I don't know how this compares to the "hybrids" of this article, but it doesn't seem to be that different, maybe except for the batteries, thus the opportunity for fully-electric operation?
it's selfish people who don't use mass transit
If you live in a city that doesn't run its buses from 8:45 PM to 5:45 AM (source), and you're given hours at night, you need a car in order not to have to spend the majority of your paycheck on a taxi or lose your job. If you live in a city that doesn't run its buses on Sundays, and you're given hours on Sunday, you need a car in order not to have to spend the majority of your paycheck on a taxi or lose your job.
On the other hand, there traffic is usually less problematic during these hours, as there are often less commuters (maybe except for holidays on Saturdays, those can be quite crowded).
So, that use case is hardly a problem, in my opinion (unless I missed something).
I find it
Experience and what you are used to are very important. But, as someone who started on consoles, only to switch to PC years later, I find M+K a lot, lot more precise (even though I sometimes miss the analog stick for moving around in FPSes, which is a good use of an analog stick). And coming back to consoles, I find my accuracy considerably decreased (also due to the lack of practice, nowadays). Aim assist is also blatantly obvious. It jumps in my face every time I play halo/borderlands/left for dead/whatever FPS on a console.
Now, a mouse is *objectively* better for aiming. There are many different ways to approach the problem, but I just thought about this one: imagine an aimbot. What kind of interface would you want to plug it in, for it to be effective? The quantization (~10 bits) of an analog stick makes it hard to be both fast and precise. Increase sensitivity, and you will have a hard time aiming precisely. Decrease it, and you now have to wait for aiming.
Of course, this is somewhat mitigated with non-linear scales, but it makes it very hard to input the exact movement in less than one frame. And this is for an aimbot. Humans are notoriously bad with precise timings. And I didn't even start on the ergonomy side of the argument.
