  • Ditch The AA Batteries And Run Your Magic Trackpad Off USB Power

    Ditch The AA Batteries And Run Your Magic Trackpad Off USB Power

    Don’t tell the rabid Apple freaks, but the Magic Trackpad is flawed. Really, it is. There is no reason why it should be AA-powered only. A USB option would be awful nice seeing as it might never leave some users desks. But you know what they say,  necessity is the mother of innovation. That’s where this bit of DIY engineer comes in. All you need is a wooden dowel, two screws, a… Read More

  • Of Course Someone Tore Down The New Magic Trackpad

    Of Course Someone Tore Down The New Magic Trackpad

    I mean, the Magic Trackpad is only the latest hot gadget so it only makes sense that one meets its maker in the name of Internet gadget pr0n. Interestingly enough, though, iFixit found the Magic Trackpad to be nothing more the iPhone’s touchscreen logic board paired with the Bluetooth chipset found in the Magic Mouse. Perhaps the Magic Trackpad was born out of necessity to use up extra… Read More

    The Mouse Is Dead. I Just Killed It. Now Can We Move On?

    This morning when I wrote a post about Apple’s new Magic Trackpad, I knew it would be a little controversial. After all, I basically said that it was the beginning of the end of the mouse — a device that everyone reading the post probably still uses for a good chunk of their computing on a daily basis. But I didn’t expect what I said to be that controversial. To the point… Read More

  • Is 3:39 Too Long For A Video On The Magic Trackpad? I Think Not

    9to5Mac posted a video of the Magic Trackpad. Their Zapruderesque exegesis looks at the device from all sides, ensuring us that I will be bereft of a single thing when I line up tomorrow at the mall in order to be one of the first to own the strange, distended trackpad known as the Magic Trackpad.

  • Apple's Magic Trackpad Signals The End Of The Mouse Era

    Apple's Magic Trackpad Signals The End Of The Mouse Era

    Easily the most interesting thing Apple unveiled today is the new Magic Trackpad. Essentially, it’s a larger version of the trackpads that ship with each MacBook and MacBook Pro. But it’s a stand-alone product, meant to be used with desktop computers. So why did Apple feel the need to make such a product? It’s about trends and the future. “Looking at the big picture… Read More

    Voilà! Apple's Magic Trackpad Appears. Multi-Touch On Any Mac For $69

    As you may have noticed, Apple’s online store has been down the past few hours. The reason? New products. Most people seemed to be aware that new Mac Pros and iMacs were coming, but something new was just released to. Meet: the Magic Trackpad. As anticipated last week thanks to an FCC filing (and rumored months before that), the Magic Trackpad is basically a trackpad that you would find on… Read More

    Apple Multi-Touch Appears Ready To Tickle The Desktop

    In front of me right now there’s an enormous 27-inch screen with another 24-inch screen connected to it for use as a second monitor. This massive amount of screen real estate is nice for everything from blogging to watching streaming movies. And yet, I find myself using this set up less and less and instead favor my 15-inch laptop. Why? Simply because I prefer using a multi-touch trackpad… Read More

    Is this the Apple Magic Trackpad? Is WWDC going to be a bust?

    Steve just can’t catch a break. It sure seems like the item above is the unannounced Apple Magic Trackpad, which just got an unofficial Internet debut just like the iPhone 4G/HD ahead of Jobs’ WWDC keynote address later today. Apple might as well pack up their massive banners and simply issue press releases like every other CE company. At this rate, there isn’t going to… Read More
