Whoops, I read it as trackpad, not mouse.

The trackpad (including macbooks) can act loopy, especially with moisture
involved.  Typically, it selects lines of text . . .

I'd never heard of the distance problem before, though.

I have both mouse and trackpad.  I don't think I reach for the mouse more
than once a month--and that is usually for checking the battery on the
trackpad when it cuts out.

How come apple can make a quad-core i7 laptop with a 15" retina screen that
lasts 7-9 hours, yet can't make wireless keyboards or mice that last more
than two weeks on good alkaline batteries???
