Magic Mouse

Magic Mouse

Since my beloved Mighty Mouse has not been functioning as preferred (specifically, the top and side buttons were not being recognized) I have been eagerly anticipating Apple's Fall product update so that I could look into getting whatever the new iteration of the mouse might be. Today Apple announced the new Magic Mouse and while I am very excited to try one out in person, I was less excited about the fact that it is limited to only two buttons and the simplified Preference Pane doesn't look like it would allow for re-mapping of any multi-touch gestures to count as other buttons.

With the sad fact before me that in the near future I might have to settle for a no-more-than-2-button Apple mouse, I decided to give repairing my current mouse's functionality another go. Turns out, simply setting up the buttons in the great USB Overdrive peripheral controller fixes the issue. Nice, huh?
