WOW! I'm a left-hander, too, and this needle makes me sharp. :-) Or should I say: "This wow is for you, Achim."

Did you know that Dr. Douglas Engelbart's research team (which invented the mouse in the early 1960s at the Stanford Research Institute) named the first mouse cursor "bug" (which also means "programming error") because it looked like an insect on the screen? It had the shape of a cross or "+". However, this modern PointerNeedle isn't buggy at all. =-)

This freeware thingy is so cute! The needle clicks much more accurately (you can hit a single pixel easier) than Apple's stubby, black and white arrow.

It needs no RAM and therefore it is always activated in my system extensions. Forever.
