    There is a Bluetooth one.

    For the rollerball to work it needs to be pressed slightly at the same time. Are you doing this?

    I used the mighty mouse for about a week before going back to my wireless Microsoft mouse. :rolleyes:

    The link is to the standard single-button BT mouse - at present there isn't a Bluetooth enabled Mighty Mouse...

    For the record I've recently purchased a MM myself and must say it's simply fantastic; dunno what all the moaning is about it! Although I do find myself heading for the keyboard instead of utilising the "right click"!

    Horses for courses and all that...

    The ball most likely just needs to be clearned. Grab a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. Use the q-tip soaked in alcohol to rotate the ball around. Make sure to get er good and covered, then turn it over with the ball facing down. Push down with a little force and move it quickly back and forth and in all directions.

    Works for me every time.

    There are two types of Mighty Mouse though.

    MA086ZM/A - Rev. A (Ball clogs more easily)
    MA086B/A - Rev. B/Feb '06 onwards (Generally more reliable)

    I stand corrected. :)

    The might mouse is alright, and believe me I wanted to like it, but there were a few things my old mouse simply did better.
