Apple May Be Working On Touch-Based Mightier Mouse

Here's the latest Apple rumor: The Mighty Mouse may get mightier-or less suckier, because that nipple sucks a lot—with new looks and touch technology. I hope so, although I would be just as happy with an anti-filth mouse.

According to AppleInsider, the mouse's nipple—the ball in the middle that gets useless after a while thanks to dirt and sweat—is going away. Instead, the mightier mouse will use a multitouch solution to replace it, likely integrated with the housing itself.

Their sources also say that it will likely at last abandon the white polycarbonate look in favor of an aluminum finish. I would certainly like a metal mouse, but I will not hold my breath about any rumors anymore. [AppleInsider]
