One week after unveiling their brand new multi-touch mouse, Apple has released a “Magic Mouse” software update for Snow Leopard. Earlier today, Apple instructed Magic Mouse owners to:

“Install this software to take advantage of your Magic Mouse special features.  Mac OS X 10.6.1 is required before installing this update.”

The Magic Mouse was released along with a number of other new Apple innovations including a redesigned remote and some new Macs.


Formerly known as the “Mighty Mouse,” Apple lost the rights to the name of the fifties-era cartoon rodent. The Magic Mouse is getting great reviews, some tech sites are calling it the “best mouse Apple’s made in years.”
