You shouldn't have to do it, at all, end of story. When Steve demoed Apple's pro mouse way back when, he was brash to point out that because there was no ball ("it's optical") it couldn't get stuck, then Apple went and added a ball again, but this time they added a tiny one, and to the greasy side of the mouse!! Huh? The Mighty mouse is unique, yes, it's cute, yes, but it's not practical, reliable, useable, ergonomic, comfortable or clever. For flip sake, you can't even right click when your finger is resting on the left side of the mouse, God knows what they were thinking. From where I'm sitting Apple can't do mouse. They either need to listen to all the stick they have been getting from their users about the Mighty Mouse, or they need to make that touchscreen keyboard I've been waiting for, it could be so cool, and so productive.. if it was done right. For the time being I'd recommend the Logitech MX Revolution.
