Review – Apple Magic Mouse.

Written by Randy on . Posted in Apple, Randy's Blog, Tech

This much hyped pointing device looks sleek and well designed.  It inspires the techno-lust that the gadget addicted have for smooth shiny objects. The much touted features and ease of use will make geeks drool.  In short you want one. The mouse allows you to scroll left/right/up/down with your finger without stumbling across buttons or grooves.  You can swipe to jump back and forth from webpages, pictures, etc.  It has a right and left click ability on the seamless surface which is very attractive. Now the bad part.  If you are less than even tempered this mouse will fly…  through the air and crash hard against a wall after the 10th time of scrolling 20 pages when you are trying to move an inch or left clicking when you are clearly right clicking or accidentally jumping back in your browser when you just spent 15 minutes filling out a form. For all it’s cool features and often flawless performance it’s frustrating bugs make you want to bash it with a hammer.  The only thing stopping you?  The $69 price tag! I was actually warned before I got the mouse, but couldn’t resist the geek appeal.  I read the reviews and played with one for a minute at the local Apple store.   I didn’t find anyone there with something bad to say.  I’ve used one at work and at home on my iMacs (the mouse comes bundled with the iMac) for the last few months and the both behave the same.  Same bugs, same frustration.  Not worth it for a sometimes cool feeling. Save your money.  This mouse is at the upper end of pricy even for a cordless.  Get a Regular Apple, Logitech or even Microsoft mouse before losing your cool with this attractive sleek sometimes flawless mouse from hell. This is of course my personal opinion.  If you don’t like it or don’t believe me, well I tried and don’t say I didn’t warn you.
