Magic Mouse and Color

Hey all,

I really like most of what I've seen about the Magic Mouse from Apple. The one thing that worries me is how it interacts with color. I can't navigate color without a third mouse button, which the Magic Mouse does not have, apparently. I'm wondering, though, if with the the scrolling and touch and such I wouldn't need it.

Has anyone used the Magic Mouse with Color? Any feedback?

Thanks in advance.

I had the same concern before I heard about MagicPrefs, a third party utility that allows you to add a middle click to the magic mouse. It is also available on Apple's website. I now use an MC Color controller with Color, so mouse functionality is not as important, but I did find the magic mouse with MagicPrefs a perfectly workable solution for Color before I got the controller.
