Why did Microsoft stop manufacturing the Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0? I mean this is probably their best mouse ever made. The Laser 6000 was a complete flop. I truly do not understand some companies’ logic. This is probably the most sought after mouse. If I remember correctly most gamers love this mouse. I know I did and still do. I use one at work every day. The 4.0 was alright, but nothing like the 3.0. I just cannot fathom how the engineers at Microsoft don’t catch wind about the design flaws or problems with their newer mice. And if they do catch flack or hear something through the great vine, why don’t they do something about it? My only guess is that the Laser 6000 is actually selling well lol.
I mean why can’t they just create something similar in style to the IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0, box it and put it on to the market. They would make an insane amount of money. Yes, Bill is already rich as heck but c’mon! Give us what we want! Well most of us… IntelliMouse 3.0 should be brought back to replace the Laser 6000. The Laser 6000 is a complete disaster. The buttons are placed way too far up to be reachable by the average human hand. Put the two buttons right where they used to be, on the same side. Maybe, maybe add a sixth button where your pinky hangs off but put it at a relatively easy to reach place but not so easy to as to accidentally press it.
What would be so hard about placing a damn laser into the IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 molding and calling it a day? Sometimes I truly wonder what the hell those guys do all day long. Too bad they don’t have some type of suggestion site. I’ve tried fruitlessly to suggest things in the newsgroups, no one listens. And don’t even get me started on how the Natural 4000 keys are damn hard to press. Oh boy. This is I believe my third or fourth keyboard and the keys are damn hard. Compared to my Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop Pro 2.0 set from about a year ago, these keys are like typing on a damn brick. Oh woe are the days of soft keys in which it letteth me keepeth my handeths pain free. Damn you Microsoft!
