A new apple mouse with more than one button and a name that makes me cringe whenever i come across it. Which uses only one button and touch-sensors to distinguish between left- and right-clicks. Which apparently has the unfortunate side effect of forcing the user to lift his index finger from the left-”button”-side of the mouse before you can actually perform a right-click. In case this isn’t glaringly obvious to anyone outside apple’s qa department: Dumbest. Thing. Ever. I’ll have to have a play with the m… mouse at my local apple retailer, but i really don’t see this working very well.
While i’m bashing apple: this article about user interface shortcomings in spotlight is by no means exhaustive, but it’s a good start. The mac user interface is steadily deteriorating, but looking at “nine things kde should learn from mac os x” it’s easy to see why i haven’t switched to something else yet: the mac isn’t so much good as it’s a lot less bad than its alternatives.
