why are many of you guys so down on a wireless mouse, I have one and it is so much better than a wired one, mine has a dock for recharge, if it didnt need a conection to the computer because of bluetooth it would be great, just have rechargable batteries and the problem is solved, I forget that my mouse has batteries.

Hate to tell you but you dont have a bluetooth mouse. MS has the only bluetooth mouse out right now and it does not have a cradle. Also, as of now bluetooth on the mac is not good enough for graphic design... the bluetooth's error correction is horrible and it causes the cursor to jump around.
PS your mouse is a proprietary wireless mouse... im guessing a kensington?
We can't even get Apple to give us 2 mouse buttons, and you want to go 3D ?Originally posted by Analog Kid
Then I'd say, if the mouse is wireless why are we keeping it stuck in 2 dimensions?
These guys took a baby step in the right direction:

Having a firewire charge the mouse really doesn't have pluses or minuses over a regular docking station. The only down sides to firewire would be that it charges slower and if your computer is off, the mouse doesn't get charged. The down side to a pluge-in-the-wall charger is you lose/need you find a extra outlet.

I would rather have a firewire (or even USB) charge cable than a docking station-- the main reason I'd like a BT mouse is for convenience with a laptop, and it'd be a lot easier to pack a simple charging cable than a cradle and a power supply for it.
