Apple PR where planned obsolescence, anti-environment and lack of user control are predominant, not to mention possible lack of user safety.


A mouse that uses conventional Ni-MH rechargeable batteries is a lot better for everyone - except for Apple.

You buy 4 rechargeable batteries and when the two inside the mouse are fully discharged you just change them and keep working.

Conventional batteries are interchangeable, so you get to use them in other equipment too.

They are also readily available and extend the lifespan of the mouse - with a lithium battery you either have to toss the mouse away when the battery dies - bad for the environment, since it's an otherwise functioning mouse that is going to have to be recycled ahead of time for no good reason other than Apple's profits, or hope that some company makes one for it (in case it's user accesible, which I'm assuming it's not).

Lithium batteries can swell and even catch fire and explode and in a closed, non user accessible enclosure, such as this mouse, it may very well start to get swollen and you won't even see the problem coming - bad for user safety, not to mention it can ruin the mouse.


Equipment where you can't readily remove the power source for safety, security, convenience and longevity reasons = big no.

This is the reason to criticize the mouse not the location of the charging port. If you're going to spend that kind of money on a mouse I'd like it to last for as long as I want to use it not as long as the battery holds.

They then blame you, the person who installed their OS for them,for the slowness of their internet at peak times. How many times do you need to explain that there are 1.5 billion people in China and, while they're upgrading their infrastructure to fibre, right now it's still not possible to accommodate everyone and that watching CNN (which genius watches CNN to get economics news?) through their proxy slows their internet down even more, as their VPN is pretty crappy and they should switch.

They are simply too clever to understand what you are saying.

Sounds like you worked in services. Same group of people man.

They thought this through though.
Solution: Buy another mouse.

I guess that's true, but how much dust can get on a sensor in a period of two hours? If there was enough dust to cause tracking issues, blowing it off once a month isn't too bad imo

Depends on your environment. I've seen computers used in environments where two hours of being upside down collecting dust would be enough to cause tracking issues, and would require a cleaning after every single charge.

Why are you comparing a "computer mouse" to a "car"?

They are completely different products and thus have completely different usage scenarios. Imagine if people had to jack up their cars on a lift every single time they had to refuel. Nobody would buy them because most people are not auto mechanics and do not want inconvenience forced on them by design, no matter how many times they have to refuel. It is a very poor comparison to make for justifying the utterly horrible design on Apples part. It really does not matter how often you have to charge the mouse, people would not be willing to sacrifice BASIC functionality to do so. There is a reason every single computer mouse has its power/data cord coming out of the front, NOT the bottom. Especially wireless models from other brands.

Just because YOU have had a good experience with the mouse does not in any way mean that it is a good design. Far from it, in fact. You have simply learned to adapt to it to make it work for you, that is all that is happening here. Nothing more, nothing less.

Because people are allowed to express their opinions on products that they do not necessarily own but dislike one or more aspects of its design or feature-set. Its called living in the real world.
