Apple just a few weeks ago announced availability of a new mouse – the Magic Mouse. Let’s take a look at this beauty.
It is wireless, has no visible buttons (but is in fact a touch sensitive 2 button mouse), has multi-directional scrolling via a touch surface (with acceleration), and support for multi-touch gestures.
WarMouse today announced the availability of a new mouse – the OpenOfficeMouse. Let’s take a look at this beauty.
It is wired, has 18 buttons, a scroll wheel, and a joystick.
I was going to rant about the open source community and how they are even worse than Microsoft at innovation and usability (who would have thought it was possible?), but I think the OpenOfficeMouse does that without me saying anything more. But this monstrosity does remind me of a great cartoon – I recycle this a lot at the office when feature requests start to make the usability of our applications questionable.
Oh, and I apologise for the appalling title of this article. It is late.
