    em...from Apple's site..

    Laser-Tracking Engine
    Magic Mouse uses powerful laser tracking that’s far more sensitive and responsive on more surfaces than traditional optical tracking. That means it tracks with precision on nearly every surface — whether it’s a table at your favourite cafe or the desk in your home office — without the need for a mousepad

    Just wanted some clarification. Maybe on frosted glass is will work, the frosting might be enough for the laser not to go straight through and work perhaps

    gizmodo has already included in their review that it does will not work on glass surfaces and it does not have the advanced tracking as the new logitech performance series mice just introduced.

    Unfortunately No

    Just got a Magic Mouse and I have a glass desk and it won't work without a mousepad or solid surface, Other than that I really like it so far, the scrolling and two finger gesturing is pretty cool. Hope this helps
