Apple announced its new “Magic Mouse” today, a multitouch wireless mouse that uses “intuitive gestures” for scrolling and surfing, in addition to traditional clicking action.
I’ve been burned before on Mac mice before – you haunt me, hockey puck! – and $69 isn’t exactly pizza money. I’m weirdly attached to the mechanical clicks the scrollwheel on my current mouse makes (you can feel it working!), and mouse-motion is such muscle memory I feel like changing things up would be like suddenly wearing my watch on the other wrist: Sure, I’d get used to it eventually, but it would always be a little bit off. Perhaps this is why I’m still such a keyboard commands person….
Do you believe in magic (mouse), PopWatchers?
