The Mouse That Roared

The best news out of the New York metro area this summer wasn't the New Jersey Devils' Stanley Cup victory. It was Apple's decision to take its hockey puck-like mouse and send it away faster than a Claude Lemieux slap shot.

Both the mouse and the munchkin-compatible keyboard head off to well-deserved graves with the release of the Apple Pro Mouse and Apple Pro Keyboard, already shipping with Apple's newest computers.

The Apple Pro Keyboard sports full-size function keys, audio controls, navigation keys, and a number pad. It also features a media-eject key that lets you eject CDs and DVDs without having to drag and drop desktop icons.

The Apple Pro Mouse features a more ergonomic shape and optical tracking instead of a ball. Apple trumpets the mouse as "uniquely designed to fit any hand," due to its click-anywhere full-surface button. Optical tracking means you won't need a mouse pad and won't have to worry about cleaning gummy mouse balls ever again.
