10/03/2011, Love your Magic Trackpad and wish that you could use it for everything including typing? Well, you’re in luck. The folks over at FrogPad have come up with a new accessory called the Magic FrogPad that turns your Apple Magic Trackpad into a compact keyboard. All you have to do is place it on top of the trackpad, run the software and you’re good to go. The Magic FrogPad makes […]
09/01/2011, Ever felt that something on your Magic Trackpad was missing? A number pad perhaps? If you thought that having number pad functions on your Magic Trackpad would be a good idea, thanks to Mobee you will now be able to happily crunch numbers on your Magic Trackpad – great when attempting to do your own taxes!
08/31/2011, If you own a Magic Trackpad, and thinking to yourself – is there anything it can’t it do? Well for one, it can’t replace the numpad that isn’t present on Apple’s latest Mac keyboards anymore – unless you have Mobee’s Magic Numpad. If you sorely miss the functionality of a numpad on your Mac, this might be solution to your problem. The Mobee Magic Numpad is comprised of “Magic Film” […]
08/05/2011, You know how fast people jump into conclusions these days? For instance, folks who troll the website of a particular hardware manufacturer (and not just Apple in this case) might report of a device being yanked off – sparking off rumors that it will be discontinued, while speculation abounds as to what will replace that retired device. Unless it is given the official stamp of retirement, we would prefer to […]
11/01/2010, A useful prototype keyboard has surfaced and it’s built using two Apple Magic Trackpads. The multi-touch devices can be used as a keyboard as it’s capable of picking up several touches at the same time. The prototype pictured above shows the locations of the keys using printable transparency sheets and to further ensure where the home row is, a dab of clear fingernail polish has been added to guide you. […]
08/25/2010, Think that Apple’s recently-announced Magic Trackpad is a little too boring for your tastes? The folks over at ColorWare are here to help you out again, and this time they’re offering to customize your Magic Trackpad with different colors for $75. Sure, it’s pretty steep, but at least your device will stand out compared to the others out there, right?
08/19/2010, While many folks would love to have all their gadgets be wireless, there’s no denying that it can be irritating to have to replace the batteries every now and then. Obviously the creator of this hack felt the same way, as he decided that he didn’t want his Apple Magic Trackpad to be battery powered and hooked up a USB cord to a little wooden piece and popped it straight […]
08/05/2010, Earlier this week rumors and a picture began to circulate teasing a new mouse/trackpad from Microsoft that might compete with Apple’s recently-announced Magic Trackpad. Now is seems that Microsoft might be calling it the Arc Touch Mouse, as the company has also registered the domain arctouchmouse.com earlier this year. Word is that Microsoft is planning to introduce this touch-sensitive mouse as a cheap alternative to costly touchscreen displays, though it’s […]
08/03/2010, Apple’s Magic Trackpad was unleashed to the masses with great fanfare late last month, and while it won’t phase out the mouse completely anytime soon (being a fun alternative to it instead), Microsoft could just jump in on Apple’s party with their own version of the Trackpad – at least that’s what the device could possibly be as you view it on the right of this post. Nothing’s official just […]
07/28/2010, When Apple releases a new “magic” product (or any product) there are always three sides throwing comments at it: the “religious” crowd, the “haters” crowd and the fairly reasonable (but quiet) crowd. Figuring out how big the various factions are can be quite daunting as polarized groups tend to be so much noisier. Anyway, the conversation (or arguments) has been raging on whether or not the Magic Trackpad is a […]
07/27/2010, If you’ve already decided to drop your hard-earned cash for Apple’s newly-announced Magic Trackpad, you’ll want to take note to install the driver software package for the device, as it’s a required installation. With it installed, users will be able to enjoy the inertial scrolling and three-finer dragging features of this trackpad. It’s currently available on Apple’s support site as a 75MB download.
07/27/2010, It didn’t take very long for rumor to become fact, and initial leaks of the Apple Magic Trackpad proved right – this wireless touch input device has just debuted in Apple’s Store app for iOS 4. It works as previously imagined, where this glass-covered device boasts an aluminum shell that replicates what the multitouch area delivers in Apple’s range of MacBooks, save for the fact that this experience is now […]
07/19/2010, Apple’s upcoming Magic Trackpad is right on track (pun not intended) to arrive pretty soon, considering the good people at the FCC have already approved it. Chances are this could very well be announced as early as this week, although we will need to stay tuned to find out further. Of course, there was no reference to the words “Magic Trackpad” in the filing, although the device is going by […]
02/26/2010, Apple filed for the Magic Trackpad trademark just today with the US Patent & Trademark Office. We don’t have the full details about this device, although Magic Trackpad will most likely refer to an external peripheral device that targets desktop computers and notebooks which are plugged into external displays. After all, with more and more of OS X relying on multi-touch gestures, Apple will most probably offer desktop users a […]
