    I am surprised no one has got this working yet -- I love the idea of adding the ball bearing definitely appeals to me.

    Good luck sorting this out and I will check back shortly =)

    I actually got a quote for 4.5mm stainless steel balls with a rough finish. They were $200 for qty 100. I thought about getting them, trying it, and selling them. Then I started thinking... wouldn't a conductive steel ball be dangerous to the health of my device?

    I gave up the plan, but I would be happy to share the contact i made with the supplier with someone who is serious about it, as long as they send me one or two balls. (mind out of gutter, please).

    SS does not attract magnets. Like if u have a stainless fridge, you can't put up anything on it that's magnetic. So I don't see how these balls would hurt. As far as being confuctive..... Not sure if this would pose a risk.
    I also doubt material expansion & contraction would be an issue either. You just may have stumbled upon something pretty cool szumlanski. And the price is very reasonable too IMO

    I am not worried about the magnets. I am worried that if the ball somehow comes into contact with the innards of the device that it might short circuit something. I am not too familiar with the anatomy, not having taken one apart yet.

    Again, if someone else want to take the reins, I'll email them my source.

    Wanna bet? (I have been following this Pied Piper saga with great interest.)

    My guess? "Icarus" has gone back to his side of the fence (and back to the Valley of The 3G iPhone Worshippers) to give a comprehensive report on how easily we "corporate" CrackBerry types can be infiltrated and whipped to a level of fever-pitch excitement --- with the mere promise of a "cool" custom track ball! LOL!

    I would buy several - not to use, but just to continue this "experiment". Icarus - come back!!!!
