It was hilarious to hear the shouts,
Hey! there's something wrong with the mouse!

Here's something funny,
I did this to a couple people I worked with about 20 years back, maybe
longer.
There was a little thing I installed on their computer, I'm not sure of the
name now, maybe it was called catnip, but when it was installed, mouse users
would try to use the mouse, and it would never move onto an icon, it only
pushed them around.
Soon all their desktop icons were in an icon pile-up mess.
You can only do it once without really pissing someone off.

But it's only reallyf unny the first time.

Who does that? When I need somebody to do something with my phone or my
computer, I turn off the assistive technology for them. Its called thinking
of others and is generally a good idea.

There was a time where the processing demands were enough to "slow
things down" when it was turned on, and I think that's why the default
was OFF.

But given the radical increases in CPU processing power, generally
increased RAM, and the advent of SSDs this is really is no longer the
case in practice. That's why I wish the default were changed.

But we deal with the defaults we get, until the software maker changes
them. I hate some of them and love others. 'Twas ever thus!
