I just got the M570 trackball with the unifying receiver. Will this receiver work with the Cordless Trackman Wheel? I would like to leave my new trackball at work and use my old trackball at home.

(double posted in case anyone misses the other thread on this important topic...)
have repeatedly asked them about a unifying receiver edition of the M570; no reply. I've been limited to the touchpad since the cordless optical trackman's clunky 'hockey puck' receiver broke two of my USB ports.
I finally caved in & bought the M570, JUST for the unifying receiver. My thumb hates it & wants to marry the unifying receiver to my trackman. Has anyone found a way to do that?
I submitted surveys to Logitech on both devices asking for the same, or better still, to copy the Kensington Turboball 64227 with the Unifying receiver & an Optical ball.
Perhaps if we bombard them with this very sensible request, we'll get lucky.
Meanwhile, if anyone finds the answer, do post. =)
(the surface material of the trackman is better too!)>

Just bought mine. The M-570 was in stores. Hated it. Who's brilliant idea was it to create a tiny, thumb-controlled trackball. Saw the trackman, just got it in. What the hell is this reciever? How is this wireless? No bluetooth? No little reciever like the 570. This **bleep**. I'll play with it for a little bit to see if I can get used to it, but signs are pointing to me returning both and going back to my 15 year old Kensington Expert Mouse.
