Not as a daily device, but I've used my iPod as a trackpad to control my computer while laying in bed.

When I was younger, we had a trackball instead of a regular mouse for our computer and I use the touchpad on my laptop a lot because it works well with Windows 8 gestures, but nothing too exotic.

I've been using various models of Logitech's thumb-operated track balls since 1998. Currently using the M570.

I didn't mind the using the trackpoint stick on a few laptops, it was vastly superior to almost all trackpads. And as far as trackpads go, the only one I didn't mind using was the one on my Unibody MBP.

I use a controller if I'm just watching something from my bed since the wire is far longer.

Anything is fine provided you get used to it. Heck you don't even need such a device if you know how to use your keyboard.

PS3 controller and xpadder. Not as bad as it sounds when set up correctly. This was for an attempt at an htpc before I just decided to use xbmc instead.

The wife used her Wacom tablet exclusively as a mouse back in the day, on her Mac. I could never get the hang of it outside of photoshop. my perpetually unfinished website.

I have a wireless keyboard with a touch pad on it I use when I'm on the couch watching videos.
It is a real pain in the ass trying to do much else with it compared to my mouse.
