Apple Magic Mouse
The magic is in the Multi-Touch.
The new Magic Mouse redefines what a mouse should do. In addition to its smooth, seamless top-shell design that acts as one button or two, Magic Mouse features a Multi-Touch surface with gesture support. Scroll vertically, horizontally, and diagonally — a full 360 degrees — simply by touching anywhere on the top surface. With a greater surface area for scrolling, you can get around a long timeline in iMovie, through a lengthy web page in Safari, or around a set of images in iPhoto more efficiently. You can also swipe through pages in Safari or photos in iPhoto with two fingers. It’s the most advanced Apple mouse ever made.
One or two. Left or right.
The seamless, one-button design of Magic Mouse makes it simple to use right out of the box. But if you want the functionality of a two-button mouse, that’s easy, too. Just change the configuration in System Preferences. And the ambidextrous construction means Magic Mouse is great for lefties or righties.
Laser tracking engine.
Magic Mouse features a laser tracking engine that’s far more sensitive and responsive on more surfaces than traditional optical technology. That means it can track with precision on nearly every surface with no mousepad required.
Magic Mouse works wirelessly with your Bluetooth-enabled Mac. When you combine it with the Apple Wireless Keyboard, the result is an untethered and uncluttered workspace. Once you pair Magic Mouse with your Mac, you can enjoy a secure and reliable connection from up to 33 feet away.

The iPad was not designed for, and is probably never going to support, mouse control.
As an iPad developer, I can tell you that everything in iPad is completely built around touch control.
Therefore, I think it is extremely unlikely that a mouse pointer will ever be supported. The only way that would happen would for specific Apps that could use a connected mouse - like drawing or other productivity applications, but never for the operating system or for the majority of Apps.
I personally believe it is far more likely that some next generation iPad will support special styluses to use on the touch screen, to accomodate more accuracy and perhaps even pressure control. …More

Since the Magic Mouse knows when it is inactive and automatically reverts to a sort of "stand-by"mode , it conserves battery life and is, by Apple's standards, supposed to last 4 months like that. Your answer is no; although if your a paranoid-battery-life preserver like I am, I'd shut mine off every time:D …More
