Maybe it's just me (and probably, it IS) but is anyone else sensing a sort of odd "sex toy" overtone to Apple's marketing of its new Mighty Mouse?
"...lets you move anywhere inside a document, without lifting a finger. And with touch-sensitive technology concealed under the seamless top shell, you get the programability of a four-button mouse in a single-button design. Click, roll, squeeze and scroll..."
(yea, baby. i don't even have to lift a finger? this sounds like my ideal scenario.)
"Spry and Mighty...
...Use it any way you work: Stick with single-button simplicity or click with multibutton efficiency."
(woo hoo. no tech-agra needed!)
Time is round. Space is curved...Plenty of applications require you to do more than scroll up and down...Explore the farthest reaches of your files...with one hand tied behind your back (or holding a cup of coffee or typing). Mighty Mouse gives you room to roam."
(exactly. space is curved. tampon manufacturers seemed to have picked up on this marketing angle; why not apply it to computer accessories?)
"You’ll Really Click...
Touch-sensitive technology...detect[s] where you’re clicking...But the innovation doesn’t end there...force-sensing buttons on either side of Mighty Mouse that let you squeeze the mouse between your thumb and finger, activating Mac OS X Tiger Dashboard, Exposé or a whole host of other, customizable features — instantly."
(hmm. i usually only hope to 'clicking' with a potential date, but now i can extend my compatibility issues to my computer? excellent. and instantly too? perfect, because we all know that i possess the patience of a toddler.)
I mean, I suppose all of those PC "multi-button" addicts out there are hot&bothered, but I'm lukewarm. I guess that I'm more of a simple, one button gal. Also, matte white? How do you clean that after an intense programming session? Heh heh...
