Yesterday Apple quietly launched a number of significant new products. The launch is obviously timed to take wind out of the sails of the upcoming Windows 7 launch. Some of the highlights of the Apple launch include:

– The Magic Mouse: new wireless bluetooth mouse with multi-touch

– A 27 inch iMac (a 21.5 inch iMac as well)

– A new hardware remote that also works with your iPhone or iPod;  no longer comes free with iMac purchase

Mac Mini in a server version with no optical drive but has a second internal hard drive providing 1 terabyte of storage

– New white plastic MacBook that has a bigger hard drive than the MacBook Pro and boasts 7-hour battery life

– Upgraded Time Capsule and Airport Extreme

The product of most interest to me at the moment is the Magic Mouse. I wonder if the gestures would translate through Synergy when working on my PC via my Mac. I doubt it.
