    I am a long time trackball user, and I need to get a blutooth pointing device for my PB. I can't go USB wireless, because one of the programs I have to use has a USB Dongle which uses one of my two ports, and the other will be used for USB Keys, printers, etc.

    Apparently, the only bluetooth Trackball out there is The Ball. Has anyone used it? anyone have any experiances with it? I use a Logitech trackball with a thumb ball now, would this one be a lot different to use?

    If it sucks, does anyone have any suggestions of a good bluetooth mouse?

    Thanks!

    I do. It's good. I don't like the charging cradle though. It should have been mini-usb charging.

    Have you ever used a thumbball? Will it be a big thing to switch? Thanks!

    I've used trackballls for a while... from logitech versions to kensington's orbit line to SpacePilot... I like the Ball... it's small and wireless. I also like the IOGear Bluetooth Optical Mini Mouse. I actually have both paired to my iBook. I use the ball when I don't have the space to use a mouse.
