    ...and rather than waste valuable space here, I though I'd be nice and direct you to a link instead.
    Here is my review.

    The above link is my personal experience with The Mouse. A thing to note: it has been revised.
    1. The cord is no longer 24", but now it is 34.5"
    2. The scroll wheel is smoother
    Other than that, go read the review.

    Great review!

    I can't wait until the BlueTooth version comes out in April! I just hope it's as good.

    has anyone heard any more specifics or confirmation on the release of the bluetooth version?? I'm happy that there is a look-alike 2 button w/scroll mouse out there (...another one) but the real great product would be the bluetooth version. There aren't very many of those out there.

    According to some of the AppleLegal comments, a Bluetooth model is in development. But MacMice isn't going to tell you that. They'd rather you bought this one right now.

    Does the basic two-button/scroll wheel functionality work without installing their driver software? I know you said their software "lets you control a lot of aspects of the mouse, such as what each button is used for", but if I just want the basics, does it work "right out of the box"?

    Yes, it is plug-n-play right out of the box. Under System Prefs -> Keyboard & Mouse, the Mouse tab will show a "Scrolling Speed" adjustment. But I would recommend you download the extra drivers anyway. It lets you do so much more, and it's only like 500k in size. It adds a "MouseCommand" option in System Prefs.
