Best mouse for Mac

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.

Despite not being at Macworld|iWorld 2014, Microsoft made its presence felt

Apple hasn't participated in CES for years, but its presence looms large over the show almost every year. Sometimes Apple's influence is overt, like the vast numbers of iPhone case makers on display. Other times it's more indirect, like the number of wearables makers at this year's show, all wanting to claim their piece of the market before Apple gets there. Similarly, Microsoft no longer exhibits at Macworld|iWorld, but made its presence felt this year in a very big way thanks to Office for iPad.

And according to PCWorld, Office for iPad will get this and more in future updates.

This is standard practice for the App Store and means that Microsoft will indeed be surrendering a cut of all Office 365 subscriptions it sells that way. So, there's every reason for Apple to be doubly excited.
