    Hi all,

    I'm thinking about switching from my Logitech MX400 to Mighty Mouse (I'm starting not to like the shape of the logitech, too big. MM is a breeze to work with...) and I have a question.

    The Logitech essentially has one button more (it has two side buttons, each separately programmable) and I use it for executing Cmd+H on the active app -- and I've grown pretty addicted to it. Hiding an app with a mouse is a lovely feat... And the second one is for Expose.

    So, I have to decide which of the two feats I assign to the MM side buttons. And here goes my Q: If I decide on the hiding feat, is it possible to assign app hiding to the MM side buttons?

    I was thinking maybe I could create an AppleScript that executes Cmd+H on an active app (is this possible at all with AS?) and assign the Apple script to those sides...

    Or do you guys have any other ideas? The Logitech really has fantastic button binding possibilities, but the MM is really nice to work with...

    Thanks in advance.

    Just to be clear: I know of SteerMouse. I'm just trying to find other ways before I decide to buy it :)
