No Bluetooth support in the Mac version?[edit]

Microsoft has released a version for both Mac OS X and Windows, the only difference being that Mac OS X version does not have Bluetooth support . Microsoft Bluetooth mice are still useable in Mac OS X with the generic mouse drivers. -Anonymous user
Don't these two sentences seem a little contradictory? D. F. Schmidt 11:13, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
Perhaps it means it does not have bluetooth funtionality on OSX with the IntelliPoint driver? That doesn't make much sense to me though.... RN 11:16, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
On second thought, I'm not sure if I'm restating you because I'm not sure what you just said. lol. But anyways, maybe the generic Mac OS X driver allows bluetooth but if you're wanting to use the IntelliPoint driver it won't. If that's true, then it's not contradictory, but poorly worded. D. F.

"mapping of the scroll wheel"?[edit]

The article says "the program doesn't let the users edit the mapping of the scroll wheel". What does it even mean? -Lwc4life 10:13, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Why is Microsoft Mouse redirected here?[edit]

MS Mouse has a long history separate from Intellipoint (not covered here), and as a brand name MS Mouse seems to be enduring. --Edwin Herdman 19:16, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
Perhaps a disambiguation page for Microsoft mouse is now appropriate, since a Microsoft mouse (noun) is similar to "Microsoft Mouse" for Mac, which is a phrase that appears in Microsoft's ReadMe (Microsoft-Mouse_d305.pdf for the Optical mouse's IntelliPoint 8.2 (v.305) for Mac 10.4.x-10.7.x 32 & 64-bit), and MS uses the phrase as the title to their custom preferences in Mac OS X's System Preferences. MacUpdate also uses the phrase "Microsoft Mouse" (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/29220/microsoft-mouse) including, "(was IntelliPoint)" (which, after research, remains a synonym.) 97.83.103.55 (talk) 03:25, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Trackball Explorer[edit]

I have an old Microsoft Trackball Explorer, which I just love. I want to find another one. Where are they sold? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.190.204.90 (talk) 17:19, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Censorship of the "must call home" feature[edit]

v6.2 has added the infamous feature of forcing the users to "call home" to Microsoft without any control over it. Someone made sure to censor the way to bypass it from the article. -Lwc4life (talk) 22:39, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Current Issues[edit]

Some users of Steinberg's Cubase music production software have reported intermittent flickering when using recent Intellipoint software (v5.5 through v6.2). While XP users can revert back to older Intellipoint drivers, Vista 32 users' workaround is to shutdown ipoint.exe or uninstall Intellipoint and use the generic driver. Earlier drivers (i.e. pre 6.1) cannot be installed on Vista 32. The problem is discussed here: http://forum.cubase.net/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=84174&highlight=intellipoint. Users report the flickering issue on many other applications, including Photoshop (Google for "ipoint flickering"). This is rumoured to be a side-effect of ipoint.exe requiring regular screenshots of open windows. Non Vista users can avoid this problem by installing a pre 5.5 version of the intellipoint mouse software. Microsoft has hitherto not accepted this as a bug, claiming video drivers to be the root cause. However, many users reported updating the video drivers did not help. The flickering issue seems to occur on almost all graphics card manufacturers. There is anecdotal testimony that this issue has been resolved with release 6.3 of Intellipoint.
