Quote from Billster:
"By integrating all components within today's mouse and keyboard into the BCM2042, low system costs can be achieved to approach the price points of legacy-wired mice and keyboards." Apparently Apple missed that memo."
Wow that typifies the bias strewn thought this teardown... Perhaps if they had built a mouse using the standard (inexpensive and not requiring significant R&D and engineering) couple microswitches and a optical chopper pair they could sell it for the $20-$40 that logitech sells it's wired mice.
But that is not the case is it?
Stick to the tech, haters benefit no one.
Err, I hate to break it to you, but this has -one- microswitch, as well as a plain old optical chopper pair. nothing special about either of those. as far as "significant R&D and engineering" goes, capacitive tech has been around for ages, a simple array of sensors isn't anything novel.
There really isn't anything in this that justifies the ridiculous price tag.
interesting that the connector says "foxlink" as opposed to "foxconn"
perhaps foxconn only handles the iphone?
