Next Issue 06-Dec-99 -- Due to the Thanksgiving holiday and associated family plans, the next issue of TidBITS will appear in two weeks on 06-Dec-99. However, we'll continue to post TidBITS Updates to our Web site, and TidBITS Talk will continue unabated. See you in December! [GD]

Poll Preview: A Mouse in the House -- Apple has stuck with a simple, single-button mouse because novice users can find multiple-button mice confusing. However, a two-button rodent is standard fare on PCs, and third parties have created a bewildering array of pointing devices in different shapes, sizes, and colors. Many users have switched to alternatives, and Apple's widely criticized puck-like mouse that ships with the iMac and Power Mac G4 has energized the market for replacements. The question, then, is what sort of pointing device do you rely on the most? Register your vote on the poll form on our home page! [ACE]
