Goodbye “Mighty Mouse”

Denver Based Photographer David Hilgier

The last “Mighty Mouse” in my possession was put out of its miserable existence last week. From the pea sized scroll wheel that jams at the sight of a spec of dust to your inability to consistently distinguish left and right clicks, no longer will you be an ergonomic plague on my work-flow. There is nothing mighty about a mouse that needs to be flipped upside down and dragged along a piece of paper to return function to its scroll wheel. Your malfunctioning scroll dot ceased operation and interupted my work last week for the final time, therefore, by unanimous vote in the office, you were beheaded. It goes without saying that I will not be upgrading to the “Magic Mouse”. Perhaps this current offering provides a better experience, however, I’m not about to wager 69 bones to find out.
