Hello!

 

I bought a Magic Mouse yesterday.  What I noticed is that the ratio of the distance of curser movement to mouse movement is too low; that is, the curser moves too small a distance for each movement of the mouse, and I end up having to  move the mouse too much, making the built in touch-pad more efficient and comfortable.  I have even set the mouse speed to the highest possible. 

 

Also, as my curser approaches the desired link to be pushed, I have to slow down velocity of the mouse movement to make sure I don't miss my mark, but what happens is that as I slow down, the curser velocity slows down even more, almost exponentially, and I can barely reach my destination.  It's like a calculus equation where you come closer and closer the value, but never actually reach it.  But if I move too fast, I overshoot my destination. 

 

If this problem is not fixable, I will have to return the mouse and buy a third party one. 

 

Thoughts please?  Thanks!

    Well, I already tried two third-party software to see if  it would fix the problem, but it did not.    Thus unfortunately, I will have to return the Magic Mouse.  Actually, I may exchange it for another brand at the Apple Store.  I also bought the Apple battery and recharger set for the Magic Mouse.  I wonder if it can be used on the other wireless mouses; but if not, I will have to return it as well.

    The batteries and charger are not Apple-specific.  However, I use rechargeable's and a 15 minute charger (both from Energizer - new on eBay).  I find the fast charger to be much more efficient.  I also have a drawer full of rechargeable batteries - two or three are not enough.
