You just want me to not be honest with my feelings about it. If you take Apple Keyboards for example: I think they are the best keyboards on the market, in terms of looks, design and for typing. I have not one bad thing to say about them. I even think they are worth the price.
Having to explain right-click to someone with the Magic Mouse, and I had had to a few times, tells you there's a design issue with it. Not to mention tracking is slow and how effective those swipe-guestures are highly dependent on your desks surface. If it's too shiny then the mouse keeps moving, and the action isn't even comfortable when it works correctly. About the only thing I like about the magic mouse is scrolling. Everyone knows Apple don't make the best mice, yet you have trouble with this. And you especially have trouble with me saying it. You say I'm: "definitely negative".
You obviously want me to be positive about something I don't like. That's just not going to happen. I even gave them the benefit of the doubt they would fix the right-click issue, where they would add some sort of intelligent pressure sensitivity mechanism under the shell so when someone legitimately decided to right-click they wouldn't be punished for not lifting their index finger. I hate to break it to you, but that's bad design. However you slice it it's a bad design. And when you have to explain that to someone, like I've had to a few times, it's not just bad design conceptually, but also in practice. I love me iMac, I love my Apple keyboard, and I love my Logitech MX Revolution.
You know what I hate? Those twist-to-open ball-point pens. You know the ones... they're commonly made by premium pen manufacturers like Cross and Waterman. It really seems like I cannot write out a single sentence without the pen starting to close half way or worse. But I won't ridicule
people who enjoy using them because they don't experience that problem.
That's also the first and last time I will post my opinion on that subject. I don't feel the need to troll pen forums to express my opinion.
You see, it's not about being positive
about something you don't like. It's about refraining from being redundantly negative, as if your life depends on winning the argument against someone who has a differing viewpoint. This is exactly what SpotOn was doing.
You don't need to comment about the iPhone antenna issue in every thread about the iPhone, even those threads, like this one, that have nothing to do with the antenna issue. You don't need to comment about how much the Magic Mouse sucks on every thread about the Magic Mouse and in many threads that weren't even about the Magic Mouse to begin with. Yet you do. That's why you're being labeled a troll.
By the way, the twisty ball pens are not for everyone. Neither are Magic Mice. But neither of them are flawed designs. The Mighty Mouse and the puck mouse were flawed designs.
