Normally being quite faithful and happy with Apple's products, I also have to admit that they in my opinion have failed miserably at least once in recent history! Namely with their so called Mighty Mouse. The concept seemed pretty good. Take a regular mouse, make it look good, and ad a scroll-wheel that enables vertical and horizontal scroll.

The past weeks have been filled with Merry Christmas and Happy New Year wishes, the usual stress, last-minute shopping and other holiday "traditions". There hasn't been a lot of activity on the Magazine over the past weeks. Mainly because it has been busy on our end as well - but now it's a new year, with new strength and new efforts.
