Apple Mighty Mouse
1 December 2007
Excerpt: Usually ahead of the curve, Apple has belatedly released a multibutton mouse. The optical Apple Mighty Mouse can be customized for different users and has two invisible touch-sensitive buttons on top, force-sensing buttons on the sides, and a teensy ball for omnidirectional scrolling. But we found that the capsule shape isn't all that comfortable, it doesn't fit large hands, the scroll ball is awkward to use, and the 30-inch cord can't reach under-desk computers.
Conclusion: At 69, Apple's Wireless Mighty Mouse is not for everyone. It is made with mobility in mind and is ideal for MacBook/MacBook Pro users on the run. There's no need for the monotonous plugging in of USB cords as with other mice. For the right person and application, the wireless Mighty Mouse is a solid, well-designed product. Don't listen to what TUAW says in their review . I couldn't disagree more (plus the author likes the old Microsoft Intellimouse!).
Summary: In the future, I expect Apple to address most, if not all, of the Mighty Mouse’s imperfections—probably in the Bluetooth version that is sure to follow. Until that time, I have found that these flaws simply required adjusting to the new critter. After having used it for a couple of weeks, the only thing I still notice is that my mouse looks a whole lot better than its predecessor. The BFR Breakdown: Ease of use: Simple and intuitive. Right-click may take some adjustment.
Conclusion: So has losing the wires helped? Most definitely, its always nice to declutter your desktop. It's also helps when it comes to using it with a laptop if you travel a lot as no wires means no getting tangled at the bottom of the bag. Installation is easy and reported difficulties with the first Mighty Mouse being difficult to use are unfounded once again.
Pros: No wires, easy setup
Cons: Expensive, you'll have to buy batteries every now and then
Conclusion: At £35 this is an expensive mouse no matter whether it’s “mighty” or not. We found no difficult using the new buttons even though we’ve read a series of reports and reviews online to suggest otherwise, in fact we are left baffled by one we saw which suggested that Apple should release new guidelines on how to hold a mouse - poppycock is our (polite) response. Nothing is ever perfect and for this money we would have expected it to be wireless.
Conclusion: Apple covers the Mighty Mouse with an industry-standard one-year warranty. Free phone support is available for the first 90 days after purchase, and Apple's support Web site offers troubleshooting advice, FAQs, and a searchable users' forum.
Pros: Side buttons are hard to squeeze, Comfort could be improved
Cons: Attractive design, Scroll ball is comfortable and easy to use, Works with Windows and Mac systems, Integration with Tiger is flawless
Conclusion: Aún no estamos ante el mouse perfecto, principalmente porque no tiene Bluetooth (maldito cable!), pero el mecanismo que ocupa para ir desde 1 a 4 botones es alucinante. Continuar leyendo para el veredicto completo del primer mouse multibotón en la historia de Apple . Cuando recién lo sacas de la caja y enchufas, Mac OS X lo reconoce como un mouse de 1 botón, con "scroll wheel" (o en este caso "scroll ball").
Excerpt: Prawie rok temu Apple wprowadził mysz Mighty Mouse, ktora po raz pierwszy miała więcej niż jeden przycisk. Teraz na rynku debiutuje wersja bezprzewodowa, w przypadku ktorej kabel USB został zastapiony połaczeniem Bluetooth. Dzięki laserowemu mechanizmowi śledzenia mysz może pracowac z ogromną precyzją na różnych rodzajach powierzchni, dzięki czemu jest świetnym uzupełnieniem laptopa.
