I mean, is it any less difficult to plug in a USB mouse than a PS2? I don't understand the advantage of one over the other? Can someone explain this?
Sorry to be dumb, but why do you need 2 mice?
Not dumb, and I knew someone was going to ask.
I have a Logitech Wireless mouse and KB, which I couldn't live withouth (the mouse at least). There seems to be some sort of problem with the two when I have both a mouse button and a few keys pressed and my mouse button will get "stuck". In Win98 I was able to fix this with some driver switching, but it doesn't work in XP.
It usually only happens in FPS shooter games where my character will keep shooting or running, so I plugged in my old corded mouse and switch over when I play those games (I wish my old wheeless one worked) and continue to use the wireless for everything else.
That is the only thing that Apple has done right in my opinionApple IMO is actually at the forefront of a lot of technologies and for that I have to give them a big thumbs up. (CDR, CDRW, DVD, DVDR/RW, etc) OSX IMO was not a huge thing but just a step forward (finally) in GUI for apple. I especially didnt like how it operated when you installed it over a previous version, they work completely independently of each other instead of upgrading the older version. USB and Firewire are another format that apple has gone to first and is leading the way.
Now after saying that I wouldnt own one anytime in the near future since I am a PC kind of guy but they have my respect for being at the front of a lot of technologies.
That is the only thing that Apple has done right in my opinion-Firewire- bootable and hot-plug/unplug (WinXP still doesn't even have this essential fxn, which really bugs me. :frowning: )
