Fixing the Magic Mouse

Mon, Mar 22, 2010


When we first reviewed Apple’s Magic Mouse, we concluded that while it had a lot of positives, there were two glaring shortcomings. The first was its obvious lack of support for Expose and Dashboard, and the second being that the Magic Mouse, while certainly sleek, isn’t terribly comfortable to use.

To remedy that, a product designer came up with a shapely piece of silicon (minds out the gutter, people) that attaches to the Magic Mouse via a suction cup and supposedly adds some ergonomic comfort to a device that sorely needs it.

If you love the Magic Mouse but simply can’t stand how it feels, you can purchase the above contraption for $10 over here.

    Sorry but this is just absolutely ugly… Murder of the form factor.

    I use my Magic mouse all day long (over 12 hours), and I don’t have any problems with it. Unfortunately, this block of silicone is no use to me. As far as Exposé or Dashboard is concerned, I use BetterTouchTool and have defined a 3 finger click for Dashboard. I don’t use Exposé.
