A Look At Apple's Multi-touch Magic Mouse

At least they say to try it at a store. But all you get at a Apple store is "what can I get you to buy" attitude as soon as you walk in.

1- It doesn't look like you can rest your hand or fingers on the mouse. This will lead to strain on the wrist.
2- If you like do rest your fingers on the mouse it seems to me that you would randomly be clicking and scrolling as you move the mouse around.
3- Nothing about mouse precision has been mentioned and (from my experience) Apple's mice are not the most accurate. For a company that bills their system for "professionals" have a weak mouse is just bad business.
4- the multi-touch movements seem very unnatural. The guy in the video has to re-adjust his grip to do all the motions. With my current scroll wheel I can do everything that mouse does (and probably faster) without changing my grip.

I am perfectly happy with my few years ofl Microsoft Wireless INtellimouse Explorer 2. I even bought spares.
I not need a mouse where any little touch on it and it looks like it would read it as something rhhat you not want to do.
