Happy Mouse Day!!

I am totally devoted to Apple computers. Did you expect anything less from me? "I'm a PC"? Give me a break. Apple all the way. It makes me feel more secure in my superiority.

I have been pretty sad though about their less-than-mighty mouse. I mean, it was great for the year that it worked. I liked that I could squeeze the sides and that was a button. Of course, they added a right-click (very important, and I think that those who maintain that a right click is unnecessary are whack). And then there's the tiny scroll wheel in the middle of the mouse. Awesome, since it scrolls in all directions. Until, that is, you reach a certain day and the scroll wheel decides to stop scrolling down. LAME. And did you know, using the scroll bars at the sides of your page is not fun, not even one little bit? And don't give me that crap about cleaning off the ball to get it to work again. Believe me. We have THREE mighty mice in our home (count 'em: THREE) and none of the scroll wheels work anymore. And I have definitely tried to clean them all out in every single way listed on the sites and forums.


Well, Apple has invented a new way to get our money (besides the 27-inch iMac, which I don't even want to talk about right now) and that is the new mightier mouse, called the Magic Mouse. I can't really figure out how it works, but I just know it's going to be good! (Because Apple has a history of really good mice. [Note: Not true, because HOW long did it take them to finally add a right click?]) Anyway, it's supposed to arrive today, and basically every truck I hear drive by, or every neighbor that I hear getting out of their car, makes me look up in eager anticipation. PLEASE, FedEx! End the anticipation and deliver my Magic Mouse! I want to scroll down again!

Tell me how that works out for you. We are having the same issues except, for now, ours works when we clean it!

I had the exact same issue when I was still working for the man and worked on a Mac. I did love that iMac, though... If my indexing software ran on a Mac, I would seriously consider getting one when my PC ultimately bites the dust.

Congrats on the new mouse! I hate waiting for the FedEx/UPS man. I hope he comes soon!

sorry to disagree, but i have a mac at work and pcs at home, and i'm able to crash and have problems with both regularly. anyone who can't get a mac to have a breakdown isn't using it to it's full potential. or maybe it's just that my mac is ancient...

Happy Mouse Day! When I saw the magic mouse I just about died. Our scroll has been a bit buggy, but nothing a little rubbing alcohol didn't fix. I've been dreaming all week about the magic mouse and a wacom tablet.

. . . and the 27" imac? SWOON. I thought our 24" of real estate was ridiculous. Oh my goodness.

Same issues over here. DEFINITELY looking into this new mouse!

I am very interested to see what you think of the magic mouse. I personally am in love with my Wacom tablet... but wouldn't mind having a magic mouse for my laptop...
