Apple is known for their innovative technology and for setting many precedents as an industry game-changer.
Unfortunately, the Cupertino, California–based tech company overlooked a very simple design flaw after releasing their wireless multi-touch mouse.
And consumers are not cool with it.
Users are forced to re-charge the mouse by plugging the cable into the underside of the device, rendering the product useless until it's fully charged.

Not all hope is lost. Battery-half-full users still praised Apple by pointing out the device's impressive power mileage.
