|If one TrackPoint is so
productive, why not use two?
Most GUI applications have centered on using only the dominant hand for pointing and manipulation of objects on the desktop.

Horizontal Trackpoints, vertical Trackpoints, Trackpoint in the corner are examples of ways to make ambidextrous Two-Handed point for Internet mice and doing scrolling and pointing at the same time.
Some applications of Two-Handed pointing are:
Software to make 300 applications work across platform and on all applications has been constructed to work with the Two-Handed TrackPoint in the keyboard. This simple extension of TrackPoint technology has the possibility of speeding many user-interface tasks.
