I am not the "reviewing"-kind, when it comes to electronics and computers. I had a great share of some great electronics, from self-made helmet-cams up to iPod Hifi or Macintosh Cube (Yeah, the worst Apple products of all times, but hey).
I switched to Windows recently, and that with zero Windows user experience. I must admit, I am enjoying my windows days. It might still be a copy of MacOS, but not a sucky one as it had been. It's good. And fast.
And no, I am a fan boy of neither.
As mentioned, I am enjoying the switch. I still use my Max to create stuff (it's the environment), but I am loving my HP Spectre Laptop. And as I am going through this unusual change, I though my experiences can help others, who might also think, that Apple might have gone too far.
After trying to utilize my beloved Apple Magic Mouse (Yes, I love that mouse,one word: double tab on safari for zooming) and I hoped to have the sam experience on windows. I downloaded Magic Mouse Utilities and tried the mouse out. It's not the same experience and I ditched the Magic Mouse on my Windows laptop.
After a short, but thorough consideration, I went for the Triathlon Mouse from Logitech. I was going to buy the Microsoft Sculpt Mouse (because of the size,form and the side-scrolling feature, and the price), they didn't have those. So, I checked Logitech - I like the brand, had a few gadgets and they all worked fine - I dream of buying the MX one day, I had it once and it's the best mouse on the desktop.
Well, Logitech's good stuff is not cheap. But they're the Lamborghini of mice. I wasn't going to spend a fortune (€ 90,- for a mouse is a killer), and even € 40,- seemed "too much" for a mouse. And then I tried the Triathlon out and scrolled the wheel. It got me.
First: There are two modes to it: one free-wheeling with inertia, the other the ticking-wheel which has friction. The first one is a browsing.
