    Several readers have pointed out that the user guide for Apple's just-announced Magic Mouse contains a reference to Mac OS X 10.6.2, which is yet to be released.
    While OS X 10.6.2 is not required for the Magic Mouse to function, users running OS X 10.5.8 through OS X 10.6.1 will have to install a separate software update to enable support for the new device. The mention of OS X 10.6.2 suggests that Apple plans or at least did plan for the update to be released to consumers around the product launch.

    Apple has seeded three builds of OS X 10.6.2 to developers, with the most recent having been delivered last Friday. The update notably addresses an issue with guest accounts that has resulted in some users losing all data from their regular user accounts.

    Hope this update brings a little more change than just this mouse update...

    I'm sick of my web browsers crashing when I try to upload images. This isn't limited to Safari by the way. Every single browser. Quite annoying. Let's hope this 10.6.2 update fixes all that and more. :)

    I hope so. I am sick of placing files on an external disk and having them not recognized until the disk is ejected and then reconnected.

    I heard from a source they are planning to even go as far as 10.6.3. But you didn't hear it from me!

    I heard from a source that they would go as far as 10.7, but you heard it from me.

    Will the Magic Mouse's gestures work in Firefox too? Specifically the forward and back gestures that were demoed in Safari.

    I hope so. I hate the problems with the Apple Remote and XMBC, Plex, Movist, VLC,...

    Please fix the expose bug and the eSATA expresscard kernel panics.

    I don't want a magic mouse--it looks too small and uncomfortable to hold.

    It will be interesting to get my hands on one.

    Should be quite a bit of fun!

    I don't think it looks uncomfortable to hold, as I only hold a mouse with the tips of my fingers anyway, but does it have a middle click, eg mouse wheel click? If not I don't want it. And does it have side buttons? Not required, but a nice feature.

    +10 on the middle click. Thats the big question for me. I have to say watching to demo videos etc.... I love it; however, it seems like there is infinite possibilities for configuration and yet they didn't give us squat. Like how about a 2 finger tap for middle click off the top of my head??

    Two finger click is primary click by default. That way, you don't have to lift your hand for a regular click. Like on the Mighty Mouse.
    I don't know how they'd be able to implement a third click.
    I just wish they wouldn't have gotten rid of the squeeze.

    I think this picture pretty much sums it all up. You have to be content with what Steve thinks is best for you:

    On the Mighty Mouse you can click with 4 fingers, it will still do a left click. And doesn't this push down and click? If so, then it could be the exact same as the Mighty Mouse for the middle click.

    When the article is saying the near feature, do they mean sometime this week or next week? Because near future sounds like a long time for me lol.:eek:

    Well it will have to be yes, as I think 10.6.2 is required for the mouse to actually function.

    I couldn't find any info regarding activating Expose using the Magic Mouse...

    Anyone have any ideas? - is the squeeze function still there? can you do it via swipe?

    Or will 10.6.2 bring this option to the prefs?

    You want to know what I hope 10.6.2 brings? Actual optical media.

    Magic Mouse

    Anyone needing precision will want the audible recognition of a click. I like the touchpad on my Macbook but... in a mouse only for home use.

    The Imacs are nice, even if they should all have had Quad core processors, nearly all the PCs have them now. Dam that 27" screen is enormous.

    My concern is whether you have to first lift your finger to click, or if you can just apply pressure. With my current traditional mouse, I have my first two fingers resting on the buttons when I use it, and just have to push the button to click. Having to first lift your finger every time you want to click may not sound like a big thing, but it's a common cause of RSI.
