Magic Mouse is slow or scratches the desk/is rough

I’ve seen many threads and posts on various websites and forums about people complaining that the Magic Mouse is slow or feels rough on their wooden desk surface. Although the only solution to the latter is to either make sure the surface of your desk is clean or get a mousemat (I recommend the Steelseries QcK+ gaming mouse cloth mat – I use it and it’s great for any mouse being used, including the Apple Magic Mouse), the problem regarding the tracking speed (without sounding arrogant…) is the way the user is using the mouse.

Regarding the perceived tracking speed, if you are wondering whether it’s an unresolved software issue or perhaps a hardware issue with your mouse or your Mac, it isn’t. It is supposed to feel slow if you move your mouse slowly (deceleration) and increases speed quickly as you move the mouse faster (acceleration). The benefits of this are that you can do fast tracking while having the precision for graphics work or selecting small icons without mis-hitting them. The thing that I guess Apple assumes everyone will do is moving the entirely mouse instead of what many people would do, which is rest their wrist on their desk while moving the mouse.

Like many high-end mice which allow you to rest your entire hand on the mouse meaning you need to move the entire mouse itself to move the pointer on the screen – while you cannot comfortably hold the entire Magic Mouse because of its low-profile design – the tracking algorithm in OS X works differently to Windows.

The tracking algorithm in OS X used to drive me insane because of the deeper acceleration and deceleration that occurs when using mice.

A few pointers…

  • If you want to take advantage of more multitouch gestures (and to increase the tracking speed beyond what is possible out of the box), there’s a third party app called MagicPrefs – it’s pretty cool. It shows the true potential of the Magic Mouse with the top shell of the mouse being multitouch-capable.
  • To right-click on the mouse, you need to first enable “secondary click”, as it’s called, within System Preferences. You can then right-click by clicking on the right-side of the mouse. However, it will interpret two fingers being on the top surface as a left-click, so make sure you lift your index finger off the left part first. Some people seem to make this mistake depending on whether they naturally lift their index finger when right-clicking.
  • Performing gestures on the mouse may not work when you are wearing gloves, because the mouse has a capacitive touch sensor, and when a human finger comes into contact with the top shell of the mouse that can detect touch input – because the human body is also an electrical conductor – there is a change in the electrostatic field; and from there, the location of the touch is determined. In the case of the mouse, this is then sent over to the computer to execute the relevant gesture. As a result, don’t be surprised if gestures on your mouse do not work if you wear thick gloves.
  • If you are really not happy with your mouse, just send it back to Apple within 14 days (or whatever the period you are entitled to send the product back is in your jurisdiction).

Big companies tactics to avoid having to pay higher amount of tax

While it is immoral for some companies to structure themselves in such a way to avoid having to pay more tax in the UK, all the companies that structure themselves in a way preventing themselves paying more tax than otherwise necessary are in full compliance to UK law. The answer to the “problem” is this: if our government have such a big problem with it, they need to adopt to the changing environment and implement measures that provide little financial benefit for companies to try and reduce their tax bill. But granted, it sounds like a very complex problem that doesn’t seem as easy as some would think for the government to try and solve.

I hope there are at least some areas that our government can solve in order to get companies trading in this country to pay the amount of tax they should really be paying, instead of figuring out how to structure their operations in a way to reduce the amount of tax they have to pay. But it’s not just a problem here in the UK, countries like the US suffer the same problem because some multinational companies store a large portion of their profits in overseas jurisdictions with many of which having more favourable tax rates.
