Apple's latest product is so “magical and revolutionary” that the Cupertino company named it Magic Trackpad. The company, understandably, has a soft spot for multi-touch navigation. Several months after it introduced the Magic Mouse, the company has launched yet another multi-touch pointing device. The Magic Trackpad is essentially a standalone version of the MacBook Pro trackpad. However, it is significantly larger and boasts 80% more real estate than the trackpad on Apple notebooks.

Powered by two AA batteries, the wireless trackpad connects to a Mac using Bluetooth . Mac owners will have to shell out $69 for the Magic trackpad . By the way, Apple has also decided to revolutionize the way AA batteries are charged with a $29 battery charger of its own.
