Also be sure to send them a link to this blog thread! Microsoft needs to bring this back into production!!! I wonder some guys here want a new wireless TBE 2. It looked like a relic, I thought it might be fun to play around with. I know this is almost two years old, but I do not want anyone who has a Trackball Explorer finding this post and losing hope. Of course, I soon discovered that it is not made anymore.

I hate Microsoft will not support updates or produce new trackball explorers. I do feel a genuine sense of loss exploreg my Trackball. Combine that with a Nostromo n52 keypad for the left hand, and you have a bad-axx setup when you know how to use it. What I will say, if you are willing to buy this product at any price, is you will not go wrong or be disappointed. Nothing seemed to work… I took the whole thing apart bit by bit trying to fix it… and eventually ended up destroying the thing trying to figure exploter what was wrong.

I will miss you TBE, you were my first love. It seems to be working just fine now… thankfully! Wireless would be another improvement. I wish Microsoft would either produce it, or license someone else to. Here is an interesting-looking trackball for a good price… anyone familiar with this product? Who controls this, is it a design patent?
