ARS: I may be in a minority at the Ars Orbiting HQ, but I've been a big fan of the Apple Mouse (formerly known as the Mighty Mouse) since its introduction. I like the styling and the mouse's functionality, and unlike some of my relatives, I can remember that something different will happen if I click with my finger on the right side of the mouse. Of course, the Apple Mouse has its drawbacks, the chief of which is the tendency of the scrolling orb to get gummed up with palm cheese and stop working correctly.
When Apple announced the Magic Mouse, the feature list intrigued me, especially the gestures. Since getting my MacBook Air, I've become a big fan of the three-fingered swipe for navigation when surfing. So Apple's move to bring that functionality to its mouse lineup made ordering one an easy decision. I placed my order the day the Magic Mouse was announced, and it arrived this past Friday.
