:D

I love Tech but there are some things I guess I never think much of since they always work and my standard Dell USB mouse has been the case.

Till it started giving me trouble 6 months ago...:D I really should have replaced it sooner as it's cramped my style in bringing over threads from DU. And I got SLW a new one just recently when her old one started acting up.

I got her a MS one and today I picked up a Logitech version when we were over at the Target on Fruitville.

The new mini-USB connectors are a welcome relief compared to the "bulky" one she used to have.

I like my wireless mouse. It's made by Microsoft and I've used it for a couple of years. Nice.

Don't have a wireless mouse but I just picked up one of these last week because the scroll wheel wasn't working right on the one I had.....

It's the Razer Naga gaming mouse. The 12 buttons on the side are programable to keys on the keyboard.

I'm not a fan of the wireless mouse. Don't like changing batteries.

The piece that "slides" out is a pain on every one I have ever had to deal with. You hold it like they say to hold it, and apply pressure as instructed and it won't come off. So you end up sticking a knife blade or jewelers screwdriver in the seam to pry it off.

I know what you mean, also I end up with so much wireless stuff the signals start interfering with each other.

The only thing I had that did that was when I had my old Airport (Jupiter II model) and then when the 900Mhz phones came out, they interfered with the signal to the iBook which I assume was using the 900 band before the phones came out. So I went back to the old phones for a while, and then got rid of the house phone entirely.

My sister just got a new Microsoft wireless mouse with the micro send unit, which puts my mind at ease a bit because I worried that the thumb-drive sized unit sticking out was waiting to break the case.

She bought a Toshiba Satelite three months ago, and I can't believe the damned thing doesn't have bluetooth. Would it have cost mort than a dollar for them to have included it?

Speaking of cool, have you seen the wi-fi memory cards? They cost as much as a camera, and the cameras OUGHT to be equipt with bluetooth (but aren't) so the concept is cool when the price comes down.

For some reason they have quit putting bluetooth on laptops, bluetooth was great. On some laptops especially dell, you have an extra pcie slot inside you can use, don't try the combo wifi/bluetooth cards they are nothing but trouble.

I have been using Logitech Trackmans in various forms for over a decade.

For machine programming they are great because there isn't enough room to move a mouse around on the platform and most people really hate them so they are not as prone to theft,

That's the one I like too, they have a new model that reads the ball with laser rather than infrared.

I just picked up the wireless model back in November for home use and so far I love it.

I have had to buy a few corded ones on eBay because they discontinued the corded style. The only reason I use that at work is because on the 18 inch wide programming shelves, mice get knocked off easily and frequently and the cord stops it from hitting the ground.

I thought Amazon still had them, but they are out now. I bought one from then 5 months ago.

I had one very similar to that one but it was hard to keep clean and I finally retired it.
