But this is not the first time Apple has actively removed a feature or limited functionality, only to later add it back in with a simple firmware update.ventro said:
If you watch the Magic Mouse info video on Apple's site and read through reviews on Engadget or Gizmodo, the Magic Mouse shows and limits to only 2 finger gestures (Right Click, Swipe, Scroll).I have to ask, how in the world do people know these things already? I've yet to see a confirmed report of how any of the new products work that were announced today.
So much assumption and matter of fact statements.
+1do non of you guys use hot corners?
Lucky you... for me getting Spaces with a click is something very important as I use it a LOT.+1
I won't miss expose or spaces from my MightyMouse.
It would be interesting tracking the overall distance you do every day just to reach a corner (and of course the time it takes to do that).Hot corners are the way to go anyway, IMO, so you can contiguously drag an object from one window to another through spaces/expose.
So in the end, you use the button in the middle... but you're willing to adapt your behaviour to Apple's lack of usability (and if this feature of a middle button is not provided, it's a big big usability mistake and Apple knows it).I do, however, use the middle button (on the scroll ball) for Dashboard - but, it's no big deal. Having the momentum scrolling (and no physical ball) will be well worth it.
I wonder if my newly purchased steermouse will help this.If you watch the Magic Mouse info video on Apple's site and read through reviews on Engadget or Gizmodo, the Magic Mouse shows and limits to only 2 finger gestures (Right Click, Swipe, Scroll).
Also, as someone mentioned, it's not like Apple didn't invent the 3 and 4 finger gestures last week; they've been out for a year. If they wanted to include it, wouldn't you think they would on launch of their new- multi-touch-ground-breaking mouse??!
It's hard to do 3-4 finger gestures on that small mouse, and even do regular gestures 2 finger style.
Hot corners is the only solution (I use it on my old MBP) BUT it is an annoyance sometimes. I'd much rather be able to do a simple gesture.
