[5:00 PM] Contour Design Brings Mouse Relief To PowerMac G4 Owners

Hot on the heels of the release of the PowerMac G4 and its new Graphite color scheme, Contour Design has released a new version of its UniMouse to match the silvery look. The UniMouse offers a USB connection and programmable buttons for a mouse that beats the included iPuck for many adult users. According to Contour Design:

Contour Design, international corporate leader in ergonomically designed input devices, today announced the first USB mouse matching the all new G4.

About Contour's UniMouse

The UniMouse&Mac250; offers a Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface with 3 programmable buttons for iMac's, G3's and G4's. It features a Full Control Panel (USB OverDrive), application specific settings, line by line scrolling, and Cursor control settings. If you don't want a full control panel and simply want to choose from preset configurations, drop in drivers (extensions) are available from contour design directly. The UniMouse has a sleek ergonomic body, with soft rubber side grips for maximum comfort and control. Line by line Resolution makes this a Precision mouse for Precision work. When the UniMouse was first released in February, it received the highest awards, including 4.5 out of 5 apples.

The UniMouse also offers USB plug-and-play compatibility with PCs that are running Windows 98 or higher. On PCs, the middle button can soft-scroll in any direction and the right button provides contextual menus options. The two outer buttons can be reversed using the Windows standard mouse control panel.

You can find more information about the new UniMouse as well as the other flavors that match the iMac and the Blue & White G3, at the company's web site. The UniMouse is priced at US$42.95.
