I missed that one!

>> It took them a while to get onboard with a two button mouse. <<

I didn't know they ever went beyond two buttons, but that could easily be my own ignorance. The only time I used a Mac was back around 2009 so I could write the instructions for connecting a USB DAC. The least expensive was a Mac-Mini (with the Intel processor), but I supplied the keyboard, mouse, and display. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Apple programs *responded* to right-button mouse clicks on my existing mouse, but I don't recall that Apple had one available - at least at that time.

Their current offering apparently has a top surface sensitive to multi-finger gestures. Personally that whole idea seems somewhat counter-intuitive and reminds me of the '70s-era Saturday Night Live "spoof" commercial for the early digital wristwatch that was so advanced "it required three hands to operate".
