Bluetooth Mighty Mouse

A look on the inside
More product releases from Apple

Apple has submitted a filing with the FCC for the Bluetooth version of its single-button right-clickable mouse, the Mighty Mouse. The new mouse will be exactly the same as the current Mighty Mouse except for its wireless feature. The mouse comes with a single button that does both left-click and right-click duties. One omni-directional pointing ball in the middle allows you to scroll in any direction.

The new Mighty Mouse uses two standard AA batteries and will be compatible with OS X 10.4.6 and later. Some users reported that the Mighty Mouse had some issues with right clicking, and often times the single fat button would click both sides of the mouse. It is unclear whether or not this has been addressed.

No release date is set for the new Bluetooth Mighty Mouse -- currently codenamed M6, but judging from the FCC filing, the new mouse is expected to be announced during Apple's WWDC conference during August 7th to 11th. Apple is also expected to make an announcement about its upcoming pro-level desktops -- speculated to be called the Mac Pro -- as well as server platforms based on Intel's Woodcrest Xeon processors during WWDC.

Bad idea....

You would have thought that Apple would have caught on to the fact that the first Mighty Mouse sucked and that it sold very poorly. They could just come out with a true two-button mouse, but no, that would be too much of a concession to the "other" platform, I guess.

Amen Reverend.

It is funny... Once you plug a REAL mouse into a Mac that actually fits your hand and clicks on YOUR terms, the Mac experience is infinately more pleasant & productive. I'd actually rather use the old angular ADB ball mice that shipped with the Mac LC's than the clear POS's they cram down their poor customers throats nowdays...

May the Apple Pro Mouse & derivitaves (and the designers thereof) all die slow torturous deaths.
