Cult of Mac is reporting that the company that popularized the mouse is about to kill it off:
We’ve gotten word from a previously reliable source that Apple is discontinuing the Magic Mouse in favor of the Magic Trackpad. Our retail source has informed us that Magic Mouse inventory is not being replenished for Apple stores, and that Apple is finally phasing out the Magic Mouse.
Um, I think that’s a bit of a stretch, don’t you?
UPDATE: A stretch indeed. Cult of Mac has added this to the story:
Update: Our source now informs us that while the Magic Mouse disappeared from inventory earlier today, it has now been resurrected with a new part number, which may imply an upgrade. I’m sure we’re not alone in saying we’re glad the rumors of the Magic Mouse’s demise have proven to be an exaggeration.
Hey, it’s August, and the news is slow. How many page hits did they generate with this story?
