Other attendees contributed objects like a rubix cube and a Moody Blues tape. Obviously, Jobs' Lisa mouse is one of the few objects that still holds value.

HA! Suck it, Moody Blues!

I've been using that for awhile now, and love it. I don't even play mmos, but I like having a bunch of hot keys right under my thumb, rather than going back and forth between mouse and keyboard.

Apple Lisa?? You mean the computer named for the girl he testified couldn't be his?

Considering how much he claimed to be into design the shape of that mouse sucks. How comfortable could it be to use a rectangular mouse with hard corners?

/Uses Logitech trackerball.

Wow nice, I've been looking for a good corded mouse since I moved my gaming to the livingroom, the wireless one is just out of range without a complete charge so it's always plugged in anyway.

Producing curved shapes wasn't really easy/cost effective back then. Also ergonomics wasn't a thing, and we weren't really married to the mouse as a human interface just yet.

Actually I believe it. He really seemed to love ugly square crap with sharp corners (look up his ugly yacht for example). I'm guessing the later apple stuff with rounded edges were designed by other people.

Well, "Apple fanboys" are a subset of "sopping pussies"

None of these fanboys have seen "Star Trek IV" on their iPad?

Actually I think it might have had something to do with  Giorgetto Giugiaro. He was responsible for the popular "folded paper" car designs of the 1970s and did some design work for Apple as well. I can't confirm that he was solely responsible for the look of early Apple computers, but he had a hand in some of their design work.

/not an Apple fan... at all.

Appropriate. Your joke is almost as old as the mouse they dug up.

These are Apple fanbois. They didn't know about mp3 players before the iPod, or tablets before the iPad or smartphones before the iPhone. Hell, they think Apple invented the GUI O/S and mouse.

Very nice answer, and far more diplomatic than I was prepared to be. It was a little bit like criticizing Og the Caveman because his new wheel didn't have pneumatic tires.

I've had my BB18 for a number of years and still enjoy using it.  Despise using a mouse.

...or it's just another retarded and sad troll headline, which is far more likely.

Seriously, the only people obsessively talking about Apple products are "journalists" and haters.
