Product Description

Amazon.com

Amazon.com Product Description How do you improve on the mouse that has everything? Remove its tail. Mighty Mouse--the mouse that changed the way you scroll--has gone wireless via fast and secure Bluetooth technology. Now you can take that seamless, touch-sensitive, 360-degree scrolling design with you wherever you go.

Like its namesake, Mighty Mouse puts powerful precision in a pint-sized package. With all its clicking capability tucked neatly under the seamless top shell, Mighty Mouse boasts drop-dead good looks and wireless portability, too. And then there’s that ingenious Scroll Ball--the tiniest such mechanism ever used in an input device. No wonder it’s a wonder.


Scroll, zoom, and more easily.


The Mighty Mouse is sleek. View larger.


Enjoy precision laser tracking.
Have a Ball
Try reading this web page without scrolling. Every day you navigate through files, email and web pages by scrolling horizontally and vertically. Now you can do it all with your fingertip. Mighty Mouse’s Scroll Ball features miniature sensors that allow you to manipulate what appears on your screen merely by moving your finger. Scroll up and down to read a long web page or document. Scroll back and forth to follow a timeline in iMovie or keep track of a large spreadsheet in Excel. But getting from point A to point B doesn’t always mean traveling in a straight line. Take a spin on the mouse that’s not afraid of kitty-corner. With Mighty Mouse’s Scroll Ball, you can scroll at a 45-degree angle — even roll in 360-degree sweeps. Pan across a massive digital image in iPhoto or Adobe Photoshop. Take in a whole PDF in Preview. The Scroll Ball moves the content on your screen just as your eyes might move across a printed page. The Scroll Ball acts as an extra mouse button too, offering you one of a few clever clicking options.

All-Terrain Mouse
The wireless Mighty Mouse finds its way courtesy of a laser tracking system that boasts 20 times more sensitivity to surface detail than traditional optical tracking engines. So you can glide the wireless Mighty Mouse over more surfaces--metal, wood, plastic, even your denim (or tweed) clad leg.

It Squeezes, Not Squeaks
It wouldn’t be fair to call Mighty Mouse a two-button mouse with one button. Especially when it responds to pressure from your fingers in four different places. Besides the left- and right-click functions, the Scroll Ball clicks down to act as a third mouse button. And force-sensing buttons on either side of Mighty Mouse respond when you press in with your finger and thumb. Perfect for Mac OS X users, the side buttons are pre-programmed to activate Exposé, so you can view all your windows with a squeeze. Of course, you can also customize Mighty Mouse to open whatever you choose--Spotlight, Dashboard or any application when you have Mac OS X v10.4.6 or later.

The Button That Wasn’t
Alas the fate of the one-button mouse in today’s multibutton world. Who has time for intuitive, elegant design when there is so much clicking to do? Thanks to a smooth top shell with touch-sensitive technology beneath, Mighty Mouse allows you to right click without a right button. Capacitive sensors under Mighty Mouse’s seamless top shell detect where your fingers are and predict your clicking intentions, so you don’t need two buttons — just two fingers. Click on the left side to use Mighty Mouse in its simplest, single-button form. Click on the right to access contextual menus within applications and edit, copy, label or download from your mouse. It’s simple sleight of hand.


The Mighty Mouse offers plenty of functionality.


The mouse works with 1 or 2 AA batteries.
More Mouse, Less Mess
Perfectly portable, the wireless Mighty Mouse goes anywhere you do and banishes clutter in its wake. A secure Bluetooth connection keeps you in control from up to 30 feet, and you can forget lugging around a bulky charging dock: the wireless Mighty Mouse works with one or two AA batteries. Two last longer, but one works just as well and packs ultralight.

A Mac and Mouse Game
Because Apple engineers designed Mighty Mouse to work in perfect harmony with the operating system, you get the full Mac OS X experience from the comfort of your mouse. Take that Scroll Ball button, for instance. Pre-programmed to launch Dashboard, it gives you access to a world of information in a single click. Mighty Mouse’s side buttons show you all your open windows in Exposé with a squeeze. Of course, you can program both of these buttons--along with Mighty Mouse’s right- and left-click functions--to launch Dashboard, Exposé, Spotlight, Application Switcher or any application you choose. Mac OS X gives you the capability, thanks to an intuitive System Preference pane.

Switch Users, Not Mice
Once you set your Mighty Mouse preferences, your Mac will remember them, even if you share your computer with others. Each account on your Mac has its own preferences, so everyone can use Mighty Mouse differently. Program Mighty Mouse as a simple, single-button mouse for a youngster. Set buttons to launch user-specific apps. Limit application access for children by pre-programming Mighty Mouse and locking System Preferences using parental controls. No matter how they work or play, Mighty Mouse makes everybody happy--all from one Mac.

X-Mouse
Mighty Mouse helps you make the most of Mac OS X. Pre-configured to launch Dashboard from the Scroll Ball button and Exposé from the side squeeze buttons, Mighty Mouse gives you lots of other options:

  • Program the Scroll Ball button to launch Application Switcher, then move from one task to another with a scroll.
  • Set any button to start a new Spotlight search and find what you’re looking for, fast.
  • Change the side buttons from displaying all windows in Exposé to displaying only the windows in the current application.
  • Launch any application you choose from any button on Mighty Mouse: Just select "other" from the button drop-down menu and browse for applications in the Finder.
  • Designate either top-shell button as your primary--the perfect solution for southpaws.
  • Activate screen zoom with the keyboard and Scroll Ball.

What's in the Box:
Apple Bluetooth Wireless Mighty Mouse, 2 AA batteries, software CD, instructions.

