Windows Users Dig Up Magic Mouse Driver

| News

Apple's Magic Mouse is compatible only with Mac OS X and Windows running in Boot Camp. That wasn't good enough for the crew at Uneasysilence, so they found a way to dig the drivers out of Apple's recent Boot Camp Bluetooth Update for Windows.

Uneasysilence extracted 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the drivers for Windows XP and Windows 7 so any PC user can pair a Magic Mouse with their computer and finger gesture along with their Mac OS X-toting friends.

The Windows drivers are available for download at the Uneasysilence Web site.

they may have a copyright/licensing problem with whoever produced those drivers in the first place - unless they did?.

or not?...

Considering a lot of people use Parallels or others to run Windows on their Mac besides BootCamp, I do not see Apple kicking up a fuss about it.

Nor do I see Apple thinking their new mouse will be a factor in switching. (“Oh, look at that neat mouse! Guess I’ll get a Mac instead of that Dell after all.”, just is not going to happen.)  So if people want the Magic Mouse for their PC, it’s a sale for Apple they otherwise would not get.
