Apple Magic Trackpad…your mouse on steroids!

Apple has brought the magic of the touchpad from your laptop to your Mac desktop!  The Magic Trackpad uses the same gestures, and then some, as the touchpads on the MacBooks, such as pinching, scrolling and page turning.  The difference is that this is now all incorporated into a wireless device that can take the place of your mouse and give you so much more in return for a mere $69.  Can you tell what my next purchase is going to be?  Seriously, this looks like a wonderful Bluetooth device to put next to your wireless Apple keyboard that will give you mousing capabilities and so much more.   Apple also offers 6 Nicad batteries and a recharger for $29 to make this economically and ecologically a hit.  Foster Braun
