Mighty Mouse


Leave it to Apple to come out with a multi-button mouse without multiple buttons. Instead they use sensors under the skin of the mouse to detect where the click occured. In addition there are “force-sensing” buttons to detect if you squeeze the mouse and a scroll ball that tracks vertical and horizontal scrolling.

It’s wired and at CAN$ 65 it’s a little expensive. But that’s OK, I’ve got a pair of scissors and absolutely no aversion to debt.

Printing from Classic in Tiger

I don’t know why I didn’t see this elsewhere, but this is pretty sweet. According to this hint on macosxhints, in Tiger your Classic environment should be able to print to any printer you have configured in OS X… without needing to install Classic drivers, use the Chooser, or have AppleTalk enabled.

Did I mention that was sweet?
