May the Fourth be with you! That's what you'll be saying in two days, so we've got a heaping helping of Star Wars apps to slake your thirst to revisit George Lucas' realms. And if you don't care for a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away gaming, then we've got quite a few other options for you. So let's dive in.
We all use our Macs for so much of the day, and while the best way to prevent repetitive-stress pain and injuries is to simply stand up and do something else, we’ll take any advantage we can get. So we asked this trio of experts to steer us toward the most ergonomic pointing device.
Tacking “Magic” onto the name of this new external trackpad is grandiose in that typical Apple way, but we have a feeling that this nifty device actually is performing one genuine feat of magic: peering into the future. At least a little, anyway. Between the proliferation of touch-based iOS devices and Apple’s patents for touchscreen iMacs surfacing recently on the web, it’s reasonable to speculate that Mac OS is going to want you to reach out and touch it someday soon. If that’s even a little true, we can see why Apple might hope that the Magic Trackpad will help us get a little more accustomed to “touching” iMacs, minis, and Mac Pros--not just MacBooks.
If you thought a trendy new Apple product like the Magic Trackpad would escape the attention of those disassemblers at iFixIt, you’re sadly mistaken. Barely a couple days in the retail world, and already they’ve taken one apart and have the pictures to prove it.
Remember the recent leaks showing some kind of trackpad device that Apple appeared ready to release? It’s real and it’s here, and it’s the Magic Trackpad. Sadly, Bigfoot remains as elusive as ever, but we can’t have everything, can we?
