Apple releases a new Magic Mouse, which takes a step further by imitating the touch-screen experience of an iPhone.
Without any physical buttons, the input device—available for $69—is itself the button, Apple said. Using technology employed on the iPhone and iPod Touch, the top of the Magic Mouse is a sensor that reads touch gestures to scroll, pan, swipe and click on documents and in applications.
The new device is Bluetooth-enabled for wireless use, and Apple said it’s equally friendly to either left or right hands. But it will work only with Macs running Leopard version 10.5.8 or later; Windows users need not apply.
