Apple Mighty Mouse Not So Mighty

ThinkMac‘s Rory Prior has written a couple of posts on his blog about his disappointment with the Apple Mighty Mouse. Its touch sensitivity means you have to lift your index finger off the mouse in order to right-click, amongst other annoyances. Latest post here.

That’s a shame because I quite liked the idea of a mouse that didn’t look like you needed 12 fingers to operate it and had some extra OS X features of its own. Of course you can do all this stuff with other mice (mouses?), but you’d expect to see a Mighty Mouse bundled with new Macs in the not-too-distant and this isn’t going to be good enough.

Anyway, Rory has saved me £40 for the time being, so cheers! 😉

    Glad to be of service! I wouldn’t expect to see the Mighty Mouse bundled until the Intel Macs ship, but that’s just my guess. Hopefully they will have refined them a bit by then.

    I’m desperate for a mouse that will help my RSI but haven’t seem to have found the perfect one yet. Guess I can cross this one off my list too.

    *Pedant alert* Incidentally, the great ‘mice’ v ‘mouses’ debate rages on, but I prefer mouses. Both are apparently correct.

    Claire you might find a USB trackpad is helpful if you’ve got RSI. They are quite hard to find in this country but there are a few places that sell the Cirque Easy Cat which works on OS X, it’s about £40 though.
