Apple to cut the cord on the Mighty Mouse

Apple Computer has developed a wireless version of its Mighty Mouse, according to a U.S. regulatory filing.

Apple Computer has developed a wireless version of its Mighty Mouse, according to a U.S. regulatory filing.

The new version of the mouse uses Bluetooth to maintain a link with a computer and so Apple is required to gain regulatory approval from the Federal Communications Commission before it can sell the device in the U.S. The FCC publishes applications for approval and it's from this information that details of the mouse, which has the codename "M6," were disclosed.

The wireless Mighty Mouse looks much the same as the current wired version with the obvious exception of the cord. The mouse is powered by two AA-batteries and users will be able to check the current battery level through the computer's system preferences menu.

No information about when the mouse will be announced or put on sale was included in the filing. Apple typically uses major conferences to announce new products and the next such event is its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco from August 7 to 11.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
