      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.

      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.

      Without a shadow of a doubt the worst mouse i've ever used

      I'd give this a 0/5 if I could. I've used this mouse for about two months now. I was previously using a Logitech G502 on Windows, and just using the trackpad I'd give this a 0/5 if I could. I've used this mouse for about two months now. I was previously using a Logitech G502 on Windows, and just using the trackpad on my MacBook. I wanted a mouse for when the MacBook is docked. The movement scheme for this mouse is dreadful. There is absolutely no precision. This product is an example of choosing ascetics over function. I actually thought that maybe the macOS movement scheme for mice was just wrecked, then I popped my Logitech G502 and everything was fine with that mouse. The magic mouse is horribly unergonomic. It's incredibly uncomfortable to use. It has horrible weighting. It does not glide across a mouse pad or a clean surface easily. And worst of all, you can't charge it while using it because the genius who designed it put the charging port on the bottom. Having said that their are a few redeeming qualities, unfortunately they don't make this mouse worth a purchase. The touch features are really nice for switching desktops and the multi touch features for activating Mission Control. The natural scrolling is nice as well. If Apple could design a mouse like Logitech's chassis, ergonomics, buttons, and precision, and their own ascetics and touch features it would be a godsend. I wish I could return this piece of garbage. Oh well. Without a shadow of a doubt, the absolute worst Apple product I've ever purchased.

      Send me a Magic Mouse 1 and full keyboard please

      I just purchased an Imac, and of course it comes with the magic mouse 2. I'm writing this on my laptop because I'm for that stupid mouse to charge... You guys h I just purchased an Imac, and of course it comes with the magic mouse 2. I'm writing this on my laptop because I'm for that stupid mouse to charge... You guys have to be kidding me to actually approve a design like this. I only use your products and I've loved them so far, but now I'm faced with half a keyboard that needs to be charged and a mouse that I can't even use while I'm charging it... Things are starting feel a bit slimy with all these extra purchases I need to make.

      Apple’s Magic Mouse 2 Unfit for Purpose?

      The Magic Mouse that came with my 27” iMac is almost unusable. I say “almost” because I am still using it. But it frequently drives me nearly to tears. Spreadsh The Magic Mouse that came with my 27” iMac is almost unusable. I say “almost” because I am still using it. But it frequently drives me nearly to tears. Spreadsheets in particular are really difficult. The cell dances about as the mouse “mini-scrolls” when you try to select it with a click. Sometimes it takes a dozen clicks to get the cell selected and that’s when the whole sheet hasn’t scrolled down or sideways a couple of screens. That’s the problem, you see; as you press down to click on a cell, your fingertip on the surface of the mouse spreads. Flesh does this! But the mouse interprets it as a scrolling motion. Not a lot but it’s enough to move the sheet and the subsequent click is ignored. Its not just spreadsheets; it happens with all programs. Word processor pages scroll, graphics programs zoom in and out, and as I said, spreadsheet cells dance about under the pointer. It all went wrong when I bought the new iMac in 2015. It came with El Capitan and Magic Mouse 2. I assumed it was a “feature” of the new Magic Mouse with its rechargeable batteries but it’s clearly OS- related because my wife’s Magic Mouse 1 is now driving her mad ever since I updated her OS to El Capitan (from Snow Leopard!). Personally , I believe the mouse to be unfit for purpose. I know I’m not alone. I also know that Apple disagrees and has no intention of doing anything about it. Which leaves me rather stuck.
