Default Apple Magic Mouse

1. Name of the product:

Apple Magic Mouse, bit of trivia for you guys... when this came out the once named "Mighty Mouse" was dethroned to merely the "Apple Mouse" so im guessing this is the formally known Mighty Mouses successor



2. When you bought the product:

11th November 2009

3. Why you bought it:

My 2nd "Mighty Mouse" died so i was after a new mouse, im a fan of apple so i ended buying this new Magic Mouse as i weighed up the odds of a 3rd MM clogging up on me and tbh as much as i love all the functions of the Mighty mouse i decided to go with the new "balless" 360 track mouse aptly named "Magic Mouse" even though the feature set had been downgraded.

4. How much did it cost:

£55 (thats £21 more than the Mighty Mouse)

5. Installation / Setup:

As soon as i switched my Mac Pro on, with out a mouse attached it recognised the new Magic Mouse after i had switched it on, a couple of final tweaks in system prefs to assign the right button and i was away

6. What do you like about it?:

The sleek design of the mouse, the fact the 360 ball has gone meaning no more clogged up tracking and its wireless operating via bluetooth

7. What donít you like about it?:

I was seriously put off by the fact apple has removed the ability to associate expose to centre button and that the side buttons have been removed. I was close to just buying the usual Mighty Mouse but with the suggestion T3 made i assigned my keyboard keys F5 & F6 to Expose-All and Expose-Desktop respectively so at least i have those features readily available to me with out too much extra fuss

8. Any improvements:

facilitate association of centre button to Expose

9. Comparison to similar products:

n/a

10. Would you buy it again:

Yes, but if apple release a new mouse i would consider that too

11. Platform:

Mac but i cant see why it wouldnt work on a PC

12. Pros and cons summary:

seamless integration, great touch sensitive buttons, great looks and the 360 scroll ball has been eliminated freeing your mouse from its curse of the clogged ball. Now update the software to include Expose association!!!



13. Rating:

4/5

Baa baa sheeple have you bought a mouse
Yes sir, yes sir, big girls blouse
One for my iMac, Macbook and Pro
And one because it's Apple and I can't say 'no'

Baa baa sheeple it is just a mouse
So why does it cost the same as my house?
A lot of fancy marketing and sprinkle it with hype
Maybe it's time that you went a got a life

Baa baa sheeple you don't need this mouse
Close your Macbooks and leave your house
Go to PC world and get a 'puter just like mine
You may get a virus and be permanently offline

Baa baa sheeple what am I do?
If I stay on here then I'll end up just like ewe
On the other hand, I can stay as I am
Have my finances hacked into and be swamped with spam

Baa baa sheeple I must have time to burn
I'm writing this drivel and Keats pens Grecian Urn
It's hardly Shakespeare, Wordsworth or Sassoon
It's really just the ramblings of a babbling baboon

£55 and it clicks? I'd expect a nice hydraulic 'hiss' for that cash.

Seriously though.. does anyone know of any silent mice? Am i the only one that gets annoyed with these clicks? Am i the only one thinking outside the box in the mouse development industry?

Man, I'm getting way ahead here but what about a silencer for those who want to keep their old clicky mouse.

A clickless mouse and mouse click silencer. Move over Dyson. You suck!

If I wasn't a genius already I'd be one now. I'm genius≤

I'll take your genius idea and take it one step further.

Wrap a facecloth followed by plenty of clingfilm around your mouse for the fix. You start assembling the kits, i'll get intouch with JML.
