Now This Is A “Mighty Mouse”

[via MacBlogz]
If this thing does come true it will be one of the best mice I’ve seen ever. A Multi-touch Mighty Mouse would be killer. It would truly redeem the name of the Mighty Mouse, which till now is a severely over priced but slightly lacking pointing device.

Apple’s Final MacWorld

[via Engadget]
