpad top UNLESS they make it so you CAN make 15 buttons on its top.

          If they find a way to make your own button template and apply the ridges yourself, they might have something worth looking at.

          The only other problem is that with a mouse, you rest your finger on the mouse and depress the button. This looks like it will activate on touch, so you need to either re-touch the button area or NOT touch it until you need it. Not as ergonomic as it could be.

          Again, interesting, but too minimalist for the $$
