As far as I can tell, there are 3 types of mouse buyers out there. The first, which represents the majority of users, can mouse with just about any piece of crappy plastic that is put in front of them. They are frugal, they are not picky, and they tend to not see value in paying more for something that has marginally more features than the bargain-basement devices. They are categorized in this sense as not requiring a ton of precision nor low response times when using input devices, specifically keyboards and mice.
I think the tablet market is such an interesting one—and it has come so far since Apple really got people interested back in 2010. Back then, the idea was that this market for a device that wasn’t a phone, but also wasn’t a computer, was an entirely new one and seemingly distinct from either of the former. But, as we’ve seen in recent years, the latest push is to unify our devices, and maybe most specifically our laptops and tablets into a single device that can play in both worlds. And I think this is a noble endeavor, if for no other reason than it gives us one fewer device, one fewer charging brick and cable, and all-in-all slightly less bulk to haul around.
Could you imagine writing a review on a lamp? Or perhaps the lightbulb within the lamp? It would be tricky, to say the least—not because it’s not easy to assess whether or not the thing is doing its job, rather, because the job itself is a simple one that doesn’t come with a lot of excitement.
