Has anyone else noticed that they never seem to use the mouse? Take NCIS for example. McGee and Abby never touch the mouse. I don't know if they even have mouses.

So my question is this: Is the lack of mouse using for dramatic effect or is the mouse rendered obsolete once you get really good at computers?

Amazing picture. Also, in things like CSI, no matter what they do the computer beeps. That would piss me the fuck off after the first 3 minutes.

Well they're not really using the computer. Just pretending.
That, Sir, is called acting...

@ TS: yes, once you get used to a computer, you can pretty much live without the rodent... Using the [Tab], [Ctrl]+[Tab] or [Alt]+[Tab] combinations, and the function keys, you can do pretty much anything!

However it can be incredibly ineffecient unless all you do is work in Excel.

Practically all movies and TV never use the mouse.

Using the keyboard is just a simpler way [a device?] of letting you know that someone is actively using a computer for something.

Seeing as, I think, when you're using Tab to select things, you have to go all around the cycle again don't you?

Me thinks the sound of clacking keys are more dramatic than the click of the mouse.

Watch Swordfish for really dramatic key clackings.

Hardly anything they do with computers on films/in tv is accurate I don't think it really matters. I've learnt to just ignore their stupidity. Must be difficult for them to play all those addictive flash games without a mouse when they're skiving off work, though.

All the actors ever do is furiously type commands on the screen. I mean if you have to diffuse a bomb using a laptop in 2 minutes to save the world, you won't bother to take out a mouse and attach and then work on it.

#21
this is a good point actually, in any program or film, people just seem to wack the buttons on the keyboard really loudly(nad bloody fast!) and never bother touching the mouse.
It's just not realistic

On a somewhat unrelated note, all the computers in CS: Source and L4D have Steam icons on their desktops.
Here's my Youtube channel.
I play guitar and video games on it.
You're more than welcome to check it out.

Everything has a keyboard input alternative, and these guys are just so pro that they prefer to press tab 16 times rather than navigate with the mouse.
