I had hoped that the new Magic Mouse would have the same functionality as my old (but still in use) Kensington ADB "ThinkingMouse." Although there is no scroll wheel, the four symmetrical buttons give me six programmable clicks. For me it's the best time saver since learning how to type.

With the Magic Mouse, I had envisioned a touch surface that could, since it knew where your finger was, be programmed for 1, 2, 3, 4 or 6 buttons and yet still have vertical and horizontal scrolling. The Kensington 'MowseWorks' software has had that functionality (6 buttons + scroll) for years now, but no touch surface mouse, or even a mouse that even resembled the old ThinkingMouse.

Apple now has a touch surface mouse but, Alas! no proper software to take advantage of the mouse.

I almost pissed my pants about Mr. FUD and the halloween docs. Funny stuff.

There is a case for a virtual world app for sure, but my vote is for future games that tap into Intel's HAVOK
