Why is there only one button on an Apple mouse? This question has bothered me for some time, you would think with all the cleverness going on in the Apple ranks they could manufacture a mouse with two buttons.
The other day I think I discovered the reason; this is an imagined call to a tech support person, which I found on someoneâ€™s blog:
Tech: Right click on â€œMy Computerâ€
Tech: The right mouse button
Caller: Oh, okay…Now thereâ€™s a menu.
Tech: Select â€œManageâ€
Tech: Double click on â€˜Device Managerâ€™
Caller: Left or right click?
And this is the rub, Apple assumes that your average user is too daft to handle 2 buttons, and from this conversation you can see why.
