Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Looking to buy a new mouse. Wireless or Bluetooth?
I just got a brand new Macbook and am looking to match the purchase with a new mouse. I can't choose from wireless or bluetooth, though, much less which specific model to buy.
Bluetooth seems the most appealing because it frees up one more USB port on my Macbook, which doesn't have many to spare. I've read about dropped connections, however, and that they're more of a problem when there are wi-fi signals around. There are a ton of wireless signals in and near my apartment and I use wireless internet myself, so this seems like a deal breaker.
Wireless with a dongle would seem a good choice in lieu of Bluetooth, then, but only if I'm not going to be losing the signal very frequently. Otherwise I might as well just go wired again, or wait until Bluetooth mice improve.
Right now I'm looking at the Kensington Ci75m chiefly because I like the look of it and it offers a wire in case I find myself without batteries. The Kensington Si670m is what I'm looking at in the Bluetooth area, but I'm not particularly partial to it.
