Spawned in the horrendous heat of a Los Angeles winter, James was born with an incessant need to press buttons. Whether it was the car radio, doorbells on Halloween or lights, James pushed, pressed and prodded every button. No elevator was left unscathed, no building intercom was left un-rung, and no person he’s known has been left un-annoyed.

  1. I'm having a hard time getting used to this mouse. While I like what it does in Windows, with all the touch gestures, I absolutely HATE that there's no middle button, and no way to re-map the “back/forward” thumb gesture to something else (like MIDDLE BUTTON, perhaps?) — I play games on my PC, and I don't want to switch mice to play a game. However, many games rely on the middle button for functions (such as camera control, reload, etc.) and eliminating a button on this $80 mouse doesn't make much sense to me when it ends up crippling my games. 

    This is awesome for office work, but crap for gaming. MS should have given us the option to remap, or add a middle click function.

  2. Great review!! You can actually go to 
    Control Panel> Ease of Access> Change How Your Mouse Works
     scroll down, and mark the check box “Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse”
    Then windows are activated and brought to front on mouse hover.
