    I´m really amazed by the new Magic Mouses looks and th idea of a touch pad. But on the other hand I´m really disappointed by the fact that Apple just ignores such things as a middle button click. Ok, maybe they don´t think people should use that, but still there are games and programs on the Mac that relies heavy on the middle mouse button...such as Maya, Cad programs, games, etc..
    Is there any way you can emulate middle click byt holding down right or left mouse button while holding a keyboard key? If not, I´m really disapponted, the Magic mouse is half useless to me, while it could have been so great.

    any help is really appreciated.
    ps! I dont mean tapping so you can get to expose etc (I´ve seen a couple made a hack for that), I mean holding down middle button kind of command.

    Just give them some time. I'm sure there will be an update that allows more multi touch gestures. They just wanted to get the Magic Mouse out the door at the sam time as all of the other products that were shown off the same day.

    ok I will cross my fingers for that being right :) I really hope that´s the case.
    but still meanwhile, a keyboard button while clicking wouldn´t be a tremendous deal to make I would assume...and would atleast make people such as myself more patient :)
