Technology is freaking amazing. Everything gets upgraded and improved over times. However, there are a few classic pieces of technology that I still use daily and prefer over modern alternatives.Technology is freaking amazing. Everything gets upgraded and improved over times. However, there are a few classic pieces of technology that I still use daily and prefer over modern alternatives.
One of them is this fine device. The Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball.
I’ve been using the Trackball since it was released in 2010. I own 4 of these Trackballs, and they are still all working today.
Here are reasons why I like it so much:
1. Comfort: The shape is very comfortable and it helps with wrist pain. Your wrist stays stationary, since you use your thumb to move the trackball.
2. Durable: It’s held up fine for nearly 10 years now (and I take it with me whenever I travel), the single AA battery lasts up to about 1.5 years, and I usually never turn the mouse off!
3. Wireless: It uses the classic Logitech USB dongle, just plug it in and it works, no wires to worry about. It works amazingly well when using my laptop while sitting on the coach where I don’t have a surface for a mouse. It also works great for doing presentation when I can just hold the trackball against my leg.
4. Inexpensive: You can buy a brand new one from Amazon (http://amzn.to/2kc4gQk) for under $30! I’ve used and tried a lot of mices over the years, but I still always come back to the Logitech M570.
Question: What mouse do you use, and what do you like about.
