The Evolution of the Apple Mouse

27 September 2010

Take a walk down memory lane — Mashable have a photo gallery showing the Evolution of the Apple Mouse.

With the exception of the 1983 Lisa mouse (with a steel ball!) and the Magic Trackpad I’ve used every single one throughout the years. Whilst the ‘puck’ mouse was the most uncomfortable they’ve all suffered from a lack of good ergonomics and I’ve never found an Apple mouse that’s comfortable to use for extended periods of time. I tried a Magic Mouse as recently as last week and didn’t get on with it unfortunately. I’m hoping to try out a Magic Trackpad soon.

I’m currently using a Logitech MX Revolution. Whilst it’s the most comfy mouse I’ve ever owned it still invokes pains in my right hand, wrist & fingers.
