Somebody send one of these things to Steve Jobs and make him use it for a week.  I'd like to see the veins stand out on his forehead when he tries to use a mouse with more than one button.  ;-)

Having all of those buttons in place of the normal mouse buttons is rediculous, however, the idea of placing an analog thumb stick on a mouse is pure genius. Maybe its been dont before, but I would kill for a mouse that included an analog stick.

Gluing a gaming pad on the top of a mouse? About the same... And how in hell do you figure out what button you are really pushing? Then there is the "move the hand up to reach the button while accidentially moving the mouse off of what you were trying to click on". Rubbish bin.

This reminds me of an old simpons episode where Homer meets his half brother... thus

the quote that comes to mind is "how much does this monstrosity cost?"

My problem with this is not that it has so many buttons (because the more buttons the better), but that it looks like the least comfortable mouse ever. I mean, I understand what they're going for and I personally think it would be pretty handy, but there's no way I could use that thing for more than ten minutes before throwing it away and going back to my more ergonomic model.

My gosh, there's more button than a pop machine!  How are the USA kids going to remember all these buttons, let alone able to master them all for Starcraft!  Like another poster mentioned, we'll never beat the Koreans!
