If you have had problems with Apple’s Magic Mouse causing fatigue you may want to try this. I haven’t had too much of a problem but I think I will give it a try. The cost is reasonable ($12 at the time of this posting) and it may give me more comfort while working so why not.

UPDATE

After receiving my MMFix I tried it and while it does improve the feel of the mouse mine keeps coming off. This may be just a defect in my particular MMFix? I’m sure that the guy that designed and sells the MMFix isn’t trying to rip people off and if it’s not just that mine had a defect and he receives more reports of them not staying on he will improve the design. I feel that he’s the type of person that really just wanted to solve a problem and share the solution with others.

UPDATE 2

MMFix has contacted me and said that there was a batch that didn’t suction correctly and that a new MMFix has been shipped to me.

Why I Want an iPad

February 3, 2010

I’m just looking at it for what it DOES offer. Some people, mostly Apple haters, are coming up with all kinds of ways it fails.

I’ll love it because it’s a very portable, easy to hold content device! I can sit in a chair or in bed and have a device that’s easy to hold and watch movies, email, surf the web, tweet and other social things like FB. Also do blog updates! It offers all of the things, besides graphics work, that I spend most of my time on the computer for but allows me to get away from the desk or holding a awkward laptop and let’s me get comfortable!

Yeah I don’t think it’s going to change everything but it has potential to bring a lot more media content to a easy to hold and portable device that’s easy to use and read on with color.

Movies, video blogs and normal, magazines, books, training content, how to video content, educational content (text books), email that’s easy to use and organize away from a computer, all the social media, music medical records for Dr’s offices and hospitals and more. Also controlling automated home devices and probably other remote control devices and the remotes can be user configurable to your prefs.

Anyways I see a lot of potential and Apples pretty good at doing deals and making things happen.

Apple Magic Mouse

Apple Magic Mouse

I have tried wireless mice before and they have never worked for me for design work, just too much lag or inconsistent performance when doing intricate Photoshop or other similar work. I have been waiting for Apple to design a new mouse that takes care of the Apple Mouse (previously Mighty Mouse) track ball gunking issue. I love the way the Mighty Mouse works when the track ball isn’t having issues but if it’s been a while I know the frustration is coming soon.

Well then Apple came out with the Magic Mouse and it is Magic! I bought one Friday at an Apple store after making sure I could return it if it doesn’t work for my design needs and was assured there is a 14 day return policy. As soon as I arrived home I set it up and downloaded the driver update. I then cranked up Photoshop and low and behold the Magic Mouse works great! Finally I’m completely happy with my mouse and it’s even wireless. I was beginning to wonder if anyone would ever come up with a wireless mouse that is useable for Graphic Design.

The purpose of this post is to inform others about a wireless mouse that in my opinion works for design work but I’m also liking the functionality of the touch sensitive surface and gestures.

This may be nothing but I don’t recall seeing all of these choices before on my AT&T iPhone account area? Does anyone else know if they have always been there? The view filter choices just seemed interesting to me.

Could it have to do with planned iPhone video calling, multimedia messaging, and video exchange? Maybe these are choices that have been there all along but I just don’t recall seeing them.
