Wireless Mighty Mouse

I saw one of these as a clearance item at MicroCenter yesterday, so I picked one up to try it out.  In the tiny bit of time I’ve used it so far, the only annoyance (and a minor one at that) is turning the mouse on and off.  I find it challenging to move the slider on the bottom of the mouse without clicking the mouse body a few times.   I like the little trackball on the top for 360 degree scrolling (though I don’t find myself scrolling sideways much with a 24″ monitor).  I haven’t played with the configuration tool much yet, but it appears to give you a wide variety of ways to customize the mouse’s behavior.  We’ll see how the battery life is.

    Don’t turn it off. It sleeps fine on it’s own.

    Battery life is good as long as you use high quality batteries. I’m using the long-shelf life rechargeables, and I get between 6-8 weeks to a charge.

    I should have known Apple would be clever enough to make the mouse sleep on its own. The marketing copy on the website does a better job of hyping that when it comes to the wireless keyboard (which MicroCenter had none of when I was there).

    I’ll probably end up buying the wireless keyboard too. Fewer wires should make for a cleaner-looking desk in my office at least.
