Both are now Universal Binary and sport a few bug fixes and new features. ShapeShifter is a very c...

I've had keyboards and mice on my mind for the last few days so I thought I'd see what you all are using. To get the poll rolling I asked a few of my colleagues here at TUAW HQ to chime in, too. David Chartier: iMac - Apple Pro Keyboard with a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 4.0. Most comfortable.mo...

If you're old enough to remember the fiasco that was the Apple III, you may know what I'm talking about. The Apple III was supposed to be Apple's business computer. It flopped, in part because Steve Jobs demanded no fans were to be used in cooling the beast. The result? The machine would overheat, l...

John Gruber linked the blog of Mike Rohde, a visual designer who discovered a slick scrolling trick built into Mac OS X: with a standard scrolling mouse, you can hold the shift key in most apps to scroll horizontally. Mike cites his day job apps like Photoshop and Illustrator, but this seems to work...

If that Mighty Mouse of Apple's isn't fulfilling your need for classic cartoon references or laz0r-based accuracy, the new Danger Mouse from MacMice might do the trick -- plus it tosses in a nice, fresh pop cultural reference to boot. The Danger Mouse sticks close to Apple design cues, but splits it...

Riddle me this: what uses more power when it is stationary as opposed to when it is in use? Apple's new wireless Mighty Mouse. Ram Sripracha noticed that the Mighty Mouse features a LED which provides the user with some feedback. When the mouse isn't paired with a computer the LED flashes, a fairly...

So we're sure there's a select few who have managed to resist the temptation to cut the cord and pick up Apple's newest Mighty Mouse, and unless you simply wouldn't feel whole without having it in your collection, you should probably stick with your current rodent. The Unofficial Apple Weblog tried ...

While we're certainly not rushing out to snatch up Apple's new Wireless Mighty Mouse, the heavy response to this Bluetooth-equipped rodent makes us think that a lot of you Macheads out there are eager to learn more before laying down your $70. With that in mind, we figured a full gallery of unboxi...

Well now we know why Apple "forgot" to file for ye olde confidentiality agreement on the Bluetooth Mighty Mouse FCC filing: they were planning on releasing the wireless rodent into the wild just hours after the documents went live. That's right, if you're looking to cut the cord and add some sweet...

Just as everyone expected, Apple has released a Bluetooth version of the Mighty Mouse, bringing wireless capabilities to the peripheral for the first time. Like the recent FCC filing leak suggested, the device is powered by AA batteries, but according to the tech specs on Apple's site the new wirele...

Ahh, thank goodness for the FCC. You see, one must get approval from the FCC before releasing anything with wireless technology in it, such as... oh let's say a Bluetooth Mighty Mouse. Pictured above you see a prototype for a cordless, Bluetooth Might Mouse from everyone's favorite Cupertino comput...

Looks like Apple forgot to file for ye olde confidentiality agreement, but today an FCC filing showed off Apple's latest device: the Mighty Mouse with Bluetooth. If anyone's surprised, well, that'd be pretty silly of you being that a wireless / Bluetooth Mighty Mouse is what's been asked for of App...

Apple has released an updated technical support document on the proper way to clean your Mighty Mouse. As much as I like my Mighty Mouse, I do have to clean it way more often than I ever had to clean my other mice like the basic two-button/scrollwheel Logictech one that I've been using for years. Th...

This is great. The industrious folks at bounav.free.fr have come up with a pretty cool mod. Specifically, they've put the guts of an Apple Mighty Mouse into the case of an old Apple ADB mouse, resulting in the ADB Mighty Mouse. The left click and right click functionality are both intact, as is the ...

Yesterday, we linked to an image that showed up on Flickr that seemed to be the red, glowing visage of a mouse as generated by the light on the underside of an Apple Mighty Mouse. Whether or not Apple intended for their mice to put on this little display is really irrelevant, as it's just fun to sh...

This one is a bit weird, so bear with us. It seems that Flickr user Dan Bowels noticed that the light on the underside of his Mighty Mouse produces what (kind of) looks like a mouse's head on the surface of his desk. Has he stumbled upon an ultra-rare hardware easter egg, or is this just an optical ...

It always amazes me when I see these dissections. Someone plunks down a neat stack of their own, hard-earned cash for a brand new Apple product that they know will be dissembled the instant they get it home. Of course, I'm always happy enough to look. The urge to "see how it works" has bee...

Gee, that didn't take long! A mere 10 days after Apple released their new Mighty Mouse, Plentycom Systems has released a driver that adds a bunch of functions that Apple neglected to include in their own driver.SteerMouse allows you to assign and customize various functions to the Mighty Mouse's &qu...
