    Innovative Scroll Ball and button

    Perfectly positioned to roll smoothly under just one finger, the Apple Mouse's Scroll Ball offers full 360-degree scrolling capability — up/down, left/right and diagonally. You can scroll long web pages, pan full-size images, maneuver around large spreadsheets, control a video timeline and more. And you can even click the Scroll Ball to access your favorite Mac OS X features such as Dashboard, Spotlight or Exposé.

    Touch-sensitive top shell

    It looks and feels like a sleek one-button mouse, but the Apple Mouse's smooth top shell hides a powerful secret: touch-sensitive technology under the shell detects which part of the mouse you're clicking, so you can both left-click and right-click. And if you prefer the simplicity of a classic one-button mouse, the Apple Mouse is up to the task. Just use the Mac OS X system preference pane to configure it how you want.

    Force-sensing side buttons

    When you give the Apple Mouse a squeeze, force-sensing side buttons can be configured to activate Mac OS X features such as Dashboard, Exposé or a whole host of other customizable features.

    Customizable

    If you have Mac OS X, the Apple Mouse can give you fingertip access to the special features you love. Simply use the system preference panel to configure the Apple Mouse in the way that makes you most powerful. Control the Scroll Ball's tracking and click functions, as well as the right, left and side click functions. And you even can set up different mouse profiles for every user account on your Mac.

After researching why it did this i found that the bar collects finger grease. Causing the sensor to not recognize the ball rotating. HERE'S THE FIX: get a piece of printer paper, and place the mouse upside down, with the ball touching the paper. Then rub the mouse ball against the paper in all directions. You should see your black finger grease on the paper. Repeat about every 2 months

      There is a fix for the broken scroll ball, don't lose hope!

You can fairly easily open (just be careful not to yank ope For those of you complaining about the scroll ball and getting dirt trapped beneath it, don't worry. You can fairly easily open (just be careful not to yank open the mouse, there are two cables connecting the top to the bottom) up the mouse and once it is opened its a piece of cake to get every little bit of dirt off. When you are inside you will see a small plastic square around the ball. Take this off and clean EVERYTHING, this includes removing the small black wheels that surround the ball (make sure not to lose them!). Carefully put everything back together and there you go, a resurrected mighty mouse. This works MUCH better than just cleaning the mouse off because you are getting rid of the grime that is trapped around the ball and below it. Hope this helps

      Great advice...

Press I've worked with the mighty mouse for sometime, and one of my cohorts taught me a neat trick. Place an ordinary piece of paper on a hard, flat surface. Press the ball against the paper and roll it around. It seems abusive at first, but all of the gross little chunks of dirt and such spew out on the paper. Thus making your mouse mighty once again.

      I'm so disappointed...this is useless

      This is the most beautiful but hopeless mouse I have ever owned. It's a single button so relies on where you press it to get left click and right click (I'm no This is the most beautiful but hopeless mouse I have ever owned. It's a single button so relies on where you press it to get left click and right click (I'm not using centre click). Every so often, the scroll ball just stops working or only scrolls in one direction. You then have to scroll like crazy to bring it back to life. Getting a right click (to open sub-menus) is nigh on impossible in some situations. You just sit there clicking away and eventually it realises you're doing a right click. I've had it less than a month and it's been pants, so thinking of returning for a refund before it packs up completely.

      Ball stops working

      I read the comments before buying this mouse, and for some reason I didn't listen. Everyone says that the ball stops working in a few months. I have had my mous I read the comments before buying this mouse, and for some reason I didn't listen. Everyone says that the ball stops working in a few months. I have had my mouse for two months, and the ball has stopped working. For a $50 mouse, I don't think I should be having this problem.

      Love this mouse.

      I've used several of these (starting with the original wireless version) since it was introduced and absolutely love it.

It feels good and substantial and the scroll ball is wonderful (just keep your hands clean, and you'll be fine). I've tried the magic mouse a few times and it drives me nuts. I've found I can depend on this mouse to help me navigate the system with ease, dexterity and speed. On the few occasions the scroll ball has gotten too dirty to respond, the paper trick has worked every time, and very quickly.
