    So. I'm looking at the Belkin N-52 (or, alternatively, the TE version of the same), and I'm wondering, specifically, if I can use it to control things like Expose and Spaces.

    I'd be a much happier person if I had buttons for more of the expose/spaces functions (spaces is presently fn+F8, and I rarely remember what buttons are what for expose).

    Also: I don't game hardcore enough to really justify purchasing this thing. If I could be assured that the n-52's buttons could also be used for things like expose, spaces, photoshop, reason, etc., etc., it'd seem like a much more practical investment to me.

    Anyone here have any experience with the thing?

    I bought the Griffin Powermate and this has worked perfectly for me. You can customize every single action to do soemthing for you.

    Hm. Looks good, but maybe not ideal. Seems like you'd really only have a few gestures to program...and probably not any more than a three/five button mouse? I admit it's a pretty foxy looking peripheral, though. :)
