Apple-Magic-Mouse-Now Shipping

The Apple Magic Mouse has been long ready and the people who were not annoyed by its Bluetooth predecessor-Mighty Mouse-were waiting for its shipping confirmation. For that set of users specifically and the rest, the word is out that Cupertino’s latest rodent-Magic-is now being shipped on order from the Apple Store. Apple dubs it the world’s first multi-touch mouse and it will be shipped with every new iMac as well.

We are just hoping that this mouse knows where the right and the left clicks fall and this does not jam the hands like the mighty mouse. Apple is pretty confident about this product which aims to take the gesture driven interaction to another level.

The Magic Mouse borrows the touch sensitive track-pad from the Macbook, eliminating the previously found (problematic) trackball. To scroll up and down or left and right through pages, a user will have to merely run the fingers just as you do on a touch-sensitive track-pad, making things mighty easier.

Snow Leopard users can benefit more by downloading the software updates to fully use the multi-touch and gestural features. The Magic Mouse will cost $69 and the shipping charges will be extra.
