I broke my cell phone, dropped it and no more LCD screen. You cannot imagine how hard it is to make a call when you cannot see the screen (no more directory).
So, I went out and upgraded to a Palm Treo 650. Very nice, big screen, has everything I want - except the scroll bar is on the right hand of the screen.
Well, guess what, if you are left handed - where do you think your hand ends up?
Yes, that would be right over the entire screen. Makes scrolling somewhat difficult as you have to wrap your arm/wrist/hand around the entire device to do it. Or become right handed, which isn't going to happen.
Tried "lefty", a palm preference. Too bad not a single application I actually use obeys it.
Tried Scrollbar5, it can "force" the scrollbar in some applications (but not blazer the web browser which is sort of where I need it most). I tried Xiino as a web browser and the scrollbar can be forced - right on top of the first 2 or 3 characters of each line!
How hard would it be (I'm sure there are some left handed developers out there) to have the Palm OS let us pick where the scroll bar is?
Don't even get me started on power tools (I think there are fewer lefties than righties because us left handed people die in horrible power tool related accidents). Take a look at your circular saw sometime (I know, you can get left handed ones - sometimes).
Now, I'm just sort of dragging my thumb up and down the right hand side which seems to work most of the time (until you hit a button, a link, whatever).
