Magic Mouse

Best mouse for Mac: Apple, Razer, Microsoft, Logitech, and more

Tired of your MacBook's trackpad? Maybe it's time for a mouse. Here's a roundup of my favorites

I use a Retina MacBook Pro. Most of the time I'm content to use the trackpad, when I'm taking it out and about especially. But when I'm at my desk I like to tether the laptop to a big screen and put it on a stand, so I can't use the trackpad comfortably. That's when it comes in handy to have a mouse to use instead. Of course, if you have a Mac mini, iMac, or Mac Pro, and Magic Trackpads aren't your thing, you'll need a mouse all the time.

Jailbroken iPad gets Apple Magic Mouse support

Redmond Pie decided to try out BTstack Mouse on a Jailbroken iPad and the results were promising:

Not only did it worked with Apple Magic Mouse, but also with almost all the other Bluetooth enabled mice I had. For those of you who don’t know, BTstack Mouse is a free utility which was first released earlier this year for jailbroken iPhones and iPod touch.

First a Nintendo Wiimote, then an external HDD, now BT mouse. Is there anything Jailbreak can't do?

Check out Ally's Spirit Jailbreak guide, and TiPb's Jailbreak forum for more, and the link below for step-by-step BTstack for iPad instructions.

Do You Want the 4th Gen iPhone Case to be Multitouch like Magic Mouse?

From the now we've heard everything department, an analyst is "predicting" that the 4th generation iPhone's plastic casing will be multitouch enabled, just like Apple's new Magic Mouse.

Not "predicted" of course is how it would work, and how it would filter out things like holding the iPhone for normal use vs. deliberately initiating a multitouch gesture on the back of the case.

Again, with Apple anything is possible, but is this desirable? Can you see Apple doing it?

Review: Apple Brings iPhone-style Multi-Touch to Magic Mouse

Apple's Magic Mouse, introduced via simple press release on October 20, is the latest point-and-click peripheral for the Mac, and the latest showcase for Apple's multi-touch technology, first introduced in the iPhone and later the iPod touch. While the iPhone is still the premiere multi-touch experience in consumer electronics, however, Apple's modern history of mice has been... poor to mediocre. The hockey puck that shipped with the original iMac was goofy, the one-button Mighty Mouse hard to second-click with and prone to gunked up scroll balls.

Does the Magic Mouse work an iPhone-level spell, or is it just more of the middling? TiPb takes a look after the break!

Apple Ships Magic Mouse Software Update -- But Still No Magic Mouse

Apple has made Wireless Mouse Software Update 1.0 available for both OS X 10.5 Leopard and OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard users eager to add the new multi-touch Magic Mouse to their existing system -- when they become available. That's right, outside of buying one of the brand new iMacs Apple released last week (which include the mouse and the update), you won't find hide nor hair of the new Magic Mouse either at an Apple Retail Store or the Apple Online Store. They're still pending.
