magic mouse

So, the Magic Mouse arrives with more of a whimper than a bang. It's a solid performer and definite improvement over all of Apple's previous mice, it's just that it feels like there's a lot more Apple could have done with this technology.

We love Apple's desire to simplify everything down to the bare minimum, because with computers that means no horrible logos, unnecessary buttons on keyboards and an elegant operating system. However, with mice, less is sometimes just that - less.

Maybe Steve Jobs and co are holding out to add more features via a future software update, in a similar way to the way that they periodically update the iPhone with new features. Let's hope so.
