Apple announced earlier today some new products for the holiday season, which we find quite interesting. Among the new products is a new wireless computer mouse, which is the world’s first mouse to use Apple’s Multi-Touch technology, which we all knows from iPhone, iPod Touch and Mac notebook trackpad. The new mouse is dubbed“Magic Mouse” which is a new name for Apple mouse devices. Magic Mouse’s predecessor, MightyMouse, which had some problems with its wheel , is pulled out of the assortment.
Magic Mouse features a seamless touch-sensitive enclosure that allows it to be a single or multi-button mouse with advanced gesture support. Using intuitive gestures, users can easily scroll through long documents, pan across large images or swipe to move forward or backward through a collection of web pages or photos. Magic Mouse works for left or right handed users and multi-button or gesture commands can be easily configured from within System Preferences.
Magic Mouse will come standard with the new iMac, and will be available at the end of October with a suggested retail price of $69 (US) and it requires Mac OS X Leopard version 10.5.8 or later.
