I'm finding that cleaning the ball WILL be an eventual necessity! Today I had my first "sticking" ball, with something stuck under it. Blowing and moving it got it out, but I'm telling you. One day it'll be like that old ball mice at the computer lab!

Anyone know how to clean the thing?

The only thing Ive seen mentioned is using a moist cloth to dab the ball, needless to say, that doesnt seem like it will be usefull if you let the grime get away from you.

Well mice are dirty creatures....

Anyways, but this is a problem. I really dont see why Apple didnt go with individual touch sensors for the left/right click, and now it seems like a pressure sensitive "dome" would be a better idea than the traditional ball.
