    I have a touch screen, touch pad, keyboard, wireless keyboard w/ mouse, X10 mouse....and the only one that does any good is the touch screen and that is only like half the time.

    I use Game Commander 2 for voice commands, although I might switch to Via Voice.

    Mouse and keyboard are Logitech's cordless ones. I'm going to switch to a cordless Logitech trackball soon.

    Speaking of which, who wants to design a controller that uses the parallel port to roll the car's windows up and down? Huh? Huh? Anyone?
