Mighty Mouse to the Rescue!

One downside that people always find when they purchase a Mac is that the included Apple mice are always one button. Most users end up upgrading to a two button mouse sometime in their Mac life. Thanks to Apple this is no longer necessary.

Apple has finally revealed a powerful "mighty" mouse with every feature imaginable in your input device. The mouse still features a one button design using sensitive touch sensors to determine click input. The Mighty Mouse's design not only is slick, but is practical.

This $50 mouse not only features two buttons, but a scroll wheel, roll button, and side buttons. All of these are touch sensitive and keep your mouse free of "button clutter." All of the features of the mighty mouse are customizable for OS X Tiger users. Another great feature of this new mouse is the ability to program an action for each of your fingertips.

Apple's Mighty Mouse fits its name with a classic Apple design and all the features of a powerful PC mouse. For more information visit Apple's website (external link).

  • Looks a bit like my touchpad on my laptop to me (the way you'd scroll left and right anyway).

    I couldn't care less wether you see buttons or not, as long as they're easy to press while hardly using any power, yet resisting just enough not to be pressed by just touching them.

    I must say it looks interesting though. smile

  • I'm planning on getting one as it is looks to integrate very well into features such as Dashboard, a true blessing.

    Recently Apple released new iBooks which featured an updated trackpad with scrolling features and such, which is seen on some of the higher PC-laptop models.

    I'm waiting to hear some mac-addict response to this new mouse when I listen to some podcast today. big grin

  • That does look pretty cool though. I didn't know Mac mice usually only have 1 button. Cool razz
