MacMost Now 353: Magic Mouse Custom Gestures

Since the Magic Mouse's surface is one big touch-sensitive area, it was only a matter of time before third-party developers came up with solutions for adding custom gestures. By installing free and inexpensive system extensions, you can assign commands to various swipes and taps.

    Thanks for the info. I agree...trying to set up too many gestures can be confusing. Also...the "tap" gestures are too easy to activate in my opinion and can become annoying. Personally I'm using BetterTouchTool (which is free) and have been very happy with it. More info on BTT:

    Your comment about Apple not building in the preference pane..
    It appears that Apple is moving from a software development strategy, to a content seller strategy. The iPad is simply a vehicle to sell apps. Many are free now, but the iTunes model will soon replace that.
    Apple does not need to develop apps, the community will do it for them, and apple will no doubt soon charge for the distribution. I would guess that iTunes provides a much higher profit margin than an iMac.

    Hi Gary,
    Your news letter is excellent and well worth it.

    I am struggling with iweb & SEO. For a company that does such good work they really drop the ball in some places. I have had the misfortune to try and run a few websites of the same computer and now the jump to trying to SEO to make the sites workable has been and still is a total nightmare. I have flipped the server from mobile me to godaddy (another place where apple is dropping the ball) at almost half the price. Is there anything you can recommend to help with these issues (I already have RageSEO).

    Thanks for an amazing show - I am constantly learning new stuff from you

      If you are concerned about SEO (like I am) then you shouldn't use iWeb. It is really meant for personal sites and quick sites and does not take into account SEO at all.
