    Mouse in German. It's more fun to say.

    No need for tape. Just buy a cheap one from fleabay. Mine works when it feels like and has now started to double click faster than i can. REALLY annoying when you close one tab and IT closes the rest at the same time!

    if you want to be really evil, take the cover off, and just put a bit of tape over the light sensor that's used to detect the movement :) Noone will ever notice
