Do you love your mouse? I love mine.
This question has nothing to do with kinky sex, Sorry. My concern is my Iphone and Ipad. They're great but without a mouse you don't have the great block cut or copy and paste function. I would never dream of assembling a hub from my Ipad. Sometimes older technology is hard to beat. Any thoughts on this.
I don't have an iphone or an ipad but I just got my son and cat a remote control mouse for Christmas and I love watching them play together! :>)
I don't think that's true: http://portables.about.com/od/newsandvi … als_10.htm but in any case, the main drawback to a mouse is the need for a flat surface, which could be inconvenient when using pad devices.
I do! When I added a laptop to my computers, I said that I'd ONLY do it if I could have a mouse.
I've had an iBook for years and another one for 4 years before that. (Lap top no mouse.) I have a tracking pad. Anything you can do with a mouse, I can do too, without a mouse.
I thought I would be lost without a mouse initially, but I haven't missed it and it's been literally years since I had a mouse. About 7 I guess. I've never operated an iPad, but my iBook works without any problem without a mouse.
I copy and paste my hubs into capsules all the time. I create/write them in Microsoft Word which is included in my Microsoft Business Office program that I purchased separately and loaded onto this iBook that I use all the time and that I'm writing on now.
I know nothing about an IPhone, but I would expect an iPad to work not so differently than this iBook. Usually people at the Apple Store are more than happy to tell you how to operate Apple products. They can do it in person or you can get technical help online or on the phone. Check with them and see how you can get around not having a mouse. On my iBook, as I've said, I have a tracking pad that does everything a mouse does.
I just now Googled, "How do you copy & paste with an iPad and How do you copy & paste with an IPhone and tons of stuff came up including on YouTube on how to do these things. Check it out.
Thanks so much for your detailed response. I shall take your suggestions. I think I have gotten stuck in my habitual way of doing things
Tracking buttons and pads are great when they are built well. I'm sure Apple makes quality ones. The only other ones I've thought were well made are the ones on IBM Thinkpads. Unfortunately, on cheaper computers the pads get flakey after a while.
I do! Mine has a little red light underneath. In the 'old days' I had one that needed a special 'mouse pad' to run around on. My latest one does not want a pad, it likes running around on the top of my desk, but if I don't keep it absolutely clean it scratches little marks in the polish - and it doesn't even have any paws or claws!
I finally started using the touchpad when I got the MacBook Air - it has a pressure-sensitive pad & I can use it more easily. But before that, I carried a teeny baby rodent everywhere I took my other laptop. I do use one on my desktop & it's a happy little guy.
The main iPad issue is that HP doesn't yet support it fully - even if you had a mouse, it would be difficult to create a hub on it. But I use it all the time to comment, read hubs, do the forums & the Answers here. I'm consudering getting a portable keyboard for the iPad - it lets you use it almost like a small computer.
yeah! :-D i love it because it has a bright red light that glows whenever i move it! ;-)
I agree! I just bought a laptop yesterday and do plan to buy a mouse when my package arrives. The wireless ones sound great. I'm an oldschooler and I just love using a mouse. I can't seem to do the hands-free-touch thing on a laptop. I'm terrible on the Kindle Fire trying to manipulate when I'm hubbing. Ugh!
Yes. I still love my mouse. So I prefer to use desktop than laptop or ipad.
It's great to move my mouse over a nice mouse pad so that it can be more precise in a way as the laser tends to go haywire on my glass top.

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

What is the difference between a laptop, iPad, Notebook and Tablet or are they all the same?At face value they appear to be the same, just in different packaging.

Christoph has a problem with his laptop and I'm hoping that somewhere in hubland we have a puter geek with a solution.Chris' cat took a catnap on his laptop keyboard while it was running and now the pointer is stuck and he can't move his mouse. He doesn't have a peripheral mouse and uses the...

I often use my iPad for checking in on hubpages and other various networks that I belong to. However I have found that I am unable to work on my hubs with my iPad. I don't really know what the glitch is. I am guessing it is coming from Apple's side however it would be great if hubpages could work...
