Apple’s New Software Offering Requires Non-Apple Mouse—One With Three Buttons

| News

Apple announced Shake 2.5 yesterday, and buried in the technical specs is a little tidbit that we found both ironic and interesting, a three button mouse. The irony comes from the fact that Apple doesnit offer a three-button mouse, despite cries from its customer base for such an Apple branded device.

From the companyis technical specs page on Shake 2.5:

Macintosh system requirements

  • 800MHz Power PC G4 processor
  • Mac OS X v10.2 or later
  • QuickTime 5.0.4 or later
  • 256MB of RAM
  • 1GB disk space for caching and temporary files
  • Graphics card with 32MB of video memory and OpenGL hardware acceleration, such as the NVIDIA GeForce2 MX or GeForce4 MX or the ATI Radeon 7500
  • Display with 1280-by-1024-pixel resolution and 24-bit color
  • Three-button mouse
