Apple Magic Trackpad offers multi-touch gestures for desktop users
Could the introduction of the Apple Magic Trackpad prove to be the death knell of the mouse? We don’t think so, despite the device delivering a similarly intuitive Multi-Touch gesture experience that was previously available on Mac notebook trackpads, to the desktop. Boasting a glass surface that will definitely turn heads, this wireless Magic Trackpad lets you scroll smoothly up and down a page with inertial scrolling, alongside other now familiar gestures such as pinch to zoom in and out, rotating an image using your fingertips, while swiping three fingers will help you flip through a collection of web pages or photos. The Magic Trackpad can also be configured to work as a single button or two button device, while boasting understanding of tap-to-click and a physical click. You can pick up the Magic Trackpad as a separate peripheral for $69 a pop.
