The Mighty Mouse

Apple continues to churn out products that complement and increase the over all value of investing in the Apple platform. Today they’ve announced the launch of The Mighty Mouse that offers a new interface to the otherwise standard 2 button, 1 scroll wheel design. For a number of years Microsoft’s Hardware division has definitely provided some competition in the the mouse/ keyboard industry with it’s product set of Intellimouse Explorers and keyboards such as the Optical Desktop with Fingerprint Reader. In my opinion Apple was never regarded as a competitor because it continued to invest in the one button mouse design. However, The Mighty Mouse may prove to be the answer to the much needed Apple designed 2 button mouse that PC users frequently ask for when moving to the Macintosh bandwagon.
