    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-sized images, manoeuvre around large spreadsheets, control a video timeline and more. And you can even click the Scroll Ball to access your favourite 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 as 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 customisable features.

    Customisable

    If you have Mac OS X, the Apple Mouse can give you fingertip access to the special features that 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 can even set up different mouse profiles for every user account on your Mac.

      Method to clean the scroll ball...

      I got my mouse around April 2007, the only problem was that my scroll ball clogged up and i could scroll down but up. So i went to my nearest Apple store and th I got my mouse around April 2007, the only problem was that my scroll ball clogged up and i could scroll down but up. So i went to my nearest Apple store and they fixed this by getting a plain piece of paper and rolling the scroll ball on the piece of paper (make sure you apply a bit of pressure if doing this!) This got rid of the dirt and avoided me buying a new mouse. So everytime my scroll ball get a bit clogged up i use this methhod to get rid of the dirt. Overall this is the best mouse i ever had!

      turn it upside down before you criticise!

      Instead of going off on one...just turn the mouse upside down and firmly roll it about on a flat surface...always works!

      Sorted The RollerBall Problems!!

      I have had problem after problem with my Mighty Mouse or should I say with all of them, I've had replaced since I got my Mac. Simple the rollerball just simply I have had problem after problem with my Mighty Mouse or should I say with all of them, I've had replaced since I got my Mac. Simple the rollerball just simply ceases to function after a few months of use in one direction or the other. I read a fantastic piece on here about using alcohol with a Q-Tip on the rollerball I had a disinfectant alcohol wipe and used it and I recommend it highly. The only downfall of the Mouse was the rollerball otherwise it's a fantastic bit of equipment, but now that problem has been rectified and I would now recommend it to anyone. Thank You

      Cleaning the scrolling button/Bluetooth mouse losing connection

      Although a piece of plain paper (or the desktop) work well, the best thing I've found to clean the scrolling ball is the lens wipes I use to clean my glasses. Although a piece of plain paper (or the desktop) work well, the best thing I've found to clean the scrolling ball is the lens wipes I use to clean my glasses. Every time I clean my glasses I then roll the scrolling ball around on the wipe - lasts for ages. The other complaint I had with the bluetooth mouse was that it kept losing connection. However, I now have a wired keyboard and wireless mouse and the problem has gone away.

Great mouse, yes the ball jams up every now and again, but clean as above and you're away. Just going to get a replacement, the cable connection has gone, but I've had it a few years, so not too upset.
