When Apple launched their new iMac line-up for the Christmas Season last Tuesday, I was certainly pleased to see that their higher end iMac's are now earmarked to sport Intel's i5 and i7 Nehalem processors by November. Equally fun was the news that Apple's iMacs would have LED backlighting, something that was forecasted in a March 2009 patent report. Upon closer scrutiny of Apple's new line-up, it is now clear that Apple's new multi-touch mouse, rebranded as the Magic Mouse, was equally forecasted in yet another patent report posted in June 2008 which was appropriately titled "Apple's Mighty Mouse to Incorporate Touch Pad." In that patent, Apple pointed to several advantages of a multi-touch mouse: One being that "it requires no obvious button to actuate a GUI movement. Buttons break the surface of the housing and are therefore less aesthetically pleasing." Secondly, the patent stated that "the user can manipulate his or her finger side to side for horizontal scrolling." Yet according to that same patent, Apple's new mouse may still have more Magic Tricks up its sleeve for the future.
