    Hey guys I don't know if this is the right place but I searched and couldn't find it. I just bought the magic mouse, I really like it but the surface is hard to explain almost sticky...kind of like the iphone screen without a screen protector on it. So what I am wondering is if I were to put a screen protector from the iphone or something simular on it would it still function correctly. And would it even work, the screen protector for the ipod touch or iphone is just a little to small then you have to worry about the home button hole, but that could just go at the bottom. I think this would work, just wondering if anyone else has this problem or has tried this out. Thanks.

    A screen protector for the iPod Touch/iPhone is almost certain not to work in the way you envision. Further...why not just dry your hands?

    My hands are dry, and just incase I have tried that many many times. I clean the thing about every twenty minutes, and wash and throughly dry my hands each time, that can't be the problem, I'm telling you the thing is sticky. And it is really annoying, I love the mouse for everything else but I just can't get over the feeling.

    It seriously sounds like your hands are either clammy or sweating; otherwise, there is no real reason the mouse should be "sticky"...
    At any rate, are you sure this isn't all in your head?

    LOL I wish, I don't know if sticky is the right word but it makes the most sense to me. Like when I try to scroll, my finger drags the mouse instead of gliding over the surface.

    I just check to see if i ever drag my mouse when swiping.

    I have developed the habit of holding the end of the mouse down with the heel of my hand when swiping.

    It dosen't feel natural at all but that makes a heck of a difference, maybe I can train myself to do that.
