Today i will post something about that something that we use every day. I present you the “Magic Mouse”.
Apple’s Magic Mouse: Ergonomics
At first glance, the Magic Mouse’s shape and size seem odd for a mouse. Most mice are bulbous, to conform to the shape of the user’s palm. The Magic Mouse instead has a surface that defines a gentle arc, and its height at mid-point is barely more than half an inch, which ensures that resting a palm on the Magic Mouse is a feat to be performed only by children or adults with very small hands.
The more natural way to use the Magic Mouse is to grip its sides between your thumb and pinkie, rest your index and middle fingers against the top edge of the mouse, and the base of your palm against the bottom edge. In doing so, your hand rests above the mouse without your palm ever touching the Multi-Touch surface. This mouse grip is actually pretty automatic, and leaves the index and middle finger ready to perform clicks and most gestures without the need to reposition your hand.
Apple’s Magic Mouse: Two-Finger Gestures
Apple’s Magic Mouse: Conclusion
The Mouse preference pane offers the option to pair the Magic Mouse with your Mac.
The Magic Mouse is one of the better mice Apple has ever made, but it does have some flaws, which is to be expected for the first generation of a new product. For me, the difficulty of performing the two-finger swipe was a letdown. It’s a problem that Apple could easily resolve by adding some basic gesture customization capabilities to the Magic Mouse. If I could reassign the side-to-side scroll, which I’ve never used in any mouse, to the forward and back functions, which I use constantly, I would be a happy camper. Or, if I could create a vertical two-finger swipe, which my less-than-nimble fingers can perform with ease, then the Magic Mouse would be an ideal mouse for me.
Thanks and see you soon
