I have seen some strange mice over the years with different shapes and gobs of buttons. Most of them all have a specific purpose in mind be it letting gamers bind a gazillion commands to the mouse or preventing injuries like carpal tunnel for workers who spend lots of time working on a computer each day.
Most mice are pretty much the same as far as their looks go. You can get some with different colors and a few mice don’t follow traditional design, but most do. The Road Mice line is the perfect convergence of hobbies for the computer guy who also likes cars.
I have never been one to think that the mouse form factor that we all know and love needs a complete redesign. I will agree some mice are more comfortable to use than others are, but I like the traditional style myself. Just give me lots of sensitivity and I am good.

After the cut, our live Magic Mouse gallery together with some hands-on first impressions.
Entirely unsurprisingly, the Apple Store has been taken down for the usual hurried "updates". While the same thing happened late last month with no noticeable changes, today we're expecting quite a few modifications what with the very recent speculation that Apple are planning to push out a new MacBook, iMac, Mac mini and even peripheral range.
Update: The store is back, and here's what you can buy.
Apple may be riding high on another successful financial quarter, but we still wouldn't put it past them to announce a few new products this week in order to stick a spoke in the wheels of Windows 7's launch. According to man-in-the-know John Gruber, it's not a product trickle but a flood we should be expecting, with both new notebooks and desktops together with multitouch-compatible peripherals on the cards.
Update: The new range is now live - all the details here
