    I'm sorry it didn't work out well for you cwa107.
    At least now I know I have to cancel my order, and for that I thank you for the feedback.

    Check out the Logitech m555b. It's a nice mouse.

    I just picked one up yesterday from my local Apple Store. This time I called ahead to make sure they were in stock. I haven't had time yet to really use it in a standard desktop/mousepad setting since it's the weekend and the house is still in just-moved-in-shambles with my Macbook Pro sitting on boxes with the mouse on another box, but overall with the exception of loss of the 'squeeze' button i'm liking it.

    I've set the secondary to be Exposť all windows and this works rather well with a little self-induced training. The lack of scroll wheel is going to work out well since, while I did like the MM scroll 'nipple' it did get a bit gummed up periodically. I do miss the middle click; you'd think Apple could simulate a middle click by doing a two fingered 'both buttons' but alas that does not seem to be the case.

    Ergonomically wise, I'd say that it's fine but then again haven't yet worked with it in an office environment. Overall I'd say it's an improvement with caveats in that once again it's a mouse you're either going to love or hate. I'd put me in the love category.

    I have no problems with it's tracking speed. Of course I also fall back to the trackpad from time to time but I do know that iMac, Mini owners, and that one guy with a Mac Pro don't have that option.

    If there's a tracking update released, will I be able to find it in the Software Update menu?

    I also instantly noticed the slow tracking. However, it's nice not to have to worry about a dirty trackball frequently flaking out.

    I have to totally disagree with cwa107. For me the mouse works just fine and I like it. Mind you I had to turn off the scrolling with momentum though as that made it too sensetive for my liking. But with that off I quite like the mouse.

    I think the logitech mice are all huge and chunky and too big for my small hands. I tried some of them and liked none of them.

    But I agree with walkerj. Either you love or hate the Magic Mouse. And for me I'm in the love category too.

    mines fine!
    not sure why yours doesn't work mine worked fine once I got the update when I first enabled the bluetooth feature that was a week ago last monday, and I'm no mac guru. I love the finger scroll as my wired mouse the wheel occasionally got stuck. mystified

    For me, this mouse has better tracking the mighty mouse. It's much faster. But I hear different reviews on both, pertaining to tracking.

    I wanted to like it, but I also returned mine after only a few hours. My big gripe was the ergonomics and the fact that it doesn't work with SteerMouse. I could have done without IF the mouse was comfortable. Just not the case for my hands.

    With the Zoom Mouse program, it's acceptable. I'd still like them to allow the tracking speed to be adjusted higher. For those with low resolution screens, it's fine. But at the default setting in 1440x900, it takes a good foot of physical space to move the mouse across the screen. How anyone can find that acceptable is beyond me.

    Are you talking about MouseZoom or Zoom Mouse? Can that make the curve more like <gasp> Windows </gasp>?
