i was just using a ball mouse on some chick's computer last week. Damn it sucked. It was so dirty inside so it didnt track at all. I cleaned it out and it actually worked 10X better. IDK how she was using it.

I always wanted a trackball. They seem pretty cool, but I've never used one actually hooked up to a PC. Just the ones they had siting out at Office Depot and stuff. Regular ball mice were a pain. I'm glad they "neutered" them.

Now I'm rocking a corded laser mouse and yay for that.

Yeah I still use the ball mice at work, the council are too stingy to payout for even optical let alone laser ones but tbh as long as you keep them clean they are fine, for day to day office PC work.
