Griffin Technology’s USB-based PowerMate device has become a popular add-on for Mac users looking to add a rotary controller. Now it’s
available in black, one more time.
The PowerMate is a versatile accessory that can be used for everything from jog/shuttle control in audio and video applications to scrolling through spreadsheets, Web pages and e-mail. It features a glowing blue underside that can be optionally deactivate, which pulses when the Mac is asleep.
The normal finish for the PowerMate is silver. Griffin has made a limited run of the black PowerMate before, reportedly selling through its stock in less than two days. Outside of the finish, the device is functionally identical to its silver counterpart.
