Microsoft Touch Mouse for Windows 7

on August 23, 2011 8:19 am

This new Touch Mouse from Microsoft is designed to let Windows 7 users use multi-touch gestures to control their screens.  The buttonless mouse uses a nano-sized USB receiver that lets you mouse up to 10 feet away.  You’ll use one-finger gestures to scroll, flick, or pan within a page, two-finger gestures to snap two windows side by side or to minimize and maximize, and three-finger gestures to show all open windows or reveal the desktop.  The Microsoft Touch Mouse uses BlueTrack technology so it will track on most any surface.  Amazon has the Touch Mouse for $66.99, about 16% off suggested list price.

    Isn’t essentially a classic Microsoft copy of the Apple Magic Mouse (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_Mouse) released 2 years ago?!?

    Oh, I’m sorry, this one is black ;)

    i wouldn’t say it’s a copy, considering the magic mouse is not the only tactile mouse out there, and that is has some big ergonomic issues that the microsoft most likely will not suffer of ;)
