As first predicted by AppleInsider in March, Apple today introduced Mighty Mouse, its next generation mouse with multiple buttons and a scroll ball.
What did they predict in March, exactly?
According to sources who have so far filed accurate reports on Apple's future hardware plans, the company is feverishly working on a two-button wireless optical mouse that it intends to release.
Well, at least they got the optical part right.
What I predicted in January, on the other hand, is a lot more accurate:
In August, Apple will introduce a programmable optical mouse with multiple touch-sensitive buttons and multi-directional scrolling. It will be named after a cartoon character.
Don't search the archives, though. I didn't want to get into trouble by posting rumours about Apple so I removed the post before I wrote it.
I would have liked to see a mouse with an iPod-like scroll-wheel, as hinted by a patent a while ago, though. The idea of scrolling long documents with a continuous movement of the finger was quite seductive.
