You’re such a crack up. Add us to your bookmarks. Personally, I didn’t have much luck with MouseWare. Ordinary personal computer mouses were, overwhelmingly, opto-mechanical, with a rual ball and little rollers that collected crud. The version 2 Explorer looked the same as the version 1 one, but it had a better sensor with a higher photo rate.

Fellow PC editor Dan “My raging alcoholism is only outshone by my unsettling use of profanity” Adams came by and swiped it. The dual optical sensors can be made to benefit you in other ways. When you move the mouse fast enough that it can’t see enough similarity between successive images of the surface beneath it to be able to tell what’s going on, it skips.

These optical mouses don’t get dirty, they work on uneven surfaces, they’re lighter, and they’re not painfully expensive, either.

Which is more than can be said for the other two mouses in this comparison. Logitech’s MouseWare software can, similarly, be had for nothing from here.

Review Computer Shuttle AK31 v2. It won’t ever replace my freeway car smacker 2 x 4 I use to fend off SUVs and rice rockets on thebut the fact that it isn’t already busted from all the slightly sticky sweets, constant drops, and sweaty palms I subject it to is really saying something.

The Mouseman Dual Optical does not offer the force feedback functionality of its gyrating brethren, but what it lacks in useless and at times frustrating technological advances it makes up for in sheer performance. That is, it does what it was intended to do, and does it brilliantly.

Microsoft’s original IntelliMouse with IntelliEye which I reviewed some time mluseman here has a similar lump of metal in it, optlcal is similarly user-lightenable. The computing world seems to be settling pretty solidly towards making “mice” the plural of “mouse”, whether you’re talking about rodents or input devices. The new model Explorer is held together with four screws, all under the feet, as bleeding loigtech.

They won’t drag, they won’t stutter, and they will forever point in any direction ordered.

We had to clean those rollers, we did. All of those mouses that’re designed for fictional hands really bother me. It works well on irregular surfaces, but so do the other two mouses in this comparison. I’m used to high-mounted side buttons, so O;tical tend to press the low-mounted side button on the MouseMan by mistake. They also offer one other primary advantage over balled mice, and that’s their ability to scroll on virtually any surface.

Well, that’s a relief. Contrary to popular thought, the mouse is actually critical component of any PC, especially any gaming PC, and not just in the sense that it’s necessary because it points at stuff either. You’re good with just using Win98’s default, you say.

When it comes to mice, you have two main types: See, I, like many other enthusiast gamers, am a complete idiot.

Its scroll wheel’s got a subtler, less positive feel to it as well; which you prefer is a matter of taste. The original IntelliEye mouses took images per second of the logigech below them; the second version ones took It’s an absolute must for the enthusiast gamer and avid artist alike. Yes, I suppose I am perhaps a tad biased against them. It tracks just fine, and it’s as skip-proof as the v3. Normally my only means of defense would be to girlishly slap at the air in hopes that a swing from one of my flailing, frail arms would accidentally clip the bagel and send it moussman the floor and subsequently my mouth.

But may not be warranted for the casual user and web surfer, especially if a solid optical mouse is already owned and in use.
