Do you need old system software disks to boot your vintage Mac?

I'm a total Apple addict, as you might tell.

Magic Mouse! Finally!

I’ve been trying to get my hands on one of these bad boys since Christmas, but it’s been out of stock every time I’ve gone to the Apple Store.

I should have just ordered it online. Anyway...

I love this thing! Gone are the days of the sticky Mighty Mouse scroll ball. I loved the Magic Mouse. I loved it so much that I got one when it first went wireless. I then bought a new one when that one got smashed. I then bought parts to repair that one when it broke too. I loved the Mighty Mouse, but that damn scroll ball sucked!

Other than Targus, I couldn’t find another mouse that matched Apples’s look and feel. People just don’t know how to make a nice looking mouse in white. So basically, I stuck with the Mighty Mouse.

I immediately took to the multitouch wonder that is the Magic Mouse. There’s no learning curve, and there’s no getting used to it. It just feels right, and just works naturally.

I also installed MagicPrefs so that I could have even more multitouch love from my Magic Mouse.

Now a 3-fingered click launches Expose and a 4-fingered click launches Dashboard. 2 fingered swipes left, right, up, or down changes my Space.

That’s just awesome.

Cue the obligatory unboxing ceremony:

It’s definitely a lot thinner than the Mighty Mouse.

And there you have it! The Magic Mouse is now Apple Mouse #5 for me. (Sorry, never had a puck!) So, if your Mighty Mouse is killing you, and you can’t see yourself with a cheap $20 black piece of junk PC mouse, the Magic Mouse is for you.
