Microsoft’s touchy mouse
MICROSOFT has launched the Touch Mouse, a new multi-touch device designed and optimised for Windows 7 users.
Equipped with BlueTrack Technology and a Nano transceiver, the buttonless mouse features gesture-style commands with one, two or three fingers in addition to the traditional point and click.
One finger flicks allow users to scroll 360° through the document they’re in. Two finger swipes will allow them to manage an active window and perform tasks such as maximising and minimising win- dows or shifting them left or right.
With three fingers, users can switch between different tasks or clear all open windows. A flick of the thumb allows users to move forward and back in programs such as Internet Explorer, PowerPoint, and Windows Photo Viewer.
The Touch Mouse, which has a worldwide three-year limited warranty, is now available at a recommended retail price of RM269. ++++ www.microsoft.com/hardware
