Apple Mighty Mouse

Reading time ~1 minute

As previously stated, at work I use a Logitech® MX™1000 mouse. (Aside: is it just me, or do you hate it when companies litter their product names with ®™ symbols? I like to stick it to them by vocalizing them. “Yeah, I really love the Logitech ar em ex tee em one-thousand, it’s great!)

Anyway, Apple have just brought out a new mouse called the Mighty Mouse, and the other day (yeah, OK, the day it was announced…) I drove to the Birmingham Apple Store to try one out. They didn’t have any in stock, so I left empty handed. I’ll probably wait for the Bluetooth version now.

Oh, when I said I left empty handed, I did in fact leave with an iPod Shuffle Sports Case and a copy of The Sims 2.

Don’t make the same mistake I did! If you have a G4 Mac (like my 15” PowerBook), don’t by The Sims 2. It runs like a dog on the G4. You get about 3 frames per second if there are more than about 4 Sims in your house.

I bet The Sims (version 1) would run fine - I wish I’d bought that instead.
