Old Mouse

This morning, I trashed my mouse. It was an Apple Mighty Mouse. Alas, while it may have been Apple, it was surely not mighty. It is the last mouse that I buy from Apple. My new mouse is an old mouse — also an Apple mouse but this time simply a wireless mouse. I'm going to miss the trackball. Actually, I already do. Tomorrow, I think that I'll order a Razer mouse. The sluggishness of the Apple mice wears upon me. Hopefully, someone else will someday produce a good mouse with a trackball instead of a scroll wheel. I don't know why others haven't adopted this yet since it's so much nicer to use. For Apple mice however, the lousy excuse for buttons and the resistance to maintenance that the Mighty Mouse offered, rendered it second rate despite the trackball.
