Apple's Mighty Mouse is it really all that its cracked up to be?

           I would like to start this post by saying that I love apple computers. I really do, I have 3 of them and I think that most everything that apple makes is brilliant. Having said that i would like to say that Apple's mighty mouse is not that great. I had two of these at one point and they both broke in less than a year. I think that the mouse was a good idea in theory but believe it or not the design and construction of the mighty mouse leaves something to be desired. First of all the scroller-ball in the mouse that did that cool 360 degree scrolling gets clogged with dirt and it stops working. The only way to fix it is to turn it upside down and roll it on a cloth. This works okay but will not solve all your problems, I wish there was a way to open it and clean it that way but there isn't. One of my mice the right click didn't work that well. Sometimes it did it just fine but other times it wouldn't work at all. One of the things that I liked about it was the shape of it, and I thought that the buttons on the sides where pretty cool and useful. Overall I think that the might mouse was not worth the money $69.99 for the wireless one.
