Apple launches wireless Mighty Mouse

By Derek Sooman on July 25, 2006, 2:17 PM
Apple has launched a Bluetooth-enabled wireless mouse - the Mighty Mouse - which the company claims is 20 times more sensitive than a standard optical mouse. The device comes configured as a single-button mouse (Mac style), but can also be configured with additional buttons if the user so desires - programmable touch sensors can be set as primary or secondary buttons. There is also the option of a scroll ball that lets users scroll in any direction.

"The wireless Mighty Mouse features a single seamless enclosure with programmable touch sensors that act as primary or secondary buttons. With a simple click on the upper right or left side of the mouse, users can instantly access features such as contextual menus found in Mac OS X and other applications. The wireless Mighty Mouse’' two other buttons are activated by pressing its Scroll Ball and squeezing its sides, and can be easily programmed to give users one-click access to Mac OS X 'Tiger' features such as Spotlight, Dashboard and Exposé, or to launch any application such as Safari or iChat," claims a press release from Apple.
The Mighty Mouse also features an advanced power management system, which means that low power mode is engaged when the device is not in use. The mouse works with one or two AA batteries.

Do they really claim they invented everything or what?Works on AA batteries tho.

But it can work with only one AA battery also! (What a lot of cheap Logitech CAN'T do)I wouldn't say that AA batteries are really convenient, I'm always stuck trying to find some that aren't dead in my drawers... (You know, when the remote control's dead...)
