      Worst design of an Apple product that I've encountered

      Let me begin by saying that the original Magic Mouse was and is my all-time favorite mouse, hands down. I love it, and would easily give it 5 stars. But the Let me begin by saying that the original Magic Mouse was and is my all-time favorite mouse, hands down. I love it, and would easily give it 5 stars. But then they "upgraded" it to the Magic Mouse 2. For all the ingenious designs that Apple has come up with, how did they ever manage to think up the idea of putting the recharging port on the bottom of the mouse, which makes it completely useless while recharging! All the designers would have needed to do is look at a corded mouse: put the recharging port on the front... and voila! A rechargeable cordless mouse that can temporarily function as a corded mouse while its being recharged! Seriously Apple, how did no one see this problem? I am very disappointed in you guys on this one. I'm sure Steve is too.

      Stupid AND great

The feel of the mouse, the functionality, the build quality are all class-leading... but who in the world thought that sticking the charging port on the base of the mouse was a good idea?! And not allowing the mouse to be used whilst being charged? Seriously?! WHY? What a stupid thing to do Apple. What does someone do when they're working and their mouse runs out? Am I expected to buy two of these things??? Aargh. Here's a solution, Apple... what if the mouse could become a wired mouse whilst charging? Stick the port in the front-end of the mouse and have it work whilst charging so I don't have to use my laptops trackpad for intricate design work.

      Who are these people?

      Is someone paying irrational, cantankerous antagonists to write one-star reviews? Anything they don't love is automatically "the worst thing ever!" All of these Is someone paying irrational, cantankerous antagonists to write one-star reviews? Anything they don't love is automatically "the worst thing ever!" All of these extremely low reviews are incredible... as in "not even remotely credible." This mouse looks and feels like the last one - only a little lighter. Ergonomics, weight, appearance, functionality... all great things, and all much better than your average third-party product. The mouse plugs in to charge... and this is somehow horrible? Upside-down is a bit weird and you don't use it while it is charging. How does that make this a one-star product? Don't you ever sleep? Can't you remember to plug your mouse in overnight once a month? This is way better than having to change the batteries every two weeks. Do you gripe about your phone because you have to put it down once in a while to charge it? So it doesn't work with some of the older system software? Well in most cases, neither should you. How does that make this product abysmal? Your wrist hurts? That is not the mouse's fault. Operator error does not make a product atrocious any more than a drunk driver makes a a particular brand of car a hazard to drive. This mouse is a great product. An improvement over the already-good last version. Would I prefer a third party mouse over this one? No thanks. I'll give my five stars right here without apology.

      99% of people would be better buying the Magic Mouse 1

      So I originally thought all the negative comments bashing Apple's placement of the charging point on this thing were pretty funny, and fairly nit-picky. Surpris So I originally thought all the negative comments bashing Apple's placement of the charging point on this thing were pretty funny, and fairly nit-picky. Surprise, they weren't. In all honesty I can't find a single reason why the MM2 is better than the MM1. If anything there are several reasons it's clearly worse to live with. As a professional designer and someone who is on their computer all day long, I'm lucky to get 24 hours worth of use on one charge, so now I have to make sure I charge this thing just about every night, or risk running out of juice mid work day. Because you can't just swap batteries like the MM1, recharging the MM2 means about an hour of downtime. And that ever so cleverly placed charging port makes sure you can't use the mouse while it's charging. (Really missed a great opportunity to have the port on the front so the mouse could function like a standard wired mouse when charging). For a company that prides themselves on delivering superior design, Apple absolutely missed the mark on the Magic Mouse 2. Save yourself $40 and buy the MM1. Or trade me your MM1 for my brand new MM2!

      Best Mouse Ever

      The reviews don't do this mouse justice.

In comparison to what's on the market with a windows mouse, it probably is pricy if you were to use it on a windows computer. However, this is not some second option mouse. I like the wireless capabilities, touch sensor on top, style, weight, standby sensor (save power) and curser sensitivity. I would like to be able to charge the mouse while using it, but the battery lasts for ages (guessing a month). I really like the touch scroll capabilities on top of the mouse. You can touch and scroll on the mouse anywhere on the top surface. Note: the scroll touch can scroll up/down and left/right in Safari and Excel spreadsheets. This is cool. I scroll diagonally in excel now. Try doing that with a windows mouse.

      Most Poorly Designed piece of Technology Since the Zeppelin

      Everything about this mouse is absolutely perfect- it's a wonderful mouse- except for it's achilles heal, which metaphorically speaking, is massive and impossib Everything about this mouse is absolutely perfect- it's a wonderful mouse- except for it's achilles heal, which metaphorically speaking, is massive and impossible to miss. Why on god's green earth would you make it so that you can't use this mouse while it charging? Why would you put the plug in the bottom of the mouse? WHY? Typically, when Apple does something of this nature, it's because you need to spend more money at apple on some extra adapter, but in this instance, you can. you just have to suffer. so when you're sitting at work and your mouse stops working. you stop working. and your company loses money. Please fix this apple. I've spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on your products. Please explain this to me or please buy me a mouse that doesn't have this problem.
