+ - Apple Files Patent for Display Mouse->

Submitted by astrodoom
astrodoom (1396409) writes "AppleInsider has posted a story detailing a new patent application by apple that hints at the possibility of adding a touchscreen to the company's magic mouse. At a basic level this could mean things like customizable colors or artwork displayed on the user's mouse, but the possibilities extend much farther to fully customizable mouse layouts and program controls. Apple Insider comments on the possibilities: "The display on the mouse would change according to what the user may be doing on their Mac. As an example, the application describes displaying a number of icons for quickly selectable options when a user is running Apple's Pages word processing application. Switching over to the spreadsheet software Numbers would reconfigure the buttons on the screen to allow for commands in that respective application.""
