When I first received the Microsoft Wireless Touch Mouse, I’ll admit, I thought it was interesting looking and I couldn’t figure out how it was going to change how I use a mouse. Well, I was wrong.

I plugged in the Microsoft Touch Mouse, installed the software and watched the demo. Interesting! I spent the next few hours trying the mouse out. It took some getting used to, but now I really like it. The motions are different from any mouse I’ve used. There are 1, 2, & 3 finger gestures both vertically & horizontally.

Microsoft Touch Mouse Demo

This video is a good demo of the Touch Mouse.

I really like the way it feels in my hand. It fits perfectly and the dots on the mouse give it a nice texture. My biggest problem was that I would forget that I could do things on the mouse and I would do them the way I normally do. For example, the maximize and minimize of windows. I keeping using the square and x and not sweeping 2 fingers up or down.
