First off, I'm curious if you've had personal experience with MacMice? And, if so, how was your transaction handled? Or are you just perpetuating the ramblings of a small, select few who have experienced a less than perfect transaction?<br><br>Because I'm located in Canada, I would think I'd be a prime target for the unscrupulous business practices of an American online retailer. One would think the promises of replacement SightClips (which I purchased in July of this year) would be empty. One would also think any of my Canadian friends would have been cheated in some way. Surprise, surprise! Nothing of the sort has occurred!<br><br>Not only has my buying experience with MacMice been favourable, the company's efforts to keep me informed as to shipments and manufacturing progress is a pleasant boon to their apparent growing integrity.<br><br>I'm sure some of the online community's most popular news sites wouldn't bother to discuss MacMice products if the company were such a perceived bad risk.<br><br>Although I can be a miserable, old curmudgeon and continue to display much skepticism to online buying, my choice to deal with MacMice is based on a concerted effort into "reading between the lines" of the outrageous public ravings and responses to them from Jack, himself. My opting to provide his company the benefit of the doubt has not been met with any unpleasantness.<br><br>To suggest I and my friends support illegal activities is preposterous and ignorant!<br><br>alec - OFI
I'm someone who has recently completed a successful transaction with MacMice and was pleasantly surprised at my timely shipment of a SightFlex.<br><br>It seems to me some folks are on a witch hunt. They are looking for anything to nit pick. The guy may have had an unsavoury past but I'm dealing with the present. I'm willing to cut the guy some slack.<br><br>I'm insulted that you would suggest that I support fraud and theft.<br><br>PS: swatcat wants to know if your needle is stuck. All your posts here are related to this one issue. Looks like you make a career of going forum to forum to smear Jack's name.<br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by margadagio on 11/15/03 01:06 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
I just completed an order for the new beautiful looking two button scroll mouse. It looks just like the one I got with my iMac. I was real happy to see it.<br>Then, to my dismay I started reading the stuff in this post, and then did more searching on my own following all the links to My Mac Life site and MacInTouch, etc etc.<br><br>I got a little worried after reading everything.<br>I am still happy I ordered the mouse because it was just what I was looking for.<br><br><br>My Stuff
I doubt that there is anything to worry about. It seems as though he does copy ideas and claims them as his own, however. <br>I paid particular attention to the thread in YourMac Life.<br>On the other hand, I like the idea of a two-button mouse with a scroll wheel that is identical to the original Mac mouse. I wonder if there is already one out there.<br>
i don't know if there are any others out there.<br>I was hesitant to get a two button scroll wheel mouse because none of them looked nice with my FP imac.<br>I love the look of the Pro mouse that came with the iMac, but I really wanted to try a two button scroll wheel mouse.<br>When I saw the article in MacMinute news I went to the site and saw the mouse and had to get it.<br><br><br><br>My Stuff
I agree with you. I love the look and feel of the Pro mouse. I think a two-button with a scroll wheel looking identical to the Pro would be a good seller.<br>Let me know your experience.<br>PS> You hear that, Jack? You better be extra nice to her!<br><br>
Maybe some things are copied. I have no personal experience to think so or to know absolutely for sure.<br>From what I've seen in the business world, making something similar is nothing new. Look at Microsoft for goodness sakes and how about our beloved Apple? Think they don't push the limits? ha!<br><br>If something hasn't got a foolproof patent then it's fair game. If Jack has supposedly "stolen" something that had a legit patent then that person should sue. period.<br><br>I just bought something from him I haven't seen elsewhere. It fulfills a need that is lacking from Apple itself. I've not seen this product elsewhere.<br>I needed it and bought it. <br><br>
I have a multi button scroll mouse and I love it. I'm sure when you get used to your new mouse you'll never want to go back.<br><br>That mouse Jack is selling does look very cool. Much prettier than my Microsoft mouse. <br><br>
