Magic Mouse

 

While Apple excels at creating best-in-category hardware and software,every time the company has unleashed a new mouse, well…let's just saythat their rodentia haven't lived up to the Apple name. And sometimestheir mice have just plain sucked. But now...

Beautiful design, with game-changing Multi-Touch feature

Power swipers and those with large hands could find the mouse difficult to handle

The Magic Mouse is a winner in the features and aesthetics departments, but its low-profile beauty could prove to be a pain for some.

Apple's First Bath Accessory - Magic Mouse Soap Dish

 

Apple's releases new Magic Mouse and inadvertently releases its first bathroom accessory. 

I ordered the new wireless keyboard via Apple's website on October 21. They just updated me today saying that they are backordered and will be delivered by November 17. Anyone having the same problem? I did not anticipate this to happen since they...

It's Magic! The First Apple Mouse That Doesn't Suck

 

Apple mashes together a multitouch trackpad and a regular mouse, and the result is surprisingly useful.

Apple Magic Mouse Review

 

Apple's history with mice looks a lot like GM's history with economy cars. It's kind of sketchy. From the much-bemoaned “hockey puck mouse” of the late 90s to the translucent Apple Pro Mouse without a right click, Steve Jobs and company have never been...

Absolutely gorgeous; reasonably priced; intuitive one-fingered scrolling; top notch build quality

Terribly uncomfortable to hold; almost impossible side-to-side swiping; install directions could be clearer; bloated 100MB drivers; no rechargeable batteries; packing tape left debris

Apple killed the Magic Mouse the second a designer laid pen to paper and sketched it in its current form.

Apple Magic Mouse

 

The world's first gesture-based mouse, Apple's Bluetooth Magic Mouse exemplifies innovation and high design, but its compact profile and lack of buttons aren't for everyone.

First-ever Multi-Touch–capable mouse. Stunning, minimalist design. Configurable. Ambidextrous

Multi-Touch features work with Macs only. Mouse isn't large enough to fill the natural curve of your hand ; Watch our Apple Magic Mouse video review

Apple Magic Mouse

 

Apple's latest pointer, the Magic Mouse, is included with its new iMac desktops , but you can purchase it separately for $69. Just don't confuse it with the Mighty Mouse , because although they're the same price, the differences end there. The Magic...

Sexy design; vertical scrolling works like a physical scroll wheel; pairs easily with Mac computers; ambidextrous.

Awkwardly narrow profile; doesn't work with Windows PCs; laser sensor not as advanced as Darkfield and BlueTrack competition; horizontal swipes don't feel as natural as thumb buttons; can't customize swiping functions; no pinching.

Apple's new wireless Magic Mouse gets a sleek makeover and even has multitouch controls, but it's better as a portable laptop companion rather than a full-size desktop accessory. The swiping gestures add interactivity to Web browsing and media, but the...

Apple Magic Mouse Review

 

The trackball is replaced by a gesture sensing surface which is whats magical about this mouse.

Priced at AED 379 (US$100), the Magic Mouse is a tad bit on the expensive side but there really isn’t anything like it in the market. You’ll very easily get used to its swipes.

Apple Magic Mouse

 

Apple addicts who appreciate design and minimalism, as well as multi-touch functionality, will find the Magic Mouse a must-have. Those used to a chunkier, more traditional pointer, however, will have a hard time adjusting.

Innovative multi-touch technology; dynamic design; easy to connect to Mac computers

Learning curve necessary; doesn't work with Windows PCs; no pinching and pulling to adjust zoom

Knowing the Apple faithful, we suspect that few Mac users wouldn't want a Magic Mouse on their desk. For Apple addicts used to the touch pad on a MacBook Pro and who enjoy its swiping and buttonless functionality, the Magic Mouse will be a natural...
