Ah! Which button should I click?

File this one under: OHMYGAWD…

Apple has launched a new mouse called the Mighty Mouse with two button capability but without two physical buttons…its got a smooth surface but is touch sensitive and can interpret a right or left tap as a right or left button click .

David Moody, Apple’s vice president of Mac product marketing, explained it took this long to develop a two button capable mouse because:

“There’s lots and lots of multibutton mice on the market but they come with some complexity. We just weren’t willing to compromise on design or ease of use.”

Oh, please….[panicked Apple user] Oh no which button do I press the left one or the right one? It’s so horribly complicated.[/panicked Apple user]

All I can do is roll my eyes.

    Pretty much what I thought when I read the news… Granted I think the mouse looks pretty neat, it’s really not necessary for him to insult all Apple customers by saying they’d have a hard time with the “complexity” of a mouse…

    Sheesh.

    Way to go Moody!

    I will stick with my Logitech Black Limited Edition Optical Mouse, the new multibutton mouse from apple looks too much like a tylenol pill in my opinion.
