One of the features I like the most about my five button Kensington Mouse in a Box Optical Elite is the ability to chord, or press two buttons at once to trigger a different function/key command. Does the Mighty Mouse do this? I'd love to get the Apple bluetooth mouse, and only have to plug the power into my laptop, but chording is important to me.

Officially, it doesn't do chording - if you try to press the first two buttons together, it only counts as a left-click.

Chording on the MM would rock. Apple really dropped the ball.

In WoW you can normally press the first and second mouse buttons simultaneously to run, but on the MM it doesn't work.

I think it is brilliant that both psudo-buttons counts as a left click. I would not use the mouse if it didn't - I hold mice in such a way that I press down on the whole surface of the mouse to click.

(I wouldn't mind it if it was optional of course, as I'd just turn it off.)
What the nerd community most often fail to realize is that all features aren't equal. A well implemented and well integrated feature in a convenient interface is worth way more than the same feature implemented crappy, or accessed through a annoying interface.

Almost any two button mouse with it's own software package can be told to recognize both mouse buttons as a left click.
