Everybody loves a good magic show, as long as the magic works. Last week, Apple introduced its Magic Mouse, which it bills as "the world’s first Multi-Touch mouse." With its Bluetooth connectivity, it now enables many of the multi-touch gestures that users of the iPhone, iPod Touch, and newer MacBooks have come to love.
However, some initial reviews have been less than stellar, which raises the question of whether the Magic Mouse is more style than substance. While CNET raved about its sleek appearance, it was very critical of the Magic Mouse’s narrow profile that "sits too low for comfort", "awkward and unnatural" feel when sliding our middle and index fingers across the flat surface, and inability to reassign the gestures to suit your personal preferences.
The image below shows the many multi-touch gestures the Mighty Mouse offers. I haven’t had an opportunity to try one out myself, but I welcome your comments of your experiences.
