Anyone else using a glass-top desk? I love mine, but I can never find a mouse pad that works. I use a mouse half the time, and a tablet the rest of the time. Sometimes I'll use my mouse with the left hand and stylus in the right, with the keyboard in the middle.
Anyway, I can't find a mouse pad that works. They all end up sliding around after a few hours. I don't want to tape it to the desk.
What do you use? I need something heavy, or maybe a little piece of rubber?
I use a magazine with the glossy front page ripped off. Works a treat. Every week or two when the top page gets a bit grubby I rip it off and go onto the next.
I think the microsoft blue light mice work on glass.... maybe it's called "Blue Track Technology", then you don't need a mousepad.
I had a plain old rubber bottomed one. Worked great. But now I just use an Apple Trackpad.
Glass-top desks are distracting - you'll just be looking at your wonky big toe all day and the collection of fluff and dust on the floor at the back of the desk.
And there's always the worry you'll trip and fall through it.
I used to just use mouse on desk when I had a glass top. My mouse worked fine on transparent glass.
I don't see what's wrong with Greg using a magazine cover - Works a treat, fully 'customisable', recyclable, more portable than most mousepads and still comfortable. Lightweight too.
Magazine cover = the ultimate mousepad. Maybe a bit of blu-tac underneath to stabilize it.
Cutting mat is the rub. More space, smooth, doesn't fray, looks rad.
