My Mighty Mouse is again refusing to scroll down. It happens every now and then when it gets dirty from over use. I have cleaned it a time or two in the past and it worked fine. But now I can’t get it clean enough to scroll down and that’s really bugging me. I’ve gone back to my old Kensington mouse that’s working pretty good, but lacks additional, programmable buttons. 😀

In the past I’ve tried out a few cordless mice and have reverted back to corded every time. I’m not sure why, but I guess my preference isn’t one way or the other.

I recently checked out the Logitech MX Revolution mouse and learned to dislike it. It was great because it was loaded with buttons, cordless via BlueTooth, had a rechargeable base and a great form factor. What bugged me was the scrolling. The scroll wheel was sensitive and it seemed to always scroll a little bit whenever I moved the mouse. Or I’d spin the wheel and it’d go fast, so fast that when I changed documents it was still scrolling in them too. Basically it annoyed the heck out of me.

I’ve always avoided Microsoft mice in the past too, but more and more Mac people are telling me how great they are. Maybe that’s where I need to go this time.

So, if I go mouse shopping next weekend while the wife is out of town, do you have any suggestions?
