[Engadget] Microsoft Touch Mouse unveiled, available for $80 in June - Page 2

post #11 of 52
This is surreal, I was just talking to a friend of mine today and asked him if the Magic Mouse would work on the PC, and now I read this. For people who never used OS X it really is a simple and intuitive OS to use. The PC is still too complicated, not personal at all.

I think you meant if this will beat the Magic Mouse. As a PC user I have to admit Apple products have superior touch functionality, user friendliness and build quality. Apple blew past the $300 billion market cap for a reason.

I can see how that can be problem. I already see how this pirated Magic Mouse being too difficult to use, cramming too many features into a simple device is never a good thing.

Anyone notice how the 3 finger function in the video mimics Mac's Exposé "all windows" function?

This isn't a touchpad, it's a mouse, plus you're on a PC dominant forum.
Shhhhh!

No, I meant what I said. I wonder if this will be better. I don't hate apple products, but their mouses are atrocious. I don't know anyone that holds their mouse like this. Almost afraid to touch it, so uncomfortable to me at least (and many others I know, never met someone who liked it in fact). I like how MS made this mouse a more traditional shape, though it would not surprise me if apples touch implementation was superior. Pick your poison. Comfortable low quality touch, or uncomfortable high quality touch. At least, that's my guess.



And PC's are too complicated and impersonal? No offense, but I totally disagree. However, that's totally off topic.

The first thing I said when I saw a track pad was "I will never use that!"
The first thing I said when I saw Apple's Magic mouse was "Is that really helpful for anyone? I bet it's not worth it's price!"

So seeing this mouse is "Really Microsoft? really?"

For a PC user, the Mac OS is really confusing. I have a Mac Book Pro, I tried using the Mac OS for months, but it really felt restricting. Probably because I am not used to it. Now it boots automatically into Windows 7.

It really is ridiculous to me when I see people claim the Mac OS is more user friendly than say Windows 7. If you had no understanding of either, I guarantee they would seem equally unfriendly.

What do you mean by "personal"?

That is simply not true. PC's and Mac's are made from exactly the same components. Not similar, but exactly the same. The only difference is the shell they are put in, and the OS. I really don't think the new Macbook shells are of a high build quality. It has been proven that the i7 processor in them have inadequate cooling. So they are great, unless you want to use the potential of the components.

Yes there are equally bad and even worse put together systems for PC. Neither will match the power, price and build quality of my machine. Or any machine put together by someone who has a basic understanding of how it all goes together.

Also, isn't the magic mouse universally thought to be awful?

Marketing and presentation.

A high number of shares issued and an increasing price which hasn't been split yet?

Strange, would be useless for gaming and probably eats batteries for fun. But awesome never the less. This is the first time I've seen anything like this.
