Magic mouse: Tap to click

You know something that has always bothered me is the loud and obnoxious clicking sound which happens whenever you click with a mouse. Unfortunately for me my new magic mouse is louder than previous mice I've used. When I use the mouse at school during class, or at the library the noise is very noticeable, annoying and distracting to others (and to me).

I wonder if there is a way to setup the magic mouse to tap to click in the same way that touchpads work. Is this possible?

Thanks for listening to my rant.

From what I know of, not yet.

Although I don't think the "clicking" sound is that loud, personally.

Tapping is obviously physically possible. Why isn't it implemented?

I haven't used a magic mouse a lot, but it seems like you'd get a lot of accidental clicks with tap to click on a magic mouse.

Download it, add tap to click in the preferences and there you go. You get a ton of gestures, taps, swipes... you name what Apple didn't include and you will find it all there.
