Hello and welcome to my review of the Magic Mouse
The Magic Mouse is Apple's only wireless bluetooth mouse, and comes standard with most Macintosh desktops. The Magic Mouse is unique in that it is the only mouse to have a multitouch surface on top, in fact, the top of the mouse is all multitouch touchscreen, allowing for gestures without physical buttons
The magic mouse is still a point and click mouse, but with the extra touchscreen, productivity on Lion is brought to a new level. Today, I'm going to be reviewing the magic mouse in 3 different scenarios: video editing, gaming, and day to day web browsing.
First up is gaming. Because of something called inertia scrolling on the magic mouse, using the scroll wheel on it can be very annoying. If you flick too hard, you will keep scrolling and scrolling, most likely missing your target. This happens the most in games like minecraft, where the scroll wheel is very important. For this reason I would not recommend the Magic Mouse for heavy gaming.
Next up, web browsing. Because of the magic mouse's many multitouch controls, you are able to browse the web like it was meant to using Safari. Using the touchscreen, you are able to scroll, zoom, go back and forth, and change windows quite easily. Apple did a good job at using the magic mouse in Lion, as many new gestures where added along with it.
The Magic Mouse is an overall great mouse, it does have a slight learning curve however I feel that once you get used to it, you can be very productive using it. Thank you for watching this video, this is a new workflow for me, so if you could critique me in the comments that would be great.
