    BTW, I just found this alternative to PowerMate, called SpaceTraveller:
    http://www.3dconnexion.com/spacetraveler.htm
    Anyway its got blue illumination and appearently it has more then one LED only.
    On the other hand, IMHO it has much nicer look which will probably match our car interiors better then PowerMate.

    EDIT: ehmmm... I just realised it is a bit overpriced - it costs more then 650 Euro (yes, thats correct 650 Euro).

    I have three of the powermates, two silver and one black. They all have blue LEDs in them. I tried getting one of them open, but didn't try real hard. At almost $45 a pop with shipping I didn't want to d*ck it up.

    I have looked online and I can find no evidence of there ever being a Limited Edition Black Powermate w/ red LED. I think I'm going to install the powermate in a recessed hole which would cover up the blue LED.

    LagunaICE, nice find. I like the extra buttons, however I'm not sure there are Mac OS drivers for the SpaceTraveler.

    As far as taking one apart, all you have to do is:

    1. Pull the top knob off & remove the circle of sponge
    2. Using a razor blade, carefully wedge it between the plastic bottom and the metal body. It's only glued on...
    3. On the top, remove the Lg nut.
    4. Push the shaft through the backside

    But you can't push it all the way out cause the wires are short...

    You also cannot pull the wire through the outside hole, the only way is to just cut it and re soldier it when done....the plastic strain releif prevents you from seperating the cord from the housing...

    Hope this helps...this was posted somewhere on here before but its easier to retype it than it will be to search for it....