Product Description

This mouse also includes the clickable Scroll Ball, an innovative feature that allows you to scroll in any direction, not simply up and down.

If you think you will buy this mouse and it won't happen to you, go ahead.
Benjamin Matz
The entire mouse is the button, but it senses right and left click by which side has a finger on it when it clicks.
Sam
Because I had the mouse for so long before I figured out what the problem was, Apple was unwilling to help me.

This is a great mouse in every way save one: the scroll ball has a limited life for all practical purposes. Once it gets dirty (and just like the old pre-optical ball mice, the scroll ball, made of hard rubber, eventually gets dirty), the scroll bar becomes unreliable and then, eventually, useless. Apple's recommended cleaning techniques are ineffective; they might work for 30 minutes or so, but that's it. Though I'm a diehard Mac guy, I'm replacing this with something from Logitech or Microsoft. Too bad, because the design is very elegant and effective in every other respect.

Many of the reviews are negative because the mouse "stops working in one direction" or some similar symptom. Most of the time this is due to dirt getting onto the sensors.
Here's how to clean it. Forget the alcohol. Forget removing the ball.
Get a clean sheet of white printer paper.
Turn your mouse off, then turn it upside-down.
Place the mouse on the paper (upside-down) so that only the ball is touching the paper.
Using FIRM pressure, roll the mouse in all directions on the paper - in circles, in lines. After a bit of time, you should see little black specs on the paper, if your mouse was dirty.
Roll the mouse this way for about a full minute.
Now turn it back on and try it. It should work like new.
Do this every time your mouse starts acting up.

I used one of these for years, and was constantly frustrated until I found this solution. I now use the Magic Mouse, for which there are no issues relative to the ball, but it has its own issues.

It's great at the beginning, but sooner or later, the scroll-down function will literally die. There is no non-destructive way to clean the ball to restore its function.

While for folks who have lived in Appleland for a long time - this might look like a big improvement; coming from windows, I was underwhelmed.

I just moved from Windows to a Mac and am still in the habit of right-clicking a lot. That was one big reason why I bought this mouse instead of using what came along with my iMac. Unfortunately, it misreads a lot of my clicks.

It seems, hardware wise there is only one button on this mouse and the software is supposed to guess (I imagine based on where you press) if its a right click or left click.

This may be very elegant looks-wise but the software is not nearly as ideal as the hardware would be. It considers too many of my left clicks as right clicks and vice versa.

2 stars for good compatibility with all mac products and nice looks but I wont recommend it.

Simple and clean design yet packed with many cool features, all of which really do work great. It has a nice feel to it, the scrolling works great, it's awesome to use with Dashboard and of course, it's wireless! The ONLY thing I hate about this mouse is replacing the batteries every two weeks. My advice, shut it off when you're not using it or you'll go crazy with all the battery replacements! Other than that, you'll dig it.

I purchased the mighty mouse and gave it a try for about 5 days now. The design of the mouse is very creative, however, it could use improvement.

PROS :

1) You can't beat bluetooth, and the battery life on this mouse is excellent.

2) It looks slick! Apple has the right idea and a good concept, but it could use some major improvement.

CONS :

1) When right clicking, it tends to stick or not work at times.

2) The tracking speed will need to be set to the highest level if you are running your video in high resolution, such as 1680x1050. Even at the highest setting, I found myself constantly picking up the mouse to reposition it on the mouse pad. I have tried both standard and "special" laser mouse pads with the same results.

3) If you have large hands, hang it up. After 4-5 days of using this mouse, I gave it a chance, but tonight I ran out to storage and dug out my old logitech wireless. In my opinion, the mighty mouse is too thin, and with large hands your mousing hand tends to start cramping up frequently.

4) The side buttons take quite a bit of pressure to activate - to the point that they feel useless. The side buttons should be sensitive enough where as the user shouldn't have to consciously think about using them. As it is, having to apply the pressure typically makes you look at the mouse, then at the screen, then at the mouse to see if something happened - you feel out of control.

5) After being back on my old logitech, for the last half hour, I think I'm going to part with the might mouse. I figure I could return it to Apple, but, I'll eat the shipping costs -- thus, it will likely be sold / auctioned off and let the buyer pay the shipping.

Verified Purchase
The BlueTooth Mighty Mouse is a WONDERFUL improvement over the original Mighty Mouse and clearly, the best bluetooth mouse available ---- a direct comparison to other mouse's available -

PROS:

1. BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL MIGHTY MOUSE --- I liked the original (wired) Mighty Mouse, but many of the buttons were difficult to use --- the scroll wheel had a tight grip and the side buttons were impossible to use --- this new Mighty Mouse has a much better scroll wheel (ball) that is a lot looser and easier to use --- in addition, the side buttons are very functional, in addition to all the other buttons

2. BUTTONS ---- I can't stand mouses like the Logitech ones that are filled with so many buttons, that you basically can't help but to press the wrong button here and there --- the Mighty Mouse has an excellent set of buttons, not too many, and not too little --- best of all, they are all laid out perfectly, with software that let's you decide which button will designate what function --- the best set of buttons and layout available on any mouse!

3. LASER TRACKING ---- one reason I often do not use bluetooth mouses is because the tracking is unstable --- the mouse can't keep in line with movements --- however, I'm very pleased with this Mighty Mouse --- the tracking really does feel like a solid wired mouse, making me believe that Apple really invested a lot of good engineering into making the tracking of this mouse excellent

CONS ---

1. SOFTWARE --- the software is easy to use and setup, however, it doesn't seem to work with OS X Panther (10.3) --- so if you are not using Tiger (10.4) then you may wanna reconsider purchasing this mouse, unless Apple gives software for 10.3, but doesn't seem so?
