  • You don't need one. The whole surface of Magic Mouse work same as your ibook or macbook's mouse pad. Just put one of your finger at surface part of the mouse and scroll it any direction 360〬. Then whaallaaa.
    To switch page in Safari, put your two fingers at surface part of the mouse and scroll it to left and right

    Here is the quote: "The Multi-Touch area covers the top surface of Magic Mouse, and the mouse itself is the button. Scroll in any direction with one finger, swipe through web pages and photos with two, and click and double-click anywhere. Inside Magic Mouse is a chip that tells it exactly what you want to do. Which means Magic Mouse won’t confuse a scroll with a swipe. It even knows when you’re just resting your hand on it."

    That's why they call it Magic Mouse. It really looks like magic. Go Apple.....

  • There is no longer a scroll ball on the Magic Mouse. You use your finder and swipe up and down across the top to scroll up and down. You can also scroll side to side by swiping left or right across the top.

  • Because the Magic Mouse uses multi-touch technology, the scroll is anywhere you want it to be on the mouse. Simply flick you finger vertically to scroll up, horizontally to scroll side to side, or in a circle to do both at once.

  • Anywhere. Just place your finger on the mouse and slide it up or down on the mouse like you would normally do. The whole top surface is one big sensor.

  • There is no scroll wheel or ball, however you can still scroll. The mouse is multi touch, so you can scroll in any direction just by moving your finger across the surface with one finger.

  • Just run one or two fingers down the surface of the mouse where a scroll ball would be on other mice, and it will scroll down like it does with a Mac laptop.

  • The Magic Mouse automatically detects any scrolling gestures you make on its surface, weather you use one finger (as you would with a trackball) or two fingers (as you would with a trackpad).

    speaking from experience its pretty awesome!

  • This mouse supports gestures. Just swipe your fingers across the top, slide a finger up or down. I recommend you watch the video on the apple.com, it makes it very clear.
