getting there

The foray into macworld is not, so far, completely seamless. It appears that my beautiful wireless mighty mouse is actually a dog. Not to disparage dogs, of course.

When I have the mouse turned on and then turn on the computer the computer stalls and won't finish starting. This happened three times this morning and twice last night. Then when I do get it started and turn on the mouse, it tracks all right but clicking doesn't do anything. I end up using the trackpad, which I really do not like. I have never gotten comfortable with those.

After looking into the help files for the mouse and finding nothing related to these problems, I went on the web to a mac forum. It seemed the conclusion of most of the writers in there was "thank heaven for logitech". They had so much trouble with this mouse that they finally bought another. I'm considering doing the same. I'll go to the apple store with 'puter and mouse and see if they can resolve it, but I am not all that hopeful. Likely they'll uninstall and reinstall it, which is just annoying if you have to do it often, but we'll see. If I am not happy I will just ask for a refund because I have learned from these forums that they are likely to make you sit down and call applecare. I see no reason why I should call apple when I am in an apple store. That's just weird to me. I am beginning to think that the apple stores are for selling and teaching and have minimal involvement with problems. We'll see.
