Tag: Magic Mouse

  • When you move house….

    …you realise just how many mice you have – even a boxed [wikipop search=”Apple Desktop Bus”]ADB [/wikipop] one…

    …although you use the Magic Trackpad for everything these days. There are probably a couple more somewhere ;-).

  • Magic Mice and Menu Bars

    Finally caught a Magic Mouse which is as good as anticipated. I did not have a problem with the old [W:Apple Mighty Mouse] although a lot of people complained about them. I have a Logitech wireless mouse that I used with the old Mac but never got around to setting it up with the new Mac – the Mighty Mouse that came with it has done the job.

    I did add Magic Prefs but have not really needed the extra pinches or swipes as yet – but will experiment with configuring it for flying X Plane. Magic Prefs added yet another icon to the ever leftward expansion across the menu bar so here is a quick check of what they are (admittedly some could be removed as they are never used and I have no idea why they are there 😉 )….

    It’s a difficult choice….

    OO or Magic?

    Not really 😉
