It certainly sounds like a good product. If it does not yet exist, it certainly should!
(Not particularly helpful, sorry.)

Oh god no. Bluetooth mice have a slight delay that make them useless for photoshop. A tablet is for precise movement and the whole bluetooth thing would kill that.

"I find your lack of faith disturbing." Perhaps a later implementation/version of Bluetooth would have better performance.

Agreed. you would not want to use the current tech with painting type programs.

I'm about to toss my current non bluetooth wireless out the window and go back to wired mouse. My friend the same with the apple bluetooth wireless.

Wireless perifs seem like a dream but in reality they are not there for many people.

bluetooth on a phone on the other hand is a must have IMO.

I dont know what mice you have used, but I have no delay in my M$ BT mouse.
I use it for gameing, (Halo) whicih in some ways needs to be more precise/quick/errorless, than for painting or graphing.

I just ask about latency issues in the other mouse thread. this is a little strange as my friend's apple bluetooth is contantly "losing contact' with the mac and he has to mouse the mouse back in range and resync.

maybe the microsoft mice do not suffer from this problem(the bluetooth) because i own the wireless microsoft mouse and it does "take a half second" to respond some times.

the bummer part is that apple does not have a "mouse row" to try all these out and best buy always seems to be a little slow in getting the latest mice. at least where i live.
