Apple Ate My Mouse

I think very few people have ventured into concepts regarding the mouse let alone an Apple Mouse. So naturally when I came across this slim-trim device I was tempted to prod further. Besides looking AWSOME, the Apple Slim Mouse packs in Bluetooth and switches between trackball (400dpi) and laser (1600dpi) with a micro adjustment. Smooth sailing is what you get, and the options of aluminum or plastic finishes. BTW, I wonder why would anyone want to design a trackball mouse in this day and age!

    because trackballs suck ass.. the design is nice, but resembles te old mouse to much, nothing new here..

      Would you think differently about a trackball if you had a disability?
      I’ve used a trackball for over 20 years. Otherwise, computers would be something else that was used only by others.

      Grow up and think of others instead only of yourself.

        That is the problem with 90% of the readers on here. They just blurt out whatever comes into their head first without actually considering other factors.

    A lot of people use trackballs to this day, there’s some good innovations in the design of them actually. They are quicker in a lot of aspects than a regular mouse since there’s less movement involved, which is why programmers seem to enjoy them over a mouse.

    And of course the handicap issue.

    I agree with Nikki, you run a design blog supporting innovation and out-of-the-box thinking, yet you stereotype and pigeonhole yourself all the time with ridiculous comments in your articles. How about trying to think big (sorry Apple, i’ll return your tagline) instead of not thinking.

    Guess what guys, none of you read it. It’s a trackball mouse, not a trackball pointing device. In other words, it’s old-timey and requires just as much arm movement as any mouse but works more poorly. The little trackball on top is for scrolling like the current Apple mice.

    That said, it looks way uncomfortable to use. So, in that respect, the designer has really tapped into the Apple mouse philosophy.
