The Mighty Mouse is Mightily Lacking
I’ve been a fan of Apple products for years, but when I got my first Mac a year ago, the first thing I did was chuck the included Mighty Mouse and replace it with a Logitech MX Revolution. You’ll often hear fanboys scream about how unique and innovative the Mighty Mouse is, but anyone who uses their computer for professional work realizes the limits of the mouse. MG Siegler at Tech Crunch hit the nail on the head.
The Mighty Mouse sucks. Period. It feels very cheap and flimsy to the touch, and as Siegler states in his article, the buttons require too much pressure to activate. When I first tried out the mouse, I remember how pressing one of the side buttons would press the other side button. Not to mention Apple put no thought into the ergonomics of the product. Apple has always been ahead of the curve in most areas of the computer industry, but when it comes to mice, Cupertino has a long way to go.
