How to clean the Mighty Mouse's scroll ball
Authored by: maggots on Apr 06, '09 04:20:17PM

This is definitely bad design, sorry. It looks good, but it just doesn't work - the mighty mouse scroll ball isn't up to the job. People have greasy fingers and desks are a bit mucky - make a device that works everyday in those conditions - that's the design brief. Apple, in this case, haven't delivered.
After spending 30 minutes of my valuable time piddling about with the damn thing, I suddenly came to the realisation that I've just spent more than the things worth, and plugged in a cheap as chips standard USB mouse that was lying on my desk. Job done - I'll drink the alcohol.
