Not true. Most people never replace the mouse they got with their computer unless it breaksdown.
Most reviews on Apple's mouses (yes that is correct) are neutral. Main complaint for years was lack of 'multi' button. However, I still walk into classes and business and see a lot of single clicking and folks typing like crazy then picking up their mouse to print.
As for 'remembered'? You just have to look at all these blogs. Seems that nobody has ever forgotten.
I am glad Apple spends more on research and innovation then on a $50 mouse. I personally have 4 on my desk right now. Only use one. It has been a favorite for a couple of years now. It is a Logitech MX. Great a tracking (Darkfield Laser Tracing) on virtually any surface, even glass. Got rid of the mouse pad. It fits my hand perfectly. But my wife hates it because she finds it too big for her hands. My son, well, it is not a 'gamer' for him.
In addition, I have a couple of 'traveling' mouse on standby. A Griffin Power Mate for editing video/audio (http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/powermate
One of my colleagues in the computer lab won't buy a wireless for the life of him. Needs to have it tethered, otherwise, he would never find it.
Based on the comments coming out, there is no consensus on the 'perfect' mouse. Even the 'experts' can't agree.
There is no mouse, glove, shoe, hat, toilet seat, etc., that fits all. Otherwise, we would all be a-holes.
But we have a lot of choices. Some make money. But most die on the vine.
P.S., If you ask any salesperson in larger computer shops, invariably the one item that takes the most time for a customer to select and buy is a mouse. And the more that they display, the longer it takes to make the decision. Unfortunately, as Consumer's Report has recommended, there are few places that will allow you to try out a mouse for a couple of weeks.http://www.3dconnexion.com/spp/index.phphttp://www.3dconnexion.com/http://www.ergoware.com/blog/coolest...e-market-todayhttp://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/mi.../3443&cl=us,enhttp://www.fabstuff.net/products/664
