Building a Better Mouse

If a three-button mouse seems like a luxury, try the PowerMouse 100. Its standard two buttons are surrounded by 38 small, programmable buttons.

By writing key-definition tables, you can assign macros and commands to the mouse. A table is loaded into the memory-resident portion of PowerMouse's software. When you want to change the way the buttons work, load a different key-definition table.

PowerMouse 100 requires an IBM PC or compatible with a graphics adapter card, DOS 2.0 or higher, and a serial port. It retails for $195, and you can get more information from ProHance Technologies, 1307 South Mary, #104, Sunnyvale, California 94087; (408) 746-0950.
