The rumor mill

Apple’s releases a new multi-button mouse You gotta love it when a rumor site goes the extra mile to claim something that has been rumored —or at least widely desired— for more than a decade as their own handiwork. AppleInsider is reporting that they first predicted Mighty Mouse five months ago.

Assuming for a moment they’ve forgotten that as an air-quotes “News Agency” they aren’t supposed to predict anything, they’re supposed to report the news, they would also presumably be praying to whatever gods they hold dear that their readers don’t click to check out this ‘prediction’.

According to sources who have so far filed accurate reports on Apple's future hardware plans, the company is feverishly working on a two-button wireless optical mouse that it intends to release.

I don’t need to send you to the Mighty Mouse ‘tech specs’ page to point out the difference between a two-button wireless mouse and a four-button wired one, do I? Ugh. Beyond that little tidbit, I’m surprised the hyperactive Mac rumor mill didn’t see this one coming… maybe Apple really has plugged those leaks.
