The Mouse Reinvented, By Apple

October 20, 2009


The most interesting of today's Apple line update news is probably the introduction of the "Magic Mouse". The new mouse, which is included with every new iMac or can be purchased on its own for $69, will allow desktop Mac users to finally enjoy multitouch. Apple's idea was basically to put a touchpad on a mouse, add bluetooth to it and you're set.

Apple, very proud of itself, describes it the following way:

with its low-profile design and seamless top shell — is so sleek and dramatically different, it brings a whole new feel to the way you get around on your Mac. You can’t help but marvel at its smooth, buttonless appearance. Then you touch it and instantly appreciate how good it feels in your hand.

Yes, they are talking about a computer mouse, don't get mistaken...

The entire mouse is clickable and can simulate right and left click. The main concern for the ones who had the honor of testing it is that the multitouch gestures differ from the ones you might have got used to on your laptop.



So what do you think? Did Apple just reinvent the mouse?
