And the rest is all opinion. Thankfully mice come in a LOT of variety of shapes and functions. The mouse this reviewer loves, someone else will hate. Nothing wrong with that.
Plenty of people love the Mighty Mouse. I like the shape a LOT, the scroll ball second, and the other button functions are fine but--since I play FPS games--I know I can do better. It's not a bad product just because it's not the same as other mice. Get what suits you.
If it's true that BT mice are unsuitable for gaming, then I might be getting a Mighty Mouse after all--once BT version is out. I demand BT for travel. But if that means I still need a gaming mouse at home anyway, then it's OK if I can't game with the Might Mouse.
What should apple do? Simple.
Unbundle the mouse (or allow it to be unbundled BTO, like PowerMac modems can be) from ALL Mac models. Let people pick which Apple mouse they want--or none at all. Then they have infinite choice of whatever shape and button functions they desire.
What does your Mac, PC or PlayStation 3 do all night?
It could be working on cures for cancer and Alzheimer's.

So, while such features as a 360 degree scroll ball are impressive, the mouse itself is strictly mediocre in terms of both performance and features.
Here's hoping Apple does it right the next time.

The reason why it should have been obvious that this is a terrible mouse for gaming is simple: the touch buttons. Other problems aside, you simply can't click fast enough with a button that has no vertical travel.
