The Apple "Mighty Mouse" ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Mighty_Mouse#About_the_mouse ) has a track-ball/button that both scrolls in 2 dimensions and middle-clicks.

comment Mac webcam photo application with access to camera settings (resolution, camera selection, color balance, focus)
Lack of focus control is a limitation of the iSight being a fixed-lens camera. Ditto the resolution, though iGlasses will allow you to zoom a portion of the iSight image. That's the best you can do, other than resizing on the fly (which can't change the basic resolution, but only interpolate between pixels).

comment How can I change to the previous directory instead of going up?
Or alias pd to pushd and have both. BTW pushd (or pd, if you alias it) by itself swaps the current directory and last-pushed directory, essentially accomplishing what 'cd -' does.

comment How can I permanently add a path to my bash profile?
Or better: Edit your question to show (paste) the contents of your .bashrc (or at least a few lines containing your edit).
