    Magic Mouse
    I jjust bought the Magic mouse today, I have downloaded the newest download, but it doesnt do anything but the 'normal' stuff.
    Left click, and I actually must use the bar to scroll.
    Any ideas?

    Did you enable scrolling and right-click in the Mouse pane in System Preferences?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I'm not understanding- there is much more to it than that?

    Yes. It can scroll in 360-degrees, right-click if you lift your left finger and click with your right. It can also do go back and forward in a web browser if you swipe with two fingers. But you do have to turn these options on in the Mouse prefpane. And of course, all of these features are demoed with a handy video in that prefpane.

    You need to go to /System Preferences/Mouse and enable the features you want.
