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.
Excerpt: The last computer peripheral I need to replaced before having a complete Apple setup was my mouse. For many years, I have been extremely fond of Logitech mice. Ergonomics, performance and features - Logitech mice have it all. When the MX1000 was released, I was the first guy in my dorm to get one and have never regretted the purchase.
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.
Conclusion: Particulièrement esthétique, la souris sans fil d’Apple s’appuie sur la technologie Bluetooth. Mais seuls les ordinateurs compatibles avec la technologie sans fil et équipés d’une version très récente de Mac OS X peuvent en profiter.
