Microsoft Touch Mouse
Article Publish Date:
Much like most of you out there (the ones that actually read these lines) primarily i like to use wired gaming mice units mainly because of their extra gaming oriented buttons and of course superior speeds compared to normal units, aside their excellent build quality. From time to time however i have tested quite a few wireless units that promise equal speeds and accuracy but to date i have yet to actually see an wireless mouse going up against the best wired gaming mice in the market and win something which i don't think shall change anytime soon. Microsoft decided to take a different route entirely by taking things a step further and so instead of making a blazing fast wireless gaming mouse they just launched their latest Touch Mouse which is aimed only at users with Windows 7 based operating systems.
Microsoft Hardware was formed in 1982 to develop a device that would help people use the company’s new word processing program. The device was a mouse and the application was called Word, laying the foundation for a future of delivering hardware that helps people better and more easily use software. In the quarter century since, Microsoft Hardware has continually raised the bar, designing revolutionary peripherals that deliver groundbreaking performance, comfort and design. From the original "green-eyed mouse" to groundbreaking products like the LifeCam Cinema™ and the Arc™ Mouse, Microsoft Hardware has delivered exceptional mice, keyboards, communication products, and gaming gear that has changed the way the world works, plays, and connects.
We received the latest Microsoft Touch Mouse last week and since then i have been quite skeptical about it not only because it's wireless and so not my first choice to begin with but also because of its weird design which actually reminds me of one of those big shot designer Italian shoes. In any case the concept behind the Touch Mouse is quite interesting since it allows the user to perform various commands by using up to three fingers (gestures) while the main buttons along with the scroll wheel are touch ones. Overall the Microsoft Touch mouse is a very intriguing unit but is it suited for just about everyone? Well that's what we're here to find out.
