Submission + - When click of a mouse cost £2,000 (bbc.co.uk)

pthompson writes: "The BBC has reported how an online banking customer accidentally transferred £2K into the wrong account. I am a command-line fan, and wouldn't trust a mouse for, say, dragging-and-dropping files between NFS shares due to the risk of this kind of mouse-slip having undesired results. Are we too reliant on the mouse? Do you have any examples of mouse-slip causing problems in a Systems Admin role?"
