Logitech Wireless Touchpad: reinventing the wheel
27 May 2012
Excerpt: Who ever thought that turning a mouse on its belly and rubbing its little rubber nubbin would be preferable to standard mouse control? The trackball actually predates the mouse , so screw that antiquated form of movement and embrace the gleaming future of control with the Logitech Wireless Touchpad. With the colour scheme of a killer whale, the Touchpad is a thing of refined beauty. Logitech knows how to design desktop gadgets.
Excerpt: Mac users shouldn’t get all the multi-touch fun (patents aside). Seems someone out there agrees. The Logitech Wireless Touchpad ($50) will bring multi-finger control with one, two, three, four, and ten figure scrolling for Minority Report like controlling (almost) of your PC. Sorry, no Macs. Spend more time plowing through Gmail, hauling through Facebook, and breezing through applications with its 5″ touch surface and enduring 4-month battery life.
Excerpt: I have been a mouse guy my whole life. I have had a contentious lifelong relationship with the touchpad on my laptops and have always gravitated to the mouse. I tried several trackball devices over the years thinking that perhaps I was missing something. But the mouse always tugged at my heartstrings and pulled me back. My current mouse that I have used for over a year, and which I love, is the Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse .
Pros: Good build quality, Dead-simple to install, Sexy design (yes, I said sexy)
Cons: 5-inch touch area not big enough, Needs more gestures
