GOODBYE MOUSE, HELLO TRAK-BALL


Another new item of Atari hardware is the Trak-ball (£28.99), which is an alternative to the mouse that we all know and love... or not as the case may be! The Trak-Ball functions like an upside down mouse: rather than push around a plastic case enclosing a rubber ball, you rotate a rubber ball within a fixed plastic casing. The advantage that Trak-Ball offers over a mouse is that it takes up less desk space, and it also eliminates mouse droppings - off the edge of the mat that is.
