I know this is ages old but I have to ask as I would really like to know why Apple are still sticking with their one button design. Does anyone have any idea's why scroll wheel's and extra buttons are being ignored by offical products? I want an Apple designed, 2 button with scroll wheel, bluetooth enabled mouse!

I think this is as close as you'll get for now.

One-button mouse keeping you on the fence?

just go buy a mouse from macmice.com, they have 2 mouse buttons, a scroll wheel, and looks just like an apple mouse, BT version available.

I think they've been avoiding the second mouse button because you can jsut use control and click as a right click. I'm also glad there is no scroll wheel because you can just get used to clicking and dragging on the scroll bar in a window. Also the wheel would ruin the sleek look of the mouse.

I find being able to put my whole hand on the mouse, and being able to click my whole hand MUCH easier than having to click with a single finger..The Apple Mice just seems so much more natural..
