The World’s First Multi-Touch Mouse
Last week Apple unveiled the world’s first multi-touch mouse, the Magic Mouse. Apple’s Mighty Mouse’s predecessor is now a wireless, sexy-looking piece of gadget.
What Apple basically did was turn the glass touchpad surface of their Macbook Pro into a wireless, mouse-shaped device. No more mechanical buttons and now you can do all those finger gestures that you can do on the touchpad with the Magic Mouse.
You can scroll through long documents as if the magic mouse has a scroll wheel, pan across large images or swipe to move forward or backward through web pages and photos.
Magic Mouse uses Bluetooth as its wireless connection to your Mac from up to 10 meters away. It is powered by two AA batteries that Apple claims would last you about 4 months.
At least a Mac OS X Leopard (10.5.8 or later) is required for the Magic Mouse.
It is now already available with the new iMac but is expected to be sold separately next week for Php3,490.
