Apple now keeps mouse away

       We all have heard of "Apple a day keeps the doc away". But, Apple computer corp. has been redefining that saying by keeping "mice" away.
       Apple on Tuesday unveiled the Magic Trackpad, a touchpad which allows a user to operate the computer using only the gestures made by the finger, thereby eliminating the need for a mouse. The Magic Trackpad costs $69 in the online Apple Store. The battery-powered device looks like a notepad and is made of aluminum and glass. It operates using the Bluetooth wireless technology. The entire surface of Magic Trackpad is one large button, so you can click and double-click anywhere. Magic Trackpad also supports a full set of gestures, including two-finger scrolling, pinching to zoom, rotating with your fingertips, three-finger swiping, and activating Exposé or switching between applications with four fingers. The device incorporates the pinchs and gestures familiar to Apple i Phone users. The maximum range of the device is said to be 33 feet away from the computer and is already featured in Apple's Macbook Pro notebook.
