"This mouse won't do what you think!"0.5 starson by rmont
Pros: Good size, looks nice
Cons: 1. When starting computer, BT will not automatically connect and 2. Can not program buttons
Summary: As you can read from my CONS there were 2 major difficulties I encountered with my NEW Powerbook running "Tiger" (OS 10.4.2).
1. Every time I turned off my computer and later restarted, I had to go through the "pairing" sequence again.
2. All I wanted to program was: Left button - single click; Right button - double click.
Would not do it! I emailed Kensington and they told me that their "programming package" (whose name I forget) will not run in my PowerBook and the basic Mac programming will not program this mouse.
Anyone want to buy one of these cheap?
P.S. If anyone thinks I missed something that would make this mouse work please let me know - but I did communicate several times with Kensington and they couldn't help. I'd love to be wrong.Updated
Since I wrote this review, I decided to try the mouse again and discovered that when you restart the computer and the mouse does not "hook-up", if you then click the mouse 2-3 times, it WILL start up without "re-pairing".
Interesting that no one pointed this out to me from Kensington.
