Weekend of May 11, 2018 – Hour 2

Tech News and Commentary

Dave and the team discuss Streetview AR, digital assistants helping people age in place, flying Ubers, Amazon being #1 in consumer electronics sales, Windows and phones, Comcast’s response to the AT&T merger, and more.



Penny in Windsor, Ontario listens on AM800 CKLW and asked: “I’m quadriplegic and have the use of one hand. I am very into gaming. I play World of Warcraft and Diablo 3. Since I am left-handed and can only use the mouse and rarely the keyboard unless I let go of the mouse, is there a better mouse than I have for left-handed. I’m using a Logitech. Don’t know the number but it has the side keys on both sides. It’s frustrating for me because when the mouse goes, there’s limited options to get another one that works for me.”

 

 

Penny, there are plenty of companies that make left handed mice, and many models have side buttons like the kind you want.

Depending on how you can most comfortably use your hand, you may appreciate something like an Evoulent VerticalMouse, as you can probably imagine, your hand rests on its side when you use it, rather than flat and parallel to the table.

Elecom also makes a left-handed mouse with side buttons and a built-in trackpad that you may find convenient if you want more options to move your cursor or characters around.

Azio makes what it calls an ambidextrous mouse, which may appeal to you because it has buttons on both sides that you can customize.

Those are all obscure names, but as a gamer, you must know Razer and they make several left-handed gaming mice.

 

Unfortunately, like you’ve discovered and confirmed over the years, most manufacturers focus heavily on the majority of users, and that majority is right-handed. Between you being left handed and wanting a gaming mouse with side buttons, you’re probably going to have to do some digging to find the perfect model that will fit your needs.
