I just got rid of my Mighty Mouse and bought Apple’s new Magic Mouse. I like it, but I didn’t realize that it only has two buttons. The old Mighty Mouse had four buttons that I could configure to trigger Dashboard and Exposé and Spaces.
It doesn't take long to learn iPhone and iPod touch classics like double tap for paste and pinch to zoom, so it only seems fitting that the bigger screen of the iPad might allow for a few more gestures.
Maybe it was just our experience, but when FedEx showed up with our Apple Magic Mouse (ordered right after it was announced), the magic seemed to leave the room as quickly as it arrived. But now you can bring out the real sorcery in your Magic Mouse, courtesy of MagicPrefs.
While Apple excels at creating best-in-category hardware and software,
every time the company has unleashed a new mouse, well…let’s just say
that their rodentia haven’t lived up to the Apple name. And sometimes
their mice have just plain sucked. But now with the Magic Mouse, which
brings Multi-Touch technology to the desktop, Apple has created an
input device a bit more worthy of its pedigree.
Apple’s swanky new Magic Mouse was the talk of the tech world when it was introduced last month, but when it started arriving in users’ hands, the dialogue turned more to what it couldn’t do. But thanks to some hackers and shareware authors, your mouse is about to acquire a lot more in the way of magical skills.
The new Apple Magic Mouse might be magical in some regards, but many
owners are bummed because the mouse can’t do some of the cool
Multi-Touch functions that the iPhone can. There's now a remedy for that.
