Right, but plasmas are a bit thin on the ground where humans live and humans are the ones who call things things. There may be aliens who call plasmas and gasses things, but they probably have different words for them. "No Fnakquar, an antivacuum is called a 'congressman' " or some such.

The apple mouse, the one with the touch panel where the buttons would be seems to manage this. You can configure it to register a middle tap as a middle click and disable the scroll function. Not that I play many games on my mac. Why you can't disable the scroll with normal mice is beyond me. I'd pay extra for a switch array on the bottom, just like Happy Hacking do with their keyboards.

In fact, we need the Happy Hacking people to make a mouse. They wouldn't screw it up.
