    Sick and tired of the Mighty Mouse scroll ball not working. I always take the time to wash my hands before using my computer and when the ball starts acting up I follow Apple's procedure on their site to "fix" the problem. Seems like after 3 months of heavy use the ball bites the dust and will not work even after extensive cleaning.

    I am now on the second mouse in six months and will be calling for another replacement tomorrow.

    I have the three year Apple care so I estimate I will have 12 different mice over the life of the computer. (12 X $50 =$600 over the life)

    I hope they come out with something new and improved VERY soon, otherwise back goes the Mighty Mouse every three months... :mad:

    I tried hard to like the mighty mouse, but eventually tossed it in favor of a more conventional mouse.

    I haven't had any of these problems with my MM and I have had it since Dec. I hope they don't start now
