    For those of you that turk all day in uncomfortable positions, do any of you use a wireless keyboard and mouse? I just got one and love it. The mouse works great and is so much more efficient and quicker for hits such as crowdflower. I almost forgot how much more convenient it is to be able to scroll down the hits with the rollie on the mouse! :clap2:

    My mouse is wireless. I just have trouble sometimes of remembering to turn it off, which runs the battery down.

    I have a regular key board and mouse hooked up to my lap top. I sit in a comfy chair with my key board on my lap and the laptop on the table next to me. Makes turking much easier for me.

    Invest in a good set of rechargeable batteries, otherwise the mouse will be a PITA.

    I have a wireless mouse & keyboard too. It's nice, but the battery part of it does suck. And it took a bit of adjusting to with the scrolling because a few times I've inadvertently changed an answer while scrolling. :eek:

    Wireless keyboard and mouse does provides mobility, but it is not recommended for heavy PC/mac users since they suck on battery powers. I did use it in the past but decided to go back to the good old wired ones just for this very reason.

    It used to be, and I am not sure now, that gamers would stay away from wireless due to the responsiveness/time it took for the inputs to be received. I am sure this not the case anymore, I am thinking back when I was in high school playing Counter Strike in beta and Day of Defeat (both Half-life mods). I mention this because I always notice a little lag with my wireless keyboard, but never my mouse. So I just stick to the laptop's board and my wireless mouse. Seems to work well for me.
