I don't think that Apple listens to its users at all - there have been numerous complaints about the mouse in various forums for some time and, as far as I can see, no response from Apple. I ditched both the mouse and the keyboard after a day of use and I wrote to Ives the design director and didn't even get a 'Thank you for your letter' response. Ives and his team are very good at designing pretty objects but appear to have no concept of usability behind the design. The latest cock-up is the new iPod nano which has the camera right where your fingers hold the device, leading to pictures of fingers, rather than pictures of the scene. Physical design - beautiful, usability design - rubbish.

PS to the last - I'm using a Msoft ergonomic keyboard and a Logitech wireless mouse - both properly designed for human hands and fingers!
