Not a contortionist

I have a new mouse.

We've mostly been getting along just fine. The scroll ball is delightfully low-key, and hopefully won't inflame the back of my hand. (This is why I stopped using scroll wheel mice a few years ago.)

Squeezing the sides of the mouse kicks off Exposé - a wonderful way of switching between windows. Unfortunately doing this while simultaneously pressing the mouse button is a horrible experience. (You might do this to drag something between two windows.)

I've tried touching different parts of the device and applying varying amounts of pressure but generally end up using the keyboard short-cut instead.

It's early days though. Perhaps I'll find the magic spot. Perhaps Apple will deliver a software fix. Perhaps I'll realise I'm just a sucker for shiny white plastic.
