    This program addresses my #1 complaint about the 1-button mouse (my only complaint actually, I prefer it in most ways to three button mice, dont ask me why, I dont know) - the lack of a scroll wheel. It allows you to scroll through pages simply by placing your mouse on the top or bottom of a "scrollview" ie. webpage, text document, etc. The catch: it only works in cocoa programs. Still, pretty nifty, no clicking, just scrolling. I've been using it for about 15 minutes and I think Ive already fallen in love. ;) It's got settings for scrolling speeds, delays, and alternate settings as well (using modifier keys). Also, it seems the nearer you get to the edge of the screen, the faster it scrolls. Check it out:

    MaxiMice...

    Sounds like a feminine hygene product...:eek:


    Seriously, though, it seems pretty nifty. Though I'll stick with my Logitech MX500:D

    maybe it should double as a maxi-pad too?

    your right about the MX500, i love mine! maxi mouse seems like it could get it the way. i love the optical mouse, but some when I'm in "production mode" it's nice to have all those buttons ;-).


    peace.

    I used it for about a week, then I trashed it.

    It gets agravating after a while, and interfears with your workflow.
