    I never used the hockey puck mouse but it looks really ugly and so unergonomic. something Apple will never understand.

    None of them. If it has the :apple: logo on, then it is perfect. :D

    I'd throw in the Mighty Mouse for good measure. What a waste of money.

    Basically any Apple mouse. People just think the wired mouse is fine because it's free and matches their iMac well.

    A $599 console in 1995? WTF were they thinking?! (~$916 when you account for inflation!)

    I really loved the hockey puck mouse, until I had to use it for longer than 30 seconds. After a while you could get used to how awful it was, but by that time hope is lost...

    Well, it wouldn't have been so bad...if they a games for it. It would still be a stinker at $50, since your game library would consist of a handful of games. It's like being an Admiral of the Bolivian Navy.:p (Bolivia is a landlocked nation)

    I would say any attempt by Apple to redefine the mouse. They seem to go from bad to comically bad. Every Mac user I know in real life, and I mean EVERYONE OF THEM, doesn't use the mice that comes from Apple.

    Really, who in their right mind at Apple ever thought it more intuitive or efficient even to have to press a key on the keyboard to extend mouse button functionality?

    I'd say it was the original iTunes implementation for the Motorola ROKR E1. When Jobs demo'd back in 2005 you could just sense his frustration with the whole thing.

    Yeah, gotta agree there. I'm kind of hoping that at some point during the Tim Cook era, they'll get over themselves and release an actual 2-button mouse. I know they like to keep things simple but if you can't figure out a two-button mouse, there's just no hope :)

    Until then, Microsoft mice all the way for me.

    But as for this poll...gonna go with iOS 7. It's not a matter of "just give it some time" -- I've been using it ever since the beta. I wish I could go back to 6.

    How can people say the retina MacBook Pro? :( It's one of Apple's best products!

    I'd have to say any mouse from Apple before the Magic Mouse.

    Maybe because we don't think it's the best product.
