The Mouse BT II released

MacMice has released The Mouse BlueTooth II, an alternative to the new Bluetooth laser Mighty Mouse from Apple. The Mouse BT II features an updated design which removes the previous generation's clear shell surrounding white interior -- much like the Apple's wireless mouse. It now features a shiny white exterior without gloss and has two physical buttons (however, there is no click function on the scrollwheel). The Bluetooth transceiver included with The Mouse BT II supports the latest Bluetooth (1.2) standards, offering better battery life than its predecessor. In addition, it adds a new USB cradle for the mouse which now uses rechargeable AAA Lithium-Ion batteries. For scrolling, The Mouse II uses a notchless "Micro" scrollwheel stating that it eliminates the "the frustrations of a tiny trackball." It will ship in the US on August 9th for $70.

    This is a routine administrative test. You do NOT have to evacuate. *BEEP*

    Trust Jack Campbell?

    Jack Campbell sold MacMice to a Taiwanese firm that he consults for. I doubt that any business Jack Campbell has ties to is in the business of creating quality products for the Mac community. He's all marketing and no substance. Sure it looks nice, but a friend of mine bought the previous BT mouse from them, close to $100, and it felt like a 99 store toy. Shame on MacMice.

    c***

    I bought the original MacMice BT Mouse from them. Terrible Terrible Terrible. It was so jumpy it was unusable. It would jump inches for no reason while I was not even touching the computer or mouse. I worked with their tech support and it never got resolved, so I returned it.

    frustrations of tiny...

    The tiny trackball is one of the things I like about Apple's mouse. It's the side squeezy buttons I don't like.
