I'm a total Apple addict, as you might tell.

Mighty Mouse Not So Mighty

OK, maybe it was my fault. I broke the seal on my Mighty Mouse a couple of weeks ago so I could clean out the scroll ball. My mouse had stopped scrolling down, and I read a post online that illustrated how “gunked up” the scroll ball can get. Disassembly is easy, but once taken apart, the only way to get it back together is by applying a little super glue along the seams. The minor surgery went off without a hitch and my scroll ball was restored to a factory shine. Good as new.

Today my favorite mouse in the whole world had a run-in with my 3 year old. Needless to say, the mouse lost. It hit the floor and smashed into no less that 7 pieces. The ribbon cable that attached the top assembly to the inner circuit board was torn in half. Just think, I bought it on July 25th 2006, the day after it was first released. It looks like I’ll be buying a new Mighty Mouse just in time for its 1 year anniversary.

The carnage:
