Logitech gets touchy-feely with Touch Mouse M600

Logitech tries to make their version of Apple’s Magic Mouse by moving touch sensitivity to the mouse itself with the Logitech Touch Mouse M600.

A touch of the familiar
The touch surface responds immediately to your touch for more direct, natural and intuitive mousing.

Silky smooth scrolling
Your finger is the scroll wheel. Logitech Flow Scroll software gives you fluid, continuous, free-flowing web and email scrolling like on your touch screen smartphone.

Scroll and swipe where you like
No guesswork. Scroll and swipe wherever your fingertips rest on the mouse. A slow swipe is perfect for reading online. A quick flick gets you to the bottom of the page fast.

The blog announcement of the mouse touts how smooth it is and how intuitive it is to use thanks to the touch interface. The Touch Mouse M600 was named a CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree.

I like Logitech mice but I’ll be sticking to my corded laser mouse. Of course, they also have the Logitech Cube to check out too.

    Its no wonder this new Logitech M600 mouse won the award since no other mouse can hold a candle to it.  I remember there was a monster version that had a touch sensitive scroll ball so it doesn’t require the user to move their arm.  Obviously, they have developed that idea into a fully integrated touch mouse.  Personally, innovation is only part of the solution for me, because it has to be useful too.  I was thrilled to find out my employer, DISH, received the prestigious “Innovations” award for some features on the new Hopper multi-room receiver.  It records four HD shows on one tuner from 7-10, which is an industry first.  Obviously, Logitech knows the less movement of a computer user the less pain over time, and DISH knew that a majority of DVR users record primetime shows anyway.  That’s similar to people who want less movement when using a mouse, but that’s a no brainer.
