Sneak has been watching with some bemusement the sheer amount of media coverage given to Apple's latest product. No, it isn't a new release of the world-beating Unix-based Mac OS X operating system, but…. a mouse. Yes, that's right a mouse. With more than one button.
Twenty years later than everyone else, Apple has finally discovered that a single-button mouse is a little bit limiting on your input options.
But strictly speaking, the Mighty Mouse doesn't have buttons, but sensors that detect which side of its upper surface you are pressing; "Capacitive sensors under Mighty Mouse's seamless top shell detect where your fingers are and predict your clicking intentions, so you don’t need two buttons - just two fingers."
By an amazing coincidence, this is precisely what Sneak will need the next time Apple wants to talk about its latest 'innovation'.
