magic_mouse.gifAs we've mentioned our excitement here at GeniusDV the last few days regarding the new Apple iMacs, I wanted to take a closer look at the new Magic Mouse that is included with every new iMac.  The things this new mouse can do is amazing.  Although I've not yet had the chance to try it out, I'm looking forward to the day when I can.  As with any other time you're switching over to a new mouse, it takes some time getting used to.  Just like when I started using the Mighty Mouse; I hated it at first, but after working with it over time, I'd have a hard time reverting back.

Magic Mouse uses the same multi-touch technology as you would have on your iPhone or MacBook Pro, using finger gestures.  There are no visible buttons, no scroll wheel, just a sleek and smooth design.  The multi-touch area covers the whole top surface of the mouse and the mouse itself is the button.  You can scroll in any direction, and swipe through photos just as you would on your iPhone.  It's so intuitive, it knows just what you want it to do, and it won't confuse a scroll with a swipe.  You can also change these features in the System Preferences pane, to specify one button clicking or 2, or to disable swiping or scrolling.

magic_mouse2.gifThe new Apple Magic Mouse connects to your Mac wirelessly via Bluetooth; so before running out and purchasing one, be sure your Mac is Bluetooth enabled.  At least you won't have any of those tiny USB adapters to worry about losing like with other wireless mice.  Like I said before, all of the new iMacs come with the new Apple Magic Mouse, not to mention a wireless keyboard as well; but you can buy it separately, currently retailing just under $70.  Magic Mouse brings a whole new feel to the way you get around on your desktop!
