Apple launches wireless mighty mouse

As of today, Apple is selling a wireless, Bluetooth version of its popular Mighty Mouse. Apple Bluetooth Mighty MouseI have a wired Mighty Mouse at home and like it very much, especially its multi-way scroll wheel and button-less design.

The previous wireless Apple mouse sufferred from the following faults:
  1. From power on it took upwards of ten seconds before the Bluetooth had shaken hands with its host computer. It's not clear if the new model makes improvements in this area.
  2. It was too heavy with normal Alkaline batteries. Apple cunningly supplied exremely light but expensive Lithium batteries with the mouse. The new mouse, however, requires only one battery to operate, so its weight should be less
