EVERYONE has that problem. I used to think the mouse was responding to 
my thoughts, but after years of fighting with it I finally noticed that 
when I reach for the mouse my finger might barely brush one of the edges 
and ZOOM it takes off.

I have developed some weird autonomic behaviors now, reaching with my 
hand in an unnatural position, fingers splayed at odd angles. I look 
like I have some kind of nerve disease.

This is, in my opinion, one of the worst designs I've seen for a mouse. 
The only reason I don't swap it out for a USB mouse is because I've 
become so attached to the side swipe gesture to flip pages in web browsers.
