  • With the current software it's like a Powerbook trackpad on top of a laser mouse. The only thing it seems to recognise is one or two fingers. You cannot pinch or three or four finger tap/swipe (to be honest 4 would be a feat while holding the device between thumb and little finger. There's no squeeze either. I'm sure these will all be addressed in the 2G Magic mouse, On the positive side, there's no little ball to get gummed up and the scrolling is ballistic so it should provide the best scrolling experience on a mouse so far, just don't expect 'iphone' multitouch or more than two 'buttons'. A missed trick (if the device is sensitive enough) would be to allow pressure to register as a Z axis, effectively giving you a gigantic pen or tablet and making a great artists tool. 3G perhaps?
