I'm thinking that if the joy-stick was indented (instead of rounded out as it is now), this might have made it easier to accidentally press and click? Maybe not. Anyone remember that old monster Atari home video game joystick back in the 70's? Forget thumb ache, that stiff piece of non-operational Hell would kill your whole hand and wrist. My how things have improved over the years. Although I can't really comment on the GP2X yet as I'm still trying to figure out how to get anything to work on it. I'm hoping that I might get to play at least one game by the end of 2006.
