Mine hasn't even shipped yet. I ordered it the day after they were announced. Am I alone? Sad

This is sort of a bummer. I thought 10.6.2 would be needed to enable the Magic Mouse.

It's a shame the didn't add support for Expose and rotating pictures. I could probably live without rotate, but the lack of Expose is kinda holding me back from buying one.

Hey, Weee. I don't use mighty mouse, but am wondering how it works on Expose? I use a wireless mouse (came with a wacom tablet) that can activate dashboard widget when the central wheel is pressed. Didn't find any way that could activate Expose, but there maybe some hidden feature like mighty mouse ... who knows? If you can describe the way mighty mouse works, may be ... my wireless mouse can too? Thanks for your sharing.

I don't know how many mouse buttons you have fiat, but you can assign or change your buttons for Expose and Dashboard in System Preferences -> Expose & Spaces.

Devo, thanks so much. I got it. My mouse has 3 buttons, so just press the right button (secondary), Expose is activated. Nice!

Am I the only one curious why a update for snow leopard comes after the the release date of the mouse?? Hello SL was released a time ago and would have expected the software updates to be up to date with the hardware release.

Hi All, My new Magic Mouse arrived this morning........Fantastic! Love it so much I have ordered another one for our macmini in the lounge room (lucky macmini). Scrolling is amazing, two-finger gestures (hehe) work well. I do agree I miss expose on the mouse, but I just started using the keyboard key on F3, does the job. The new magic mouse feels much lighter than the old wireless mighty mouse. Hmmm feels goooood.

I don't know if the Magic Mouse has the technology in place, but three finger gestures up and down for Expose would be awesome. I bet a lot of Mighty Mouse hold outs would switch then.
