It's a right handed world

Left handed people always say it's a right handed world. Its true. Those of us who are right handed don't think much about this because everything is geared toward righties by default, like scissors and mice.

My son is left handed as well and my sister and mother, so although I am right handed I have an appreciation for the plight of the left handed.

My family and I spent march break in Panama. I wanted to really get away and not think about anything but relaxing. So I left my laptop at home. Yeah I know! I took my IPAQ though, I mean come on be reasonable. I needed somewhere to transfer my pictures when the flash card was full right?

So on the plane I was teaching my 9 year old son how to play solitaire. Something I had never done on my hand held. As I was playing it on my IPAQ I realized the game is not conducive to right handed players. As you click on the pile of cards to turn the next card your hand is in the way of the screen. While my son could play very easily without ever moving his hand out of the way to see.

So although it is a right handed world, there are some things in this world for lefties and not righties. If you want to feel good about being a south paw play solitaire on a hand held computer.

If anyone comes across a right handed version of solitaire for windows CE, I'm interested.
